Lexington 1 Announces Plans to Return to a 5-day Schedule

Dear Parents/Guardians of High School Students:

As you know, the district’s reentry plan has been focused on taking deliberate, purposeful steps. We are committed to minimizing student and staff exposure in order to keep them safe and, as a result, keep you and your families safe.

Middle school students in the face-to-face model return to five days a week instruction on the Monday after Spring Break, Monday, April 12.

Because of the steps we have taken and our current data, we now also believe that we can shift our high school students who come to school for face-to-face instruction from four to five days each week.

This shift of high school students to five days of face-to-face instruction takes place a week after the middle school shift on Monday, April 19. The school day will continue to begin at 8:30 a.m. and end at 3:20 p.m.

This shift eliminates the Friday e-learning day each week for face-to-face students. For students in the Online Learning Academy (LOOLA), Fridays will remain the same and instruction will continue to look like Monday through Thursday.

Please help us make this move to five days successful by reinforcing with your student(s) the importance of:

  • wearing a mask while on a school bus and campus.
  • practicing good hygiene (wash/sanitize hands often, cover coughs/sneezes with inside of elbow or tissue, etc.).
  • practicing physical-distancing measures in classrooms and common areas.
  • following school officials’ directions regarding health and safety.
  • letting their teacher or another staff member know immediately if they don’t feel well or think they may have any of the following symptoms: cough, shortness of breath or difficulty breathing, fever, chills, muscle pain, sore throat, loss of taste or smell, congestion or runny nose, nausea, vomiting, or diarrhea.

We look forward to regaining a bit more normalcy as we welcome our high school students back five days a week on Monday, April 19.

Remember — We are Stronger Together.

Dr. Greg Little, Superintendent
