Clearing Up Confusion About Spring Break In Fayette County

Fayette County school officials say they received dozens of calls from parents after a report mistakenly said spring break had been canceled.

The Lexington Herald Leader reported Tuesday that the break had been eliminated, but that is not the case. Fayette County school officials tell us there will be spring break, March 31st through April 4th.

A note is being sent home with every student in the district to make sure there's no confusion.

The Herald-Leader blames a copy writing error for the mistake.

    Actually, I think teachers and students need and deserve a Spring Break...I would rather my child have a break in a couple of weeks (Spring Break), than get out a few days sooner in June. Makes perfect sense to me! I also agree with Jason...many families do make travel plans during Spring Break...this is really the best time to travel b/c it's not nearly as hot!

    The reason they had to have Spring Break. Is that some families do take trips on Spring Break. Could imagine having to cancel reservations at the last minute.

    How bright is it for school officials to let school out since so much time has already been missed... why not use those days and let them out of school a few days earlier this year... Seems all of them will be going to about the middle of JUNE!! More time off right now just what they need...
