S.T.A.R. Weather Policy

As we head into the winter season, the potential for inclement weather becomes a real possibility. Therefore, weather conditions may dictate class cancellations because of slick/hazardous road conditions in the region. S.T.A.R. daytime classes will be called off if the local/county school district cancels school for that specific day due to wintery conditions. For example, any day class scheduled in Lexington will be cancelled if Fayette County Schools are closed that morning due to inclement weather. For evening classes, you may contact the ABC Education Branch by calling 502-564-4850 between the hours of 3 p.m. and 4:30 p.m. on the scheduled class day.
