Return to 5-Day Face-to-Face Instruction

December 1, 2020 

To Our Lexington Two Families: 

On Wednesday, December 2, Lexington Two will bring back all remaining elementary, middle and high school students who are not enrolled in our full-time Lexington Two Virtual Academy for five-day face-to-face instruction, following last month’s successful return of select student groups for classes five days a week. 

We remain vigilant in efforts to protect students and employees as we move to this next phase of in-person instruction. Lexington Two has instituted a number of measures for a safe and healthy learning environment amid COVID-19. Among them: 

  • Masks are required for students, staff and visitors on district property, on district transportation, and while attending school-related activities. ● Signs and stickers are posted to outline social distancing and other requirements.
  • The district is installing up to 6,000 additional desktop dividers for student desks, to supplement social distancing to the greatest extent possible within classrooms.
  • Thorough cleaning/disinfecting of classrooms, restrooms, cafeterias, hallways, and other school spaces is completed prior to the arrival of students and again with the departure of faculty and administrators at the end of each school day. Misting machines are used in each school and on buses for disinfecting.
  • Wipe-downs are done throughout the school day of high-touch areas such as door knobs, sink handles, paper towel dispensers, light switches, cafeteria tables and commonly used equipment.
  • Disinfectant products are available in classrooms so that high-touch items and surfaces can be cleaned frequently.
  • Hand sanitizer dispensers are placed throughout schools.
  • Cleaning/disinfecting of playground equipment is done after each recess schedule, with athletic equipment cleaned and disinfected daily.
  • Socially distanced hallway movement is employed, with teachers changing classrooms whenever possible rather than students.
  • Reduced capacity and social distancing are used in cafeterias, and free pre-packaged meals are offered to all students.
  • Only essential visitors are allowed inside schools, beyond the front office, and they must wear masks.

  • Deadline is Dec. 11 to request instructional changes: Families have the option to request a change to their child's instructional model by sending an email request to V[email protected]. Requests must be received by Friday, December 11. This will be the final time this school year that we will accept change requests. A request does not guarantee placement in an instructional model, and requests will only be considered on a space-available basis. An instructional change, if granted, would be effective January 4 for elementary and middle school students, February 4 for high school students.

We will continue to monitor COVID-19 cases in our community and will make adjustments as needed.
