Fayette County Public Schools are closed Thursday

Herald-Leader Staff ReportJanuary 22, 2014 

Fayette County Public Schools canceled Thursday classes, according to the school district's website, FCPS.net.

All Thursday afternoon and evening activities, including night school, were canceled.

The district sent an email to parents Wednesday, saying school was cancelled because of "unsafe road conditions on side roads and in subdivisions, combined with forecasts calling for the continuation of bitterly cold temperatures that will not allow road conditions to significantly improve."

District officials said the cancellation, the sixth day missed for winter weather, means students will be in school through June 4.
