VIRTUAL SCHOOL AND MEAL DELIVERY PLAN
Lee County School District (LCSD) officials continue to closely monitor the spread of the novel coronavirus 2019 (COVID-19) as part of the state of South Carolina’s effort to mitigate residents’ exposure. LCSD administrators have created a District Emergency Distance Learning Plan and a Food and Nutrition Delivery Plan in response to Gov. Henry McMaster’s closure of all public schools through March 31.
“I think we have plans that will address the needs of our students and their families,” says Dr. Wanda Andrews, LCSD Superintendent. “I am grateful for the guidance from the State and the LCSD Board of Trustees as well as the commitment on the part of staff members to continue to create a learning environment where students come first.”
The District Emergency Distance Learning Plan calls for the facilitation of virtual classroom lessons, accessible on your child’s school website. Moreover, hard copies of the student’s assignments have also been mailed to the home. Students and parents may access the Lee County Emergency Closure Student Assignments Page through the link: http://bit.ly/lcsdemrgwk. On this page, students and parents can view all assignments for teachers across Lee County School District. In addition, teacher contact numbers are provided for students and parents to communicate with faculty and staff members during this emergency closure period. Teachers are also expected to maintain virtual office hours between 8:30 a.m. – 11:00 a.m., which means that students will have access to their teachers to clarify questions or seek assistance.
Parents of elementary school students who require use of a Chromebook or parents of middle and high school students whose Chromebooks are in need of repair, please contact the principal at the child's school.
In addition, Lee County School District’s meal delivery schedule will change from the current three days per week to once per week beginning Monday, April 6, 2020. Each student will be given a package containing enough food items for five breakfast meals and five lunches. This meal distribution schedule will continue throughout the mandated school closure period. We will also provide meals on Monday, April 13, 2020, which is the first day of our Spring Break.
Buses will run their regular bus routes for the deliveries which should begin at 8:30 a.m. and continue until they have completed their routes. Students and /or parents are encouraged to stand at their bus stops to receive their packages each Monday morning.
