Fayette County moves to online learning Tuesday as winter weather shuts down schools

Fayette County Public Schools will move to online learning Tuesday as winter weather moved into the region late Sunday and early Monday morning.

Students will have a non-traditional instruction day as winter weather conditions and icy roads continue, said district spokesperson Dia Davidson-Smith.

Families and staff members were expected to receive more details from the district, Davidson-Smith said.

All sports practices and extracurricular practices were canceled Monday due to ”rough weather and road conditions,” Davidson-Smith said earlier in the day.

Schools were already closed Monday due to the Martin Luther King Jr. holiday.

Fayette County was under a winter weather advisory through Tuesday morning, according to a post on X from WKYT meteorologist Chris Bailey.

Several other Kentucky school districts canceled in-person classes Tuesday, including Scott and Jessamine, which adjoins Fayette County.
