The Christian County Public Schools district in Kentucky issued a Winter Weather Advisory on Monday, January 30th, prompting their decision to close schools to in-person learning on Tuesday, January 31st – known as NTI Day 1. The National Weather Service predicted severe inclement weather, and Superintendent Chris Bentzel emphasized the district’s commitment to the safety of their students as the main reason behind the closure.
Families have been notified of the district’s decision through Infinite Campus messaging and all CCPS social channels, websites, and local news broadcasts. Aftercare programs, extracurricular activities, and sports have also been canceled for Tuesday, and families should monitor their local school’s social channels for updates.
