Lexington School Community,

As we continue to move forward toward the completion of our new 7-12 building project, we would like to invite you to tour the current high school and junior high one last time. Demolition for the existing high school is scheduled for the beginning of June, and the demolition of the existing junior high is scheduled for fall.

Both the high school and junior high will be open for tours after school ends for students and staff. Each building will host guests from 9:00 am – 12:00 pm, and again from 5:00 pm – 8:00 pm on Tuesday, May 24th, Wednesday, May 25th, Friday, May 27th, and Tuesday May 31st. Please note, the buildings will be closed to tours Thursday, May 26th due to the Regional Track Meet, and on Monday, May 30th in observance of Memorial Day.

The community is welcome to tour the halls and classrooms of both buildings at their own pace. However, staff and/or students may be available some days for brief guided tours, as well.

Thank you for your support of this building project, and for helping to shape the future of this great district.

Sincerely,

Jeremy Secrist 
Superintendent

Lexington Local School District is excited to offer a free Science camp for our students that have completed Kindergarten through Grade 6.  Students become scientists as they participate in hands-on science experiments, explore science concepts in a new way, and work in a creative environment that ignites a curiosity for all things science.  We will also include reading, writing, and mathematics in our science investigations and experiments. We hope to see you there!

Lexington School Family,

Below you will see the board adopted school calendar for the 2022-2023 school year. To allow ample time to finish the demolition of our existing high school, and to get fully moved into our new 7-12 building, the district will be starting and ending earlier than we typically do next school year, and starting and ending later in the 2022-2023 school year. This will provide the necessary time in the summer of 2022 to accomplish all that will be required for our students to begin learning in the new facility that our community has supported, and has been anxiously awaiting.

Thank you for your continued support of Lexington Schools, and for being an integral part of the district’s future. Our students for generations to come will benefit from your support, and our new facility.

Sincerely,

Jeremy Secrist
Superintendent

Return to In-Person Instruction and Continuity of Services Plan

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.
