Closings & Delays


School Delays & CancellationsAs winter weather approaches, parents of students in Fayette County Schools are reminded there may be times when it will be necessary to delay or close school. Under most circumstances, the decision to delay or close school will be made between 5:30 and 6:00 AM.

A delay means the School Corporation is delaying the start of school by two hours. Buses will run two hours later than normal.

A school closing means that school buildings are closed and students will not be in attendance that day. Days cancelled by weather will be made up at the end of the school year.

Parents who need childcare should make arrangements for someone to care for their younger children in the event schools are closed.
