With the second semester of the 2020-21 school year under way, the safety of students and employees continues to be our priority amid the COVID-19 pandemic. Our return from winter break started with a temporary period of remote learning. This decision was made out of an abundance of caution, as we expect increases in positive staff and student cases, mirroring what we saw after the Thanksgiving break. The district does not make decisions about shifts in instruction lightly. We have heard from stakeholders on both sides of the issue, from those who believe Lexington Two should remain fully virtual to those who say we should be in-person five days a week. Our goal, however, remains five-day in-person instruction, in the safest environment possible, supported by data and guidance from a number of internal, local and state resources.
In the meantime, please stay updated on the latest COVID-19 updates from the district with the Lex 2.0 link on our district website, featuring communications, resources and more.
We also invite you to join our monthly Virtual Community Engagement Sessions. You'll find information here about upcoming times and dates, submitting questions, and the link to join the event.
Thank you for your support as we navigate these unprecedented times.
