Friday, May 19, will be the last day of classes in Fayette County Public Schools. But high school graduations cannot be held that weekend because Rupp Arena is already booked with a conference for the company Alltech.
The school district on Monday released this schedule for its 2017 commencements at Rupp:
Wednesday May 24:
▪ 4 p.m.: Lafayette High School
▪ 7:30 p.m.: Paul Laurence Dunbar High School
Thursday May 25:
▪ 12:30 p.m.: Henry Clay High School
▪ 4 p.m.: Tates Creek High School
▪ 7:30 p.m.: Bryan Station High School
In 2016-17, Fayette County canceled classes only once because of winter weather, on Jan. 6, and the makeup date was March 17. Therefore, the last day of classes will be as scheduled — on May 19.
