Fayetteville Public Schools move to online learning Wednesday

With the potential for winter weather looming, Fayetteville Public School officials on Tuesday announced that students will move to online learning on Wednesday, Feb. 23.

From the announcement:

We have made the decision to transition all Fayetteville Public Schools from in-person to online learning on Wednesday, February 23 due to the predicted inclement weather and road conditions. Wednesday will be considered Alternative Method of Instruction (AMI) day.

School officials said that due to the potential for power outages resulting from the winter storm, all assignments will be able to be made up if necessary.

Several other schools around the region had already announced the decision to move to online learning.
