Fayetteville Public Schools to continue online learning Friday


Fayetteville Public Schools will once again shift to online learning on Friday due to hazardous road conditions, officials this afternoon announced.

Road conditions have been improving over the course of the day Thursday due to warming temperatures, but not quite enough to reassure school officials that it’s safe to return to class this week.

“Due to road conditions, Fayetteville Public Schools will continue online learning on Friday, February 3,” the announcement read. “Friday will be considered an Alternative Method of Instruction (AMI) day.”

It’s the fifth consecutive day of no in-person classes this week.

With temperatures forecast in the 50s over the weekend, students will likely be able to return to classes on Monday.
