Good afternoon LCSD! This is a reminder email, that the Lee County School District has a “Mask Mandate” in place. I am encouraging everyone, staff, students, visitors, to wear a mask at all times on school property and at school-related functions. The COVID numbers in the state are skyrocketing, with over 14,000 positive cases in the state for one day total yesterday. Last week, the district had to go to online instruction, which has proven not to be the best way for our students. Thanks for your patience and serious attention to this matter. Supt. Murdock

Good morning LCSD Parents! If your child is in grades 3-12, they should be logged onto the "Google Classroom" platform. If your child is grades K-2, they should be completing "AMI" lessons daily. If your child does not log in, and complete the number of minutes assigned, they will be counted "absent" for the day. Students should be prepared to log in each day, no later than 8:05 am. School is in session for virtual learning for the remainder of the week. Our students are very much aware of the expectations, please support us as we try to make sure that they are still receiving instruction in this format. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact your child's school and/or teacher(s). Have a great day! Supt. Murdock

Good afternoon LCSD Staff! This message is being sent out to you For further clarification purposes: ALL staff should report to work onsite unless you are ill. Those who have been placed under isolation, if you feel up to it, can teach remotely, so that your personal illness days will not be counted against you. K-2 staff is also required to report to work, even though your students are completing AMI packets at home. Thanks for all that you do. Supt. Murdock

Good afternoon LCSD! Because we have a number of school staff out due to COVID-related illness, we have made the decision to conduct remote learning for the rest of this week. Starting tomorrow, Tuesday, January 11, 2022, students will receive instruction remotely, (at home) through Friday, January 14, 2022. Staff will be onsite to conduct virtual only classes for grades 3-12, and AMI packets will be completed at home for students K-2. The Whitten Pre-K program will be open tomorrow, but that is subject to change for the remainder of the week. Parents will be notified tomorrow concerning Preschool. The goal is to contain the COVID virus and prevent the rapid spread. Thanks for your patience. Have a great evening! Supt. Murdock

Good afternoon LCSD! Please review the following message concerning COVID: With the recent increases in COVID in the district, it is important that we all consider working together in order to prevent the spread. LCSD is currently NOT considering school closure for virtual instruction because of the virus; unless it gets to a point that we cannot have school safely. The CDC recommends that the best defense in preventing the COVID-19 virus or extreme COVID-19 related illness, is to get a vaccine. Vaccines are available for ages 5 and above. Boosters are also available for those 12 and above. The Lee County Cooperative Clinic (LCCC) and the local AR Health Department Unit (ADH) offers free testing in Marianna. COVID Vaccinations are strongly encouraged. We can make sure we follow the CDC's "3Ws" recommendations. Wear a mask, Wash your hands, and Watch your distance. The district staff is trying our best to keep schools and buses disinfected. Each of us will have to do our part to keep our schools open. Studies and evidence in regard to academic and social-emotional wellness has proven, that our students NEED to be in school. Please contact Ms. Joycelyn Brandon, LCSD's COVID-19 Point of Contact, in regards to reporting or any questions, 8702957103 or 8702951022. Thank you. Have a safe weekend! Supt. Murdock
