Lexington District One schools remain closed throughout the weekend

Sep 12 2018

Lexington County School District One Schools will remain closed Friday, Saturday and Sunday due to the continued uncertainty of weather conditions caused by Hurricane Florence and the impact of those conditions on our area.

Governor Henry McMaster ordered schools closed across Lexington County until further notice. These closings apply to all schools, students and staff, and remain in effect until the governor decides to rescind his original order.

The district has canceled all daytime and evening meetings and events scheduled to take place at any Lexington District One school, performing arts center, field or facility for as long as the order remains in place. This includes all district programs, athletic practices or events, adult education classes, school or district-related meetings, events, or extra-curricular activities scheduled.

This also includes all church services and other outside activities normally held at schools over the weekend.

Weather permitting, Lexington County School District One will again offer free lunch to children 18-years-old and younger at Forts Pond Elementary, Gilbert Middle and White Knoll High schools from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Friday. All meals meet federal nutrition standards, must be eaten on site and are provided on a first come, first served basis.

The program, federally funded by the United States Department of Agriculture and administered through the S.C. Department of Education and Lexington County School District One, provides and serves meals to children regardless of race, color, national origin, sex, age or disability.
