http://www.wtvq.com/content/localnews/story/How-Will-KY-Schools-Make-Up-Snow-Days/OLicHVPMeEaojuWBSSApRw.cspx

 

Ian Preston of WTVQ-TV Ch. 36 interviewed Bath County Superintendent, Mr. Harvey Tackett, and Bath County parents concerning school closings and the impact on our school calendar.  Click the link above to view the video clip from the WTVQ website.

A quote from Mr. Tackett in the article, "Superintendent Harvey Tackett says about 90% of the students in the Bath County district live in rural areas on roads that are not plowed or treated for ice. He says it would be a safety issue if school buses tried to drive down some of those icy roads."
