Lexington County School District One is canceling school tomorrow, Thursday, October 11, 2018, for all students and staff in all attendance areas.
The safety of our students and staff drive our decision. Forecasters predict that Hurricane Michael will bring high wind gusts to our area on Thursday. School buses should not operate when sustained winds are at 30 miles per hour or greater or when frequent wind gusts exceed 40 miles per hour.
The district also cancels all daytime and evening meetings and events scheduled to take place at any Lexington District One school, performing arts center, field or facility. This includes all district programs, athletic practices or events, adult education classes, school or district-related meetings, events, or extra-curricular activities scheduled for tomorrow.
District officials will send parents, staff and students any further information about school closings or delays through SchoolMessenger, the district’s telephone calling system.
Parents can also get updates by following the district on Facebook or Twitter, checking the district’s website at www.lexington1.net, calling the district’s 24-hour recorded telephone message center at 803-821-1299, watching local television stations, listening to local radio stations or going to media websites.
