Also, testing begins at 8:30 daily so please be sure your student is on time to school. They cannot join their class in the morning once a test session has started. Students test their best when they are able to test with their class in their regular setting so please arrive on time.

Students will need additional vaccinations before 2018-19 school year
Students' families are encouraged to schedule doctor visits as soon as possible because of new immunization requirements in Fayette County Public Schools covering Hepatitis A and MCV4 booster.
The first dose of Hepatitis A, which is required for all unvaccinated students regardless of age, should be received before Feb. 14 if possible. That puts the student on schedule to get the second dose in six months, prior to the start of the 2018-19 school year in mid-August.
Also, students will need to have the MCV4 booster when they turn 16.
Note that the state requires all students to bring in a new immunization certificate for the upcoming school year. Families can contact their physician or the health department for more information about the vaccines and certificates.
For other questions about health and wellness in FCPS, please contact coordinator Debbie Boian at (859) 381-3849.
Kindergarten registration is OPEN NOW for Online Registration (OLR) 2018-2019
