JCPS on normal schedule Wednesday

LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - Students in Jefferson County who were hoping for another day off are out of luck. JCPS officials decided not to cancel or delay classes for Wednesday.

Early childhood education is open as well, but there will be no transportation.

"Meteorologists were confident it was going to come. I think we made the right decision Tuesday; today we've had some complaints we made the wrong decision," said JCPS Transportation Director Rick Caple.

Schools across Kentuckiana canceled classes on Tuesday because of the threat of snow, with the exception of JCPS.  The decision came just before 5:00 am.

"Some will be glad to go back and some want to be off. It's still a tough call we know we will have issues in subdivisions," Caple said.

Caple believed there would be only minor delays.

"We're going to be running on time as much as possible.  We know we'll be late in some areas," Caple said.

So far, JCPS has called off classes for a total of 4 days in the 2010-2011 school year, which now stretches into June.
