At Lexington Elementary , we emphasize prevention education and encourage students to make healthy choices everyday. We will provide daily announcements to educate students on the meaning of celebrating Red Ribbon Week.

As you know, students missed another first semester school day on Thursday, Oct. 11th, due to Hurricane Michael.
We are not yet ready to announce when we will make up that day, and simply adding another day to the end of the second semester does not solve our first-semester students’ need for more instructional time.
In order to make sure our students do not miss any more instructional time, we will cancel the Collaborative Planning Day scheduled for Wednesday, Oct. 17th, and make it a full school day for students. By doing that, we will recover some instructional time.
Schools will dismiss at their normal time on Wednesday, Oct. 17th. There will be no early dismissal and no collaborative planning.
Please note that this change to Oct. 17th cannot serve as a makeup day — as it was already a scheduled school day.
Thanks for your patience.
Mary Beth Hill, Chief Communications Office

Parent-Teacher Conferences that were scheduled for Thursday, October 11th, will now be held Thursday, October 18th. Please check with your student’s teacher regarding this reschedule.
Due to having Thursday (Oct 11th) off for Hurricane Michael, we will be moving our Boosterthon Fun Run to FRIDAY, OCTOBER 19th, instead of that Thursday. This will allow students time for their daily pep rally and an extra day of fund raising.
The FUN RUN will be FRIDAY, OCTOBER 19th, from 8:00am – 11:00am.
Parents are welcome to come cheer on their students!
LEXINGTON, S.C. — Lexington County School District One is canceling school tomorrow, Thursday, October 11, 2018, for all students and staff in all attendance areas.
The safety of our students and staff drive our decision. Forecasters predict that Hurricane Michael will bring high wind gusts to our area on Thursday. School buses should not operate when sustained winds are at 30 miles per hour or greater or when frequent wind gusts exceed 40 miles per hour.
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 any further information about school closings or delays through SchoolMessenger, the district’s telephone calling system.
Parents can also get updates 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.
Boosterthon has begun at Lexington Elementary! This is our biggest and best fundraiser for our school! Our goal is $18,000, for school improvements. The PTA will use this money for school and student needs, as well as funding for family events throughout the year!
Our FUN RUN will be held Thursday, October 18th. Mark your calendars to come out and cheer on your student! It’s a lot of fun!
