Schools will remain closed in Edmonson County for Thursday, January 18th, according to Brian Alexander, Supt. of Schools.
The majority of county roads and other secondary roads are still covered, which presents hazardous driving conditions for school buses.
It will be NTI day #6. Mr. Alexander explained the importance of NTI days.
"I know people would probably rather not have any school work to do on these days, but these are days that do not have to be made up," he said. "If we don't do NTI, then those days have to be added to the end of the school year or possibly spring break. We have heard from a large majority of parents that like starting school a bit later, so in order to end the school year before Memorial Day, we try to utilize our NTI days as much as possible. We know this may not be the first choice for some, but we feel this is the best option for the majority of Edmonson County student families."
