Parents of students attending Fayette County Schools will receive school closing notifications on their phone and on Facebook. Parents will be contacted by phone if schools are closed due to hazardous travel conditions. The district’s phone notification system continues to be used by the school district to notify parents of school closings and other important information. In addition, parents, students and staff may “like” the school district FACEBOOK PAGE and follow the district to receive the district’s school closing information.
Parents will only be called at the main number on file with the district in the morning or evening. If school is dismissed during the day, parents will receive a call at the phone number on file with the district.
In addition, school closing information will still be available on local news channels. School closing information can also be found on the front page of the school district WEBSITE and many area television stations will also broadcast school closings and early dismissal information. In West Tennessee, any type of inclement weather, including snow, ice and flooding, can cause schools to close, along with extended power outages.
Since Fayette is a large county with many rural roads, hazardous conditions in one part of the county may close the entire district. When schools are closed due to weather, events are automatically cancelled at all schools. Director of Schools may make the decision to hold an event at the high school level if conditions have substantially improved during the day.
