As of today, the school district has had six snow days. Make-up days are scheduled for the following dates: February 27, March 9, April 2, April 3, May 29 and June 1.
To help ensure students have a safe return, mechanics and bus drivers spent Sunday morning checking over buses. City officials have also been working with JCPS officials to make sure that key school routes will be cleared for Monday morning.
As of now, Jefferson County is under a wind chill advisory until 9 AM tomorrow. Wind chill is expected to be as low as -15 degrees Fahrenheit. JCPS will be on a 2 hour delay. University of Louisville has no delays. Dress appropriately for the weather.
