Make-up days scheduled for Fayette schools

Mark your calendars: Fayette County Public Schools will be open Feb. 12 and March 5 to make up for days lost to winter weather.

Students originally were to be off Feb. 12 and March 5 — both dates fall on Friday — but Fayette Schools officials announced Tuesday that those dates now will be regular school days.

That's to make up for Fayette schools being closed on Jan. 7 and 8 because of icy weather.

The district has more make-up days built into the school calendar if they are needed, school officials said.
