JCPS called off elementary, middle and high schools on Friday Jan. 12, Tuesday Jan. 16 and Wednesday Jan. 17 resulting in a six day weekend for students.
Manual students spent their time off sledding, catching up on sleep, taking photos, spending time with their friends, playing board games, drinking hot chocolate and getting adjusted to the new semester.
Take a look at what Louisville looked like this weekend and how students enjoyed the cold weather.
Special thanks to Ella Mays (12, J&C), Olivia Brotzge (11, J&C) and Mia Breitenstein (10, J&C) for their video contributions.
