Fayette County Public Schools has set a tentative schedule for 2014 high school graduations, pending any further calendar changes caused by winter weather, according to a news release. All the ceremonies will be in Rupp Arena.

Here's the schedule that was released Wednesday:

Friday, June 6

■ 4 p.m.: Lafayette

■ 7 p.m.: Paul Laurence Dunbar

Saturday, June 7

■ 10 a.m.: Tates Creek

■ 1 p.m.: Bryan Station

■ 4 p.m.: Henry Clay

Under state law, graduation ceremonies cannot be held until after the last instructional day of the school year.

School districts in Kentucky typically wait until the threat of winter weather is past and all make-up days are set before announcing graduation dates, the news release said.

The Fayette County School Board voted Monday to make June 6 the last day of classes for 2013-14, barring additional weather-related closings.
