Update on School Closings March 23, 2020

Good afternoon, Lexington City Schools families and staff -

This is Rebecca Walters, Division Superintendent for Lexington City Schools. This afternoon at 2:00, Governor Northam ordered all Virginia K-12 schools to close for the remainder of the 2019-2020 school year. While devastated by this news, I know that this is the best plan for the safety and health of our school community during this widespread health crisis.

Our school division leaders will be working to develop a plan to continue at-home learning experiences for all students taking direction from the Virginia Department of Education. We cannot thank our teachers, staff, and parents enough for your efforts in making sure learning and meals services continue for our children. Please look for announcements regarding our next steps soon.

In the meantime, we will continue to share resources for students and families, and we will continue our meals distribution at Lylburn Downing Middle School with updates to this schedule announced soon.

Please know that we are thinking of you, and miss our school families very much. Be sure to follow our Lexington City Schools Facebook Page and our division website for more information. Stay well, and stay in touch.
