  • Graduation Information

    Thursday, May 31 will be the last day of classes in Fayette County Public Schools for 2017-18, as confirmed after the school board voted March 26 to amend the district’s instructional calendar and forgive the final snow day rather than have students make up the Monday missed in mid-March. Therefore, the six high school graduations in Rupp Arena will be May 31 and June 1. 

    Frederick Douglass graduation will be Friday, June 1 at 4 pm.
