Heart to Heart Letter Writing Campaign
Participants are encouraged to write letters, make cards, draw pictures or share any messages that offer comfort and hope to those providing care on the frontlines.

This partnership with the UK College of Agriculture, Food, and Environment and the UK College of Nursing will bring together both colleges to collect letters of thanks, encouragement, and support to Health Care Providers on the front line battling COVID-19 across Kentucky and the rest of the United States.

Kindergarten Registration for 2020-21 Still Proceeding
During the April 7-30 sign-up window, families of this fall’s incoming kindergartners may still begin with the usual http://www.fcps.net/register online registration despite the COVID-19 pandemic. Because all schools and FCPS offices are currently closed to the public, school staff will then contact each family for a time to complete their paperwork after the social distancing guidelines are lifted.
The final registration window, which is for kindergartners and other students new to Fayette County Public Schools, is July 30 through the start of classes on Aug. 12. Please call the school first to make sure staff are available between 9 a.m. and 1 p.m. weekdays this summer. This sign-up window is also subject to change because of COVID-19 restrictions. Check the district’s http://www.fcps.net/registration registration/enrollment webpage for the latest updates.
