Two school districts are closed on Thursday, March 14: Jefferson County Public Schools and Bullitt County Public Schools.

This comes amid weeks of sickouts organized by public school teachers who want to protest bills in Frankfort they fear will hurt public education.

For JCPS, it’s the third day in the row of no school — and sixth day in the past two weeks.



Due to approximately a third of teachers being absent and the inability to safely cover a large number of classes with substitute teachers, all @JCPSKY schools will be closed Thurs., March 14, 2019. @YMCALouisville CEP “Snow Day” sites will be open:

In addition to snow day childcare sites being open at area YMCAs (get the list of locations here), there will be several schools open to provide lunch to students.



In addition to multiple Bus Stop Café routes tomorrow (Thursday, March 14), several @JCPSKY schools are opening from 12 to 2 p.m. for any child under 18 to receive free lunch. Times and locations are below:

In Bullitt County, the last day of school is now May 30.

School officials said Shepherdsville Elementary and Roby Elementary will be open from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. for anyone 18 and under who wants a free lunch.

JCPS will likely move the last day of school to June 7, though that has not been officially announced.

Teachers are keeping a close eye on politicians, and the sickouts make their distrust clear.
