DENVER  — Colorado authorities are trying to reach drivers stranded by a snowstorm that also forced about 60 students to spend the night in their school.

The El Paso County Sheriff's Office says officers are still responding to motorists on the Eastern Plains who have called for help, most of them from side roads.

Ellicott fire officials have rescued around 20 people so far.

East of Colorado Springs, about 60 Miami-Yoder district students were stuck at school because of hazardous road conditions that prompted the closure of Colorado Highway 94 leading to the school.

Superintendent Rick Walter told KUSA-TV on early today the kids were having breakfast and watching movies and would be home soon.

Interstate 70 was reopened after it was closed overnight from Aurora to the Kansas line.
