    The National Weather Service is predicting up to a foot of snow in the Louisville Metro area. A Winter Storm Warning has been issued for Jefferson County and other counties around Kentuckiana starting from this evening to 1am Tuesday, February 17. Many parents (JCPS in particular) have received their texts from their local school systems and officials announcing that schools are closed. This snow day will be made up on Friday, April 3, according to Jefferson County Public Schools Facebook page. As a JCPS parent, I say kudos to the school system for making the announcement early this evening and allowing parents to alter schedules and make plans for care for their school children. The following is a list of school closings so far:

    Academy For Individual Excellence
    Anderson County Schools
    Boyle County Schools
    Breckinridge/Grayson Head Start
    Franklin County Public Schools 
    Friends School
    Hancock County Public Schools
    Hayfield Montessori 
    Jefferson County Public Schools
    Jefferson County Catholic Elementary and High Schools 
    LaRue County Schools
    Northside Christian School
    Valor Traditional Academy 
    Washington County Schools


    Christian Academy of Indiana
    Crawford County Schools 
    Floyd County Head Start 
    Greater Clark County Schools 
    New Albany-Floyd County Schools 

    Obviously, many more school systems will be announcing closings as the night and morning progresses. According to the National Weather Service Louisville Kentucky Facebook, "Snow will spread into the Ohio Valley tonight. The heaviest snow will fall Monday morning and afternoon, with rates of 2 inches or more per hour. Most of the region can expect at least 6 inches of snow, with localized totals of a foot or more likely. Prepare now as travel will become very hazardous or impossible on Monday."

    If you are home with your children, check out the Louisville Metro Parks link about places to sled around the city. See the metro's website for updated information about the storm.
