On Wednesday, Lexington Local Schools became the first Richland County district to announce a return to remote learning, for two weeks, from  Sept. 7-17.

“It is our hope that the two weeks of remote learning will allow staff, and students, time to recover from any illness so we may continue utilizing our great staff to provide in-person learning, safely transport your students and continue to offer breakfast and lunch,” Lexington Superintendent Jeremy Secrist posted on the district website.

“We are still asking families to help keep our schools healthy by allowing symptomatic students to stay home. We will work with families and students on make-up work.”
