Lexington County School District One is making Wednesday, March 5, a full, regular school day for staff and students and canceling that day’s planned collaborative planning activities. All schools will dismiss at their normal times on Wednesday, March 5.
Lexington County School District One sets high expectations for every student. The district provides the environment, instruction and support needed to ensure that our students learn, and, as part of that, the district protects instructional time. The district feels that this decision is in the best interest of its teachers and students.
The district lost three instructional days due to bad weather (Wednesday, January 29, 2014, Wednesday, February 12, 2014, and Thursday, February 13, 2014). The district will make up two of those days on Friday, March 14 and Monday, April 21. It has not designated a third makeup day yet.
