Changes for New School Year in Fayette County

As students and parents prepare for the beginning of school, here are a few changes that will be in place on the first day.

The high school start time has been moved up to 8:25 a.m. to allow for a 15-minute instructional focus period for students to get remedial help, work on assignments or participate in additional activities. The end time will remain at 3:20 p.m. The start and end times for elementary and middle school are the same as last year: (elementary) 7:45 a.m.-2:30 p.m. and (middle) 8:25 a.m.-3:40 p.m.

Lunch prices have increased by a nickel at the elementary level and by a dime at the middle and high school levels. The increase is due to state budget cuts. The new prices are (elementary) $2.10 and (middle and high) $2.25.

Cleveland Elementary has a new principal at the helm following the retirement of Jean Miller who was the school’s first principal. The school’s assistant principal, Angie Southers, has been promoted to principal. Southers has worked within the system for a number of years and was the assistant principal at Tyrone Elementary before coming to Cleveland. She looks forward to working with the students, parents, staff and community in her new position.
