School Closed Thursday, September 5th

In an abundance of caution, Lexington County School District One is canceling school tomorrow, Thursday, September 5, 2019.

Expected wind gusts of over 30 miles per hour throughout the afternoon Thursday could create conditions that would be unsafe for school buses, student drivers, parents and staff. As always, their safety is our highest priority.

These closings apply to all schools, students and staff in all Lexington District One attendance areas. The district also cancels all daytime and evening meetings and events scheduled to take place at any Lexington District One school, performing arts center, field or facility. This includes all district programs, athletic practices or events, adult education classes, school or district-related meetings, events, or extra-curricular activities scheduled for tomorrow.

District officials will send parents, staff and students more information as we get it through the district’s telephone calling system.

Parents can also get updates and information about school openings and closings by following the district on Facebook or Twitter, checking the district’s website at www.lexington1.net, calling the district’s 24-hour recorded telephone message center at 803-821-1299, watching local television stations, listening to local radio stations or going to media websites.
