    Good afternoon, GES families, this is Mr. Branham with a special message. I trust that everyone is staying safe and well in these trying times.  

    Our school, like all across the state, remains closed to the public through April 30, 2020. If you need help during our school closure, please call 803-821-1601. This telephone number will be checked from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. — Monday through Friday. If, when you call, you receive a recording during those hours, we are currently on the line with someone else or unavailable.

    Spring Break holidays for Lexington One is from Monday, April 6 – Friday, April 10. Monday, April 13 is a weather make up day. Since we have not had a weather event this Spring, Monday, April 13 is a student and staff holiday, as well. Our faculty & staff will also observe these dates of leave and will be unavailable to be reached by phone, email, etc., from Monday, April 6 – Monday, April 13. School office hours and distance learning for students will begin again on Tuesday, April 14.

    Please continue to set aside a time each school day to ensure your child completes that day's recommended activities. If you have any questions or if an activity is confusing to you, just contact your child's teacher through email and they’ll be happy to help.

    Thank you for your support and understanding during these uncertain times. We miss all of our students and families, and look forward to the day we are all back together as one big GES family! Have a great week.
