Dear Guardians:

As many of you know, Lexington Local Schools is currently on a bus driver shortage for the 2021-22 school year. The transportation department would like to share the current plan, if your child’s bus driver is unavailable and no other substitutes are available to drive their route, on a specific morning or afternoon.

You will receive a text alert from the school informing parents that their child will be late getting to school and/or coming home. If you have not signed-up for the district text alerts, please find it on our website under the “parents and students” tab.

The first available bus driver that completes their route will go back out to finish the route for the driver that was unavailable that day. Unfortunately, this will take some time and your child will be either late coming to school or late being dropped off after school. We will work as quickly and safely as possible to transport your child to and from school.

If you would rather pick up your child or drop them off to school that day, that is certainly an option to ensure they are not late. However, we ask that you contact your building’s main office to communicate that decision.

Please contact the bus garage if you would be interested in becoming a substitute bus driver at 419-884-2349. Free training would be available for those who qualify.

Thank you for entrusting us to transport your child every day.

Sincerely,

Brenda Welsh
Transportation Director

Lexington School Community,

As you have undoubtedly heard, or read, the Lexington Local School Board voted at Wednesday night’s board meeting to institute a mask requirement for all faculty, staff, students and visitors in indoor environments beginning September 20th, upon returning to in-person learning. Due to the number of positive cases, which in 3 weeks approached our total for the entire 2020-2021 school year, and our lack of staff to properly run our district, we were forced to move to remote learning these last two weeks.

It is abundantly clear to all of us (parents, students, staff and administration) that remote learning is not what is best for our students. Our number one priority is, and must be, providing our students the best inperson learning experience we possibly can. To do this, we must ensure the health and safety of our students and staff.

Each and every decision district leaders and board of education members have made since the onset of the pandemic have been difficult. I ask that as a school community, we embrace differences of opinions and become examples of how to come together for a common cause, which in this case is one of the highest and greatest causes we have, the education of our children. Our job as educators is to teach our students in a safe environment. We believe these measures will help us do that successfully.

This decision to require facial coverings is to keep our school community safe and healthy. If your student(s) has a medical issue that facial coverings can make problematic, please see your physician, and/or provide the superintendent with documentation from a licensed physician for review, and to pursue other options. Again, our goal is to keep our students and staff healthy and safe, so learning can continue uninterrupted throughout this pandemic, and while the spread of COVID in our school community, village, county, and state are at such high levels.

Once again, thank you for entrusting us to educate your child. Stay safe and well, and we look forward to welcoming our students back into our buildings and classrooms on Monday, September 20th.

Sincerely,

Jeremy Secrist
Superintendent

Return to In-Person Instruction and Continuity of Services Plan

Lexington School Family,

Below you will see the board adopted school calendars for the 2021-2022 and 2022-2023 school years. 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

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.
