Governor maintains school closings for the remainder of the year

Apr 22 2020

Dear Lexington District One Parents and Employees:

Just over a month ago, Governor Henry McMaster ordered that all South Carolina schools close. Today, he announced that schools would remain closed for the rest of the school year.

Even though we remain closed, that does not mean that teaching and learning stops. However, we have many decisions to make.

We already know from the South Carolina Department of Education that seniors’ last day will be Friday, May 15. We do not know yet what the last day of distance learning will be for all other students.

We also need to decide how and when we will gather laptops, uniforms from middle and high school students, what will be the last day to turn in student work, when parents will be able to get their students’ personal belongings, and so much more.

As soon as we finalize those decisions, we will communicate those to you.

I know that some of you hoped we would be able to return to school this year. Please remember that these decisions are made to protect your children, our staff, and our families.

If you are looking for information, remember our COVID-19 webpage contains links to information from the CDC and other agencies/organizations that you might find helpful. Just click on the “Questions about COVID-19?” banner at the top of our website.

Working together, we can get through this together. Thank you for your patience and support.

Dr. Greg Little, Superintendent
