Fayette County Public School has released a statement amid COVID-19 regarding school closures:
Many of you have asked for details about information you can help share with families about services to students and families while Fayette County Public Schools will be closed for at least the next three weeks.
Educational activities appropriate for students at each grade level are being provided two ways:
  1. Students at every grade level were given copies of “FCPS Unplugged” to take home with them today. This document includes 15 days of activities students can do at home without the use of electronic devices.
  2. Families and students can visit www.fcps.net/COVID19 and there will be online lessons posted under the link for “Instructional Activities.)

This information has since been updated as of March 25, 2020. Click here for the updated information.
