• FCPS response to the COVID-19 pandemic

    All Fayette County Public Schools are closed through at least Friday, May 1. District offices are also closed to the public.


    Schools are coordinating their NTI, or Non-Traditional Instruction, for distance learning. Look for an NTI menu tab atop your school's homepage, or watch for direct communications from your children's teachers. 

    • Tech support: The district has set up a temporary help-desk for families who need technical support with their child's FCPS account or Chromebook. The Student Tech Support line, (859) 381-4410, is available from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. weekdays. 

    Keep those brains active!

    Additional educational activities appropriate for each grade level are also available; see the Instructional Activities menu tab.

    A phone call away

    You can reach the district's central office at (859) 381-4100 from 7:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. weekdays. Interpreters are available.

    Need a nurse?

    HealthFirst Bluegrass clinics at our schools can provide essential care for children and families, though not every site is open while schools are out. Call a clinic to make an appointment. Also, if your child is a clinic patient and you are interested in learning about telehealth options, please call (859) 381-3346 or -3172.

    Ask for help

    If children and families need support from a mental health professional, call (859) 381-4100 to be connected with someone who can help.

    Family Resource and Youth Services Centers will also be available by phone to support families with essential needs.
