Students come to Fayette County Public Schools with many health-related needs. If a student's health condition affects their ability to access or participate in the learning environment, they might be eligible for accommodations under Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 or through the district's Special Education Department. For 504 accommodation questions, contact your school's counselor. If your child has an Individual Education Plan or you believe they might need Special Education services, please contact the school's special education facilitator.

To ward off the flu and COVID-19, FCPS encourages annual vaccinations and masks for people who are medically fragile or immune-compromised. Check in with your family doctor or call the health department at (859) 288-2483 for information about shots and tests.
