School to Remain Closed Through April

March 24, 2020

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

Lexington District One Offers Food Program for Children

NEWS RELEASE — FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Tuesday, March 17, 2020
Lexington District One offers food program for children

LEXINGTON, S.C. — Starting tomorrow, Wednesday, March 18, 2020, Lexington County School District One will offer a free food program for children 18 years old and younger.

The program, federally funded by the United States Department of Agriculture and administered through the South Carolina Department of Education and Lexington County School District One, provides and serves meals to children regardless of race, color, national origin, sex, age or disability.

The program runs Monday through Friday throughout the district’s closure due to COVID-19.

Since all food is “grab and go,” the plan to feed students allows parents to drive into the student drop-off area of any one of the school food sites from 11 a.m. through 1 p.m. No food will be consumed on-site.

At that time, children age 18 and younger will receive a bag containing lunch and the next day’s breakfast. Those children, however, must be present in the vehicle at the time of pick up.

The district appreciates the outpouring of support and offers of volunteers to help with the meals. We believe it best, however, to follow CDC guidelines and eliminate groups of people gathering for any reason.

As we were all concerned about the children who depend on school meals each day, our Food Service and Nutrition staff is excited to be able to offer this program.

The following locations will serve as food program “grab and go” sites:

1.    Carolina Springs Middle School, 6180 Platt Springs Road, Lexington, SC 29073;
2.    Forts Pond Elementary School, 7350 Fish Hatchery Road, Pelion, SC 29123;
3.    Gilbert Primary School, 520 Main Street, Gilbert, SC 29054;
4.    Oak Grove Elementary School, 479 Oak Drive, Lexington, SC 29073 (pending approval);
5.    Red Bank Elementary School, 246 Community Drive, Lexington, SC 29073;
6.    Rosenwald Community Learning Center, 420 Hendrix Street, Lexington, SC 29072; and
7.    White Knoll Elementary School, 132 White Knoll Way, West Columbia, SC 29170.

 NOTE — The district is also developing a plan to get food out to certain areas. Once that plan is complete, we will notify you of those locations.
