September 22, 2017
Dear Lexington One Families:
As you know, all Lexington County School District One schools closed on Monday, September 11, 2017, due to Hurricane Irma.
By law (Section 59-1-425 of the South Carolina Code of Laws), districts are required to include at least three severe weather make-up days in each year’s academic school calendar. The district included those three days in this year’s academic calendar.
The district will make up the missed school day by using Monday, Feb. 19, 2018, the first severe weather makeup day on your 2017–2018 academic calendar.
We hope that by letting you know early that there will be school on Feb. 19, you have time to adjust any plans that you may have already made for that day.
Thank you for all you do for your children every day.
Mary Beth Hill
Chief Communications Officer
Lexington County School District One

As a precaution, Lexington County School District One will delay the opening of school Tuesday, September 12, 2017, by two hours for all staff and students in 4-yearold full-day kindergarten classes and 5-year-old kindergarten through grade 12 classes in all attendance areas. Child development classes for 3-year-olds and 4-year-old half-day kindergarten classes will not meet.
In making this decision, district administrators closely collaborated with Lexington County Emergency Management Services who have, in turn, consulted with the National Weather Service, Highway Patrol and many other agencies. #Irma
