LEXINGTON, Ky. (LEX 18) — Students will have three additional days of winter break after a staff recommendation to amend
the district’s 2020-21 instructional calendar, the district announced on Monday evening.
FCPS students will now resume classes with Non-Traditional Instruction: Differentiated Distance Learning (NTI/2DL) on Thursday, Jan. 7, instead of Monday, Jan. 4.
The district said the change will give district leaders time to evaluate the holiday season’s impact on community spread of COVID-19 and enable schools to finalize logistical details to return safely and gradually to in-person classes.
The calendar revision shifts three instructional days from January to the end of school, which
makes Tuesday, May 18, the last day of class for students.
