LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - Jefferson County Public Schools administrators put off a decision on Friday's classes until the morning, as others closed schools the day before a winter storm moved into Kentuckiana.
JCPS administrators will monitor road conditions and work with the National Weather Service on the forecast, said Ben Jackey, a district spokesman.
"If (snow) happens the night before, it can make things a little easier," Jackey said. "Friday, what we're looking at, based on some of the computer models we've seen, is that this could be happening while we're at school. So that could make for a very difficult decision."
As JCPS administrators considered their options, school officials in Floyd and Clark counties said they would make a final decision early Friday morning to avoid having to release students early. In other Indiana districts, it's already official -- schools will not open Friday.
