Fayette County Schools will be closed Wednesday, January 25th. While we do not typically close our schools this far in advance of forecasted winter weather, our County is under a winter storm warning. There is a very high probability that we will receive significant amounts of snow throughout the morning. We have snow make-up days built into our calendar and we will make this day up on February 20th. Stay safe and enjoy the snow day!
Fayette County School Corporation is on a 2 hour delay today, Jan 12th due to heavy fog in many parts of Fayette County.
Fayette County Schools will be dismissing at regular times today. We are working closely with our law enforcement and after an update with the Sheriff, he will be working with local law enforcement to have police presence at each building during dismissal.

Letter from Superintendent
Fayette County Schools will be closed on Friday, February 4th due to winter weather conditions. We will make this day up using our 2nd built-in snow day on April 18th.
Enjoy your Snow Day and stay safe!
SNOW DAY on February 3rd!!!!
With the high confidence in a strong winter storm arriving tonight, we are closing Fayette County Schools tomorrow (Thursday, Feb. 3rd). All buildings will be closed on Thursday.
As we have two built-in snow make up days in our calendar, tomorrow's closure will be made up on Monday, February 21st.
I hope that you have a safe and fun snow day!
As we prepare for the upcoming winter weather arriving on Wednesday evening, the latest forecasts are calling for the changeover to frozen precipitation after 6:00 p.m. Our plan is to keep school in session for a regular school day on February 2nd. As we evaluate things mid-morning tomorrow, my hope is that ice or snow arrives after all of our students are safely home, as forecasted.
It is a very challenging decision to send students home early as that presents safety concerns when parents may not be home from work or other commitments. That decision to send students home early would only be made as a "last resort" when dangerous roadways are imminent. If this weather system develops as predicted, please keep in mind that we have two built-in snow make-up days in our calendar- Feb. 21st and April 18th. If we do end up closing school on Thursday and/or Friday, I hope our students can enjoy a safe and fun snow day!
FCSC Students, Staff, and Families:
Our CMS administrators were made aware of a possible threat made by a student. Law enforcement immediately began an investigation. Both the city and county law enforcement agencies have been directly involved in this ongoing investigation. We do not take any threat directed towards our students, staff, or schools lightly and this situation has been turned over to law enforcement and our prosecutor at this time.
As we do each day, we have a law enforcement officer onsite at Connersville Middle School and we have asked for additional police presence to help our students, staff, and families feel secure as we return to school on Monday morning. CMS will open on a regular schedule tomorrow and I want to reassure our families, staff, and community that the threat has been addressed to allow for the safe return of our students and staff. On behalf of the Fayette County School Corporation, I want to thank our city police department and sheriff's department for their support of our school safety initiatives and for their quick response to any emergency situations or threats that may arise.
Scott Collins, Superintendent
Fayette County School Corporation
FCSC Staff and Families,
We received notification at 4:00 p.m. today, September 30, 2021, that the governor has extended his directives with regard to COVID-19 protocols effective October 1st through October 31, 2021. The FCSC Board of School Trustees, at the September 2nd special board meeting, provided guidance that we follow our return to school planning unless directed otherwise by state or federal mandates. With the continuance of this mandate in Executive Order 21-27 by Governor Holcomb, we will be required to continue with our current protocols with masks, social distancing, and contact tracing. Thank you for your continued support and understanding!
