Children in some Central Kentucky school districts will get an extended winter break.

Scott County officials said Monday night that the school district will be closed Tuesday because of weather. Students in the Paris Independent school district won’t return to class until Jan. 4 because of heating problems in school buildings.

Numerous counties in Kentucky were under a wind-chill advisory Monday night heading into Tuesday. Temperatures were expected to drop into the single digits, with wind chills dropping below zero.

As of Monday night, students in Fayette County Public Schools were scheduled to return to class Wednesday.
