Fayette County Public Schools will be closed Wednesday due to the weather forecast calling for dangerously cold temperatures, district spokeswoman Lisa Deffendall said.

All school activities on Wednesday are also canceled.

District officials are monitoring the weather closely to make decisions about Thursday and Friday should conditions warrant, Deffendall said. She said families will be notified as early as possible about closing and delays so they can make arrangements.

Students in the district have missed one other day this academic year.

Classes were called off January 25 due to a large numbers of students and staff having the flu.
