Lexington Elementary School

Global Minds with Caring Hearts.

  • Elementary School (K-5) 

    At Lexington Elementary School, all students are given opportunities to practice leadership in a global context. Though the school is the center of learning, everyone - parents, teachers, administrators, and the community - take responsibility for the success of all students.

  • WELCOME to LEXINGTON ELEMENTARY SCHOOL!

    As we come together in our pursuit of excellence, I am filled with wonder and excitement.  The Lexington One School District is dedicated to providing high quality educational opportunities, as well as service to the community.  We endeavor to prepare students for lifelong learning and leadership roles.  Our vision is to Empower each Child to Design the Future.  At Lexington Elementary we employ innovative delivery systems, inquiry based teaching, and rich learning experiences. 

    It is our goal to establish a community of learners that exemplify the International Baccalaureate Philosophy.  The IB traits enable our students to function successfully in our Wildcat community.  As a Wildcat community member, it is critical that students respect themselves, their peers and the staff. 

    It is important that our school be a place that is safe, friendly, and productive.  Our community of learners will only thrive in an atmosphere where students can prepare for life after high school while making memories that will be treasured long after the school bell have stopped ringing.

    I hope you understand the expectations for learning and behavior will be high and that it will enable our students to be more successful academically.  With your help, Lexington Elementary School will engender feelings of pride in our community.  Let’s have a great transition into the future.

    Educationally Yours,
    Dr. Timothy Carnahan

    Attendance Guidance for Parents

    Attendance Guidelines — Students Enrolled in the Face-to-Face AA BB Hybrid Model

    While enrolled in the face-to-face AA BB hybrid model, students are expected to report to school on their assigned days. On virtual, e-learning days, they are expected to participate in all virtual learning activities and submit their assignments by the due date established by their teacher.

    Their attendance will be recorded as follows.

    Elementary Students (on face-to-face days): Teachers will take attendance daily.

    Elementary Students (on virtual, e-learning days): Students will be marked present for all virtual e-learning days. If no assigned work is submitted by the due date established by the teacher, the student’s attendance will be changed to absent (for the corresponding days). 

    Secondary Students (on face-to-face days): Teachers will take attendance each class period.

    Secondary Students (on virtual days, e-learning days): Students will be marked present in each class period for all virtual, e-learning days. If no assigned work for a class is submitted by the due date established by the teacher, the student’s attendance will be changed to absent in that class (for the corresponding days).

    Additional Attendance Information

    Schools will continue to accept parent notes and excuses to document absence reasons (for both face-to-face and virtual, e-learning days). Schools can accept these excuses electronically.

    If your child is experiencing symptoms associated with COVID-19, please keep your child at home AND contact your child’s school nurse immediately. Absences associated with COVID-19 will be coded as SC-FLU with a descriptor of COVID-19. This is an excused absence.

    This code is used for the student who has/is suspected to have COVID-19. It is not used for a student who has been quarantined due to close contact with a person who has been diagnosed with COVID-19.

    Students Required to Quarantine

    Students may be required to quarantine if they are in close contact with someone with a confirmed case of COVID-19. Your child’s school will contact you if an exposure has occurred at school.

    If close contact has occurred outside of school, please keep your child at home AND contact your child’s school nurse immediately. Students will work virtually and be marked present for all days they are in quarantine. If no assigned work is submitted by the due date established by the teacher, the student’s attendance will be changed to absent (for the corresponding days).
