Friday, Sept. 30 shifts to e-learning day

Dear Lexington District One Families:

All Lexington District One schools will shift to e-learning on Friday, Sept. 30, as potentially severe weather is predicted in our area because of Hurricane Ian. That means the school buildings and offices will close Friday, with teachers assigning both virtual instruction and/or take-home lessons. 

We realize that power outages are possible, so students will have five school days to complete all assignments to be counted present. 

The National Weather Service predicts strong winds and heavy rains which could be dangerous for our buses and drivers. 

All afterschool activities and sports are canceled for Friday through Sunday (Sept. 30 – Oct. 2). All campuses will be closed for the weekend. 

The SAT, which was scheduled for Saturday (Oct. 1) at Lexington High and Gilbert High, is also canceled. Students may contact College Board Test Administration Services regarding refunds or rescheduling.

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

Also, make sure you and your family have a weather safety plan in place in the event you would need it. As always, the safety of our students and staff is our top priority.
