Lexington-Fayette Urban County Government on three-hour delay Monday
LEXINGTON, Ky. (WKYT) – If Fayette County Public Schools decides to extend the school year into June, it would not be an unprecedented action.

The current school calendar currently lists May 31 as the final day of school, but the school district canceled classes Monday.

Our outage numbers have climbed to over 7,000 due in part to situations like this one between Paint Lick and Berea. Please know our employees are working as safely as possible to make repairs.

The school district says it has not made a decision on whether or not they will extend the calendar into June, and there is no timetable on when they would make a decision on the matter.

The last time Fayette County Public Schools held June school days was 2014-15 school year, when the last day of school was June 6.

Road crews prepared Sunday night for the storm, but the snow came down rapidly, as quickly as one inch per hour at some points, according to WKYT Meteorologist Chris Johnson.

LEXINGTON, Ky. (WKYT) – The Lexington-Fayette Urban County Government is running on a three-hour delay Monday morning.

Some parts of Lexington saw as many as ten inches of snow in the overnight hours, though the snow stopped falling in the Lexington area by around 7:30 Monday morning.
