Reporting positive cases
As of Sept. 28, 2020, Emergency Regulation 902 KAR 2:220E requires families to notify their child’s school within 24 hours of learning the child has tested positive for COVID-19. FCPS employees who test positive must also inform the district. Fayette County Public Schools has established a COVID-19 Hotline for processing these notifications, which must be submitted to the Kentucky Department for Public Health. The hotline is open Monday through Saturday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.
Please choose one of these three ways to alert FCPS:
- Call (859) 381-FCPS (3277),
- Email the COVID-19 Hotline to request a follow-up phone call to report the details, or
- Submit your name and phone number via this online form.
Families and staff may also email the COVID-19 team for follow-up phone contact to gather additional information or to address any questions. To offer COVID-19 related feedback, please email the superintendent and the school board.
