  • Weather Make Up Days

    As of February 12, 2018, students in the Fayette County Public Schools have missed four days and six hours of school due to winter weather. Although the instructional calendar already identifies possible weather make-up days, we wanted to send an update to help you make plans for your family.

    School will definitely be in session on Friday, March 16, 2018, which was originally scheduled to be a day off for students. As of this point, we also plan to be in session on Tuesday, May 29, Wednesday, May 30 and Thursday May 31, 2018. Please adjust your calendars at home to reflect these changes, knowing that there is still a lot of winter left to go.

    If we do not miss any more days due to winter weather, May 31, 2018 would be the last day of school. High school graduations would be scheduled on May 31 and June 1. Please note that high school graduation dates and times will not be set until mid-spring after the threat of bad weather has passed and all make-up days have been announced.

  • Car/Bus Loop Reminders

    Just a friendly reminder that no cars are allowed in the bus loop during drop off in the mornings.  Most buses arrive at school around 7:20a.m. so please plan accordingly.  Also, please do not drop off students on Clearwater Way as this is a very busy street and not safe for students to cross.  Always use crosswalks in the parking lots as well.  Thanks for helping keep our students safe!
