Friday, Jan. 12, school canceled

Nelson County School District has closed all schools for Friday, Jan. 12. The district has activated the use of Non-Traditional Instructional days (NTI/Best Days) due to the prospect of dangerous road conditions. Nelson County childcare centers will remain open.

NTI/Best Days are used when main roads are clear but some side roads are not clear enough for buses to travel safely.  The goal is to reduce the loss of instructional time as students continue working at home and teachers remain available through email, Skype, phone, or other methods of communication.

A winter storm warning is in effect from Friday morning through Saturday morning for Nelson County and Bardstown. An advisory covers all of central Kentucky and southern Indiana.

The forecast is for rain to change from a mix of freezing rain and sleet into snow. The precipitation may be heavy at times and is expected to cause difficult travel conditions, with accumulations of up to four inches of snow with some ice also possible.
