Fayette County Public Schools has released a statement for COVID-19 updates:

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. If you would like to repost the PDFs to your sites, you can download them here:
