Dear Lexington District One Family:
Today, the Governor announced that schools would remain closed throughout April of this year due to the COVID-19 coronavirus.
Parents, we know that this time is beyond challenging for you as you try to work from home and make sure that your children are cared for and doing their daily assignments. Thank you for believing in the importance of education and taking this leap of faith with us.
We know that teachers are holding class meetings through video conferencing with their own small children playing at their feet. Thank you for the innovation and creativity you are using to engage students and make them feel connected.
We know that our cafeteria workers, bus drivers, and Central Services volunteers are making sure that children have breakfast and lunch each day — when they might not eat otherwise. Thank you for your selflessness and commitment to our community.
We know that our continued success depends on how we work together and how we work to help each other through these difficult times.
Our instructional team is already working on a plan that will move us through the end of April. We plan to honor our Spring Break and leave it untouched. We sense that you may need a break beginning April 6.
I am sure that you will have lots of questions about what the future holds. I ask for your patience as we tackle this challenge together. We will be in touch with updates as information becomes available.
Thank you for all you do.
Together, we are ONE.
Dr. Greg Little, Superintendent
