    Update from Lee County Schools 03/27/2020

    As you may know, Governor Kay Ivey announced on Thursday afternoon that all Alabama public schools will be closed for the remainder of this academic school year. This is an unprecedented, unique situation, and we respect her decision.  First, and foremost, the safety, health, and well-being of all people remains paramount. Please continue to adhere to social distancing and good hygiene habits.

    Even though the school buildings will be closed, that does not mean that teaching and learning will cease.  Lee County Schools remains committed to providing quality instruction in the best manner possible. We have a plan to resume instruction, continue communication, and carry on with serving our students.  More specific details will be forthcoming from your school leadership in the coming days. We are working diligently to finalize the instructional plans with guidance from the Alabama State Department of Education and look forward to presenting to all students continued learning opportunities beginning April 6, 2020.  Our plan will consist of various resources including online instruction and correspondence packages.

    Food Assistance Provided by the Hudson Family Foundation

    An unfortunate side effect of canceling classes due to the pending public health crisis is that some of our food-insecure families lose out on the school lunches that help provide the nourishment students need. In an effort to help with this, there are some organizations offering assistance to those families in need. The Hudson Family Foundation (@HudsonFamilyFdn) has coordinated with Philadelphia Baptist Church in Smiths Station to provide Emergency Food Assistance to Lee County Families who need it. Food will be distributed on Monday, March 23rd. Please follow this link to sign up to receive help if you need it http://bit.ly/3b9fsTp 

    We are also expecting an announcement from Lee County EMA with more Food Assistance and those details will be posted as soon as we get them. Thank you and stay safe.
