LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - Jefferson County Public Schools will be closed Friday, April 13 due to a high number of teacher absences.

The district made the announcement on Twitter just before 4:30 p.m. Thursday.

They hope to not make up the day, so graduation dates will stay the same. But that has not been approved by the school board.

In a subsequent tweet, school officials told a parent asking about scheduled sporting events to check with their school.
