The Senior Parking Lot and the Staff Parking Lot behind the school will be closed for several weeks due to a phase of construction of the new facility. Beginning October 24th and running through November 13th, these two parking lots will be closed. Seniors will need to park across the street in the student lot and staff will need to park in the band parking lot.

Morning drop-off location will be the new gym lobby entrance and after school pick-up will be in the student parking lot across Clever Lane at the end of the day.

In addition, Clever Lane will be closed to through traffic on Saturday, October 24 and will not be accessible from Route 42 (by the carwash). Clever Lane will only be accessible from Frederick Street on Monday, October 26th.

We apologize for any inconvenience, but the construction company will need time to work in these areas safely as they proceed with the new building project.

Please see the map for student parking, drop off, and pick up beginning Monday, October 26th through Friday, November 13th.

Lexington School Community,

We are now less than two weeks away from welcoming our students back into our schools. The teachers and staff have been preparing for the upcoming year by engaging in professional development and preparing their classrooms for students. We are excited to see our students return. The Lexington Digital Academy is also preparing for students and is looking forward to supporting on-line learning this school year.

2020-2021 Back to School Plan

Above is a link to our district Back-to-School plan with adjusted language regarding mask breaks. Per the direction of Richland Public Health and the current Mask Order from the State of Ohio, mask breaks will be given when deemed necessary by the teacher and will not exceed 10 minutes while maintaining proper social distancing. Other times mask breaks may occur during the day are when students are taken outside for class, recess, physical education class, choir, band, lunch, and when a student is alone. Please remember to have your student wear a facial covering when boarding the bus. All students will receive a facial covering acknowledgment form on the first day of school, but anyone who wishes to fill one out now can do so utilizing the link below:

For those of you who have been to the high school recently, you will notice that the Building Project for our new 7-12 building has begun with the demolition of the baseball and softball fields and the preparation for site excavation. This will be an exciting backdrop to our year and we will look forward to updating you on the progress. Thank you again for your supporting the future of our
district.

Please know that we understand the nervousness, angst and/or frustration that returning to school, and living in this time of COVID-19 creates. We feel it, too. Together as a school community we can support each other, and keep each other safe by adhering to the current guidelines. It is the hope of the entire Lexington School Community to have a productive, safe and enjoyable year. We appreciate the support of our parents and community, and know that we can make this year a success.

Thank you for your continued support.

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.
