Extended Learning Plan

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 districtโ€™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.
