Due to transportation problems during the first day of the academic year, Jefferson County Public Schools (JCPS) in Louisville, Kentucky, has canceled classes for Thursday and Friday. Marty Pollio, the superintendent of the district, stated that the first day was a "transportation disaster" in a video released on Thursday morning. Authorities have announced their intention of using this time to address the issues.
Due to transportation issues, numerous students spent hours stranded and faced considerable delays. According to JCPS spokesperson Carolyn Callahan, the upcoming days will be treated as traditional snow days and all extracurricular activities will be canceled as well. The school board has demanded transparency in dealings with the transportation issues.
Canceling school for two days has caused inconvenience to both parents and students. JCPS apologized for the situation and is working on a swift resolution to the transportation issues.
