LEXINGTON, Ky. (LEX 18) — All Fayette County Public schools and offices will be closed for the rest of the week (Feb. 17-19) due to icy road conditions.

Students will continue learning through NTI: 2DL. Employees will work remotely.

"Unfortunately, the severity of the weather is also impacting our ability to provide meals on our campuses," Lisa Deffendall, Spokeswoman for Fayette County Public Schools writes in a statement. "We recognize that weather conditions may lead to power outages and/or internet service disruption for students and teachers and will be flexible with anyone impacted by the storm. Any student unable to log-on will be given additional time to complete assignments and any teacher unable to connect will provide instruction at a future time."
