Due to the ongoing challenges associated with COVID-19 and the high numbers of quarantines for students and staff, the optional eLearning Day that was originally scheduled for Wednesday, October 6, 2021 is being rescheduled to a regular, full day for all students in K4-12th grade. Information about future eLearning Days will be provided each month as we continue to monitor the health and safety of students and staff. We appreciate the support and understanding of our Panther families as we navigate the changing impact of COVID-19 on our daily routines both at school and home.

Lexington County School District Three's schools and facilities will resume their regular schedules on Thursday, September 9th. Thank you for your patience and understanding today as we navigated unusual circumstances due to the water supply issue in the Town of Batesburg-Leesville.
It appears that the water supply problems in the Town of B-L are not going to resolve themselves as soon as we had hoped, so we will be dismissing students early today (September 8th). We will follow our normal car rider and bus rider procedures with students dismissing at the following times: B-L Primary School students will dismiss at 9:00 am B-L Elementary School students will dismiss at 9:15 am. B-L Middle School students will dismiss at 9:30 am. Please note that the rest of this school day will be an E-Learning Day. Students in K4 will have paper assignment packets sent home with them. Students in grades Kindergarten through 8th grade can access their assignments in Google Classroom via their Chromebook. At B-L High School, there will not be any live virtual classes today. Instead, students in grades 9th through 12th can find their assignments in Google Classroom as well.
Lexington Three is aware of major water supply issues affecting the Town of Batesburg-Leesville. Due to the timing of this advisory, Lexington Three is planning to open schools at their regular times today and we will attempt to hold a normal school day as we're told water could be restored soon. However, if water is not able to be restored, we may have to have an early dismissal day. Parents/Guardians should stay tuned for additional messaging that would be forthcoming should an early dismissal need to occur. Thank you for working with us.
Don't forget that Monday, September 6th is a holiday for all staff and students in Lexington Three as the district observes Labor Day. Enjoy the long weekend!
