It was one of many public school districts and private schools in Kentucky to close after up to 8 to 10 inches of snow fell in some areas, according to the National Weather Service. Some colleges were already on spring break.
The University of Kentucky’s website said the campus is on a two-hour delay with the exception of specific employees.
Fayette school officials did not include information on a make-up day for Monday when they announced the cancellation.
At a recent meeting of the school board, there were no objections to using March 16 and May 29-31 as makeup days for those missed this winter. If there were more cancellations, June 1, 4-8 and 11-14 were possible makeup days.
School was to have ended on May 25, but that changed when bad weather forced cancellations on Jan. 5, 8, 16, 17.
