The New York City school bus strike has entered its fourth day.

Bus drivers braved the cold temperatures to picket here in New York while the National Labor Relations Board is meeting in Washington, D.C. to decide whether or not the strike is legal.

A decision is not expected until sometime next week, so parents will have to keep making different arrangements to get their kids to school for possibly two more weeks.

The city’s last bus strike in 1979 lasted 14 weeks. Mayor Michael Bloomberg said this one will not last until June.
