Weather update

Dear Lexington District One Families:

Out of abundance of caution, all Lexington District One schools will shift to e-learning tomorrow, Friday, Jan. 21, because of potentially severe winter weather predicted for our area. 

Though the National Weather Service doesn’t predict a major event for our county, the forecast indicates the potential for bad weather during our arrival and dismissal time. That could be dangerous for our buses and drivers – some of whom are teen drivers headed to and from our high schools. 

The temperatures are also expected to drop throughout the day which could cause worsening conditions. 

For these reasons, we made the decision to shift to e-learning Friday, Jan. 21. 

All afterschool activities and sports are canceled for Jan. 21. We will make a decision about sports and extracurricular activities for Saturday (Jan. 22) by Friday afternoon. We will communicate that decision tomorrow. 

Here is what our students need to do. Around 8:30 Friday morning, check your learning management system and/or your district email for assignments and directions from your teacher(s). Families may also want to check their email in case your student’s teacher emails you with directions. 

Students will have five school days to complete all assignments to be counted present.

Thank you for your patience as we navigate this weather situation. As always, the safety of our students and staff is our top priority.
