From Fayette County Public Schools:
All Fayette County Public Schools will operate on a two-hour delay on Wednesday, January 8, 2014. Even though temperatures will still be cold, we are waiting until after sunrise to begin picking up students at the bus stops.
To recap our protocols when school is delayed by two hours:
- All schools will start two hours later than normal.
- Buses will run regular routes, just add two hours to the regularly scheduled times.
- Zero-hour classes at Paul Laurence Dunbar and Tates Creek high schools are cancelled.
- Zero-hour classes at Henry Clay High School will take place, just two hours later than normal.
- On a two-hour delay, there will be no technical school classes. Afternoon schedules remain the same either way.
- There will be no morning Early Start sessions. Afternoon Early Start sessions will be on a regular schedule.
- Dismissal times remain the same
- Afternoon and evening activities continue as usual.
Decisions about making up the time missed due to a delay will be made on a case-by-case basis in accordance with current state guidelines. So at this point, we remain at three days missed for winter weather so far this year.
There was a mix up in the published instructional calendar and we cannot use May 20, 2014 as a weather make-up day because there will be a primary election that day. That means that we will be in school on April 25, 2014 and will have to take any remaining make up days after the original last day of school. Instead of May 28, 2014 being our last day of school with students, we will now be in school the entire week after Memorial Day. If we miss no more days of school this winter, May 30 will be our last day of school.
