Snow day! These Kentucky school districts are canceling class Friday

Grayson, Marion and Taylor County students won't have to do any online learning Friday as multiple inches of snow fall across Kentucky.

KENTUCKY, USA — Students in several Kentucky school districts will get to enjoy an "old-fashioned snow day" Friday after several inches of snow fell across the state Thursday.

As of 3:30 p.m., the following counties have canceled classes for Jan. 7. There will not be virtual instruction for these districts:

  • Bullitt County Schools
  • Grayson County Schools
  • Jefferson County Public Schools
  • LaRue County Schools
  • Marion County Schools
  • Meade County Schools
  • Taylor County Schools

Some districts, including Hardin County and Washington County will have non-traditional instruction (NTI) Friday.

Several school districts in both Kentucky and southern Indiana canceled in-person instruction Wednesday evening in anticipation of Thursday's winter weather. Anywhere from 1" to 6" of snow is expected to fall across the state throughout the day with the heaviest accumulations south of the Kentucky Parkways.

Jefferson County Public Schools (JCPS) in Louisville dismissed students early Thursday morning due to the inclement weather. Sometime after 7 p.m., the district announced that it would have a "traditional snow day" Friday.

The above list will be updated throughout the evening Thursday. For the latest updates on school closings and delays, click here.
