• Nelson County Schools closed Friday, Jan. 12

    Nelson County Schools has canceled all school for Friday and has activated the plan for use of Non-Traditional Instructional days (NTI/Best Days), due to the prospect of dangerous road conditions. Nelson County child care centers will remain open.

    NTI/Best Days are used when main roads are clear but some side roads are not clear enough for buses to travel safely.  Our goal is to reduce the loss of instructional time as students continue working at home and teachers remain available through email, Skype, phone, or other methods of communication.
