Despite bus drivers being back to work Wednesday, BPS athletic director Ken Still is unclear whether sports in the city will resume this afternoon. Scheduled for today are four volleyball matches, two girls’ soccer games, and five boys’ soccer games.

On Tuesday, 10 games throughout the city were postponed. According to Still, they will be rescheduled.

Even though the situation is still up in the air, Friday's football games most likely will be played.

"In the city of Boston, you have to be willing to adapt," said Latin Academy football coach Rocco Zizza. "So today, if there's no buses, we'll walk to practice. Same thing with tomorrow."

Keep posted for more updates.
