Lexington School Community,

We are now less than two weeks away from welcoming our students back into our schools. The teachers and staff have been preparing for the upcoming year by engaging in professional development and preparing their classrooms for students. We are excited to see our students return. The Lexington Digital Academy is also preparing for students and is looking forward to supporting on-line learning this school year.

2020-2021 Back to School Plan

Above is a link to our district Back-to-School plan with adjusted language regarding mask breaks. Per the direction of Richland Public Health and the current Mask Order from the State of Ohio, mask breaks will be given when deemed necessary by the teacher and will not exceed 10 minutes while maintaining proper social distancing. Other times mask breaks may occur during the day are when students are taken outside for class, recess, physical education class, choir, band, lunch, and when a student is alone. Please remember to have your student wear a facial covering when boarding the bus. All students will receive a facial covering acknowledgment form on the first day of school, but anyone who wishes to fill one out now can do so utilizing the link below:

https://forms.gle/c4byKdzDY2wW2SQi9

For those of you who have been to the high school recently, you will notice that the Building Project for our new 7-12 building has begun with the demolition of the baseball and softball fields and the preparation for site excavation. This will be an exciting backdrop to our year and we will look forward to updating you on the progress. Thank you again for your supporting the future of our
district.

Please know that we understand the nervousness, angst and/or frustration that returning to school, and living in this time of COVID-19 creates. We feel it, too. Together as a school community we can support each other, and keep each other safe by adhering to the current guidelines. It is the hope of the entire Lexington School Community to have a productive, safe and enjoyable year. We appreciate the support of our parents and community, and know that we can make this year a success.

Thank you for your continued support.

Lexington Local School District 2020-2021 Back to School Plan

Lexington School Community,
 
Last night the board approved our Back-to-School Plan for the 2020-2021 school year. The plan can be found by clicking on the link above. I sincerely thank the staff, teachers and administrators who worked together to create a plan to bring our students back safely, as well as to provide a quality online option for students. Our buildings will be releasing digital orientations, that will be based upon our district plan, and will outline the policies and procedures of each of our five unique buildings. Those will be released the week of August 31st. Our principals and counselors are working tirelessly to redo and finalize student schedules now that we know how many students will not be returning to our buildings. For our Junior High and High School students, schedules will be made available September 1st via ProgressBook. Thank you for your continued support of the Lexington Local Schools and despite whatever challenges we may face, we are looking forward to another great school year.
 
Jeremy Secrist
Attached in the link above is a letter sent to all Richland County schools describing how the Richland Public Health Department will handle an exposure to COVID-19 in a school setting and/or a positive test by a member of our school community. Please take the time to read the letter carefully.
 
Thank you.

RC COVID 19 REOPENING GUIDANCE FALL 2020
COVID-19 Reopening Guidance

Good afternoon,
 
The Richland County Reopening Framework that I have previously referenced is attached in the link above. This framework was created through cooperation with all the county public schools and the Richland Department of Public Health. I want to stress that this framework will be used to assist Lexington, and the district task force, in creating the protocols and procedures for the 2020-2021 school year. As you will read, there are opportunities for local decisions on some issues/procedures within the document, and each district will make decisions that will result in some variances between districts in effort to best serve each community.
 
Thank you again for your patience, support and input. I will be communicating again soon to try to address some of the questions that have already been asked, as well as continuing to keep you updated and seek input as we work through this process together. I appreciate all of you and your thoughts. Stay well.

Best advice is if you approach, from either direction, a school bus stopped on or along the road, for any reason, with or without its lights flashing STOP.

We must all do our part of keep our precious children safe on their way to and from school each day. No one should be in such a hurry to jeopardize children's safety.
