Updated Calendar

During the special called Lee County Board of Education meeting on August 3, the Board established an updated school calendar. This calendar will have students start on August 24. There is still a choice for parents of in-person classes or virtual classes, and most parents have responded to our survey letting us know which choice they prefer. If there are still parents who have not communicated that with us, please call the schools or the central office and speak to Mr. Phillip Angel.

If the governor asks schools to hold off in-person classes past the 24th of August, we will start school all virtual on this date. We will be establishing dates and times soon for parents to complete needed paperwork for the 2020-2021 school year and to get the devices to families who requested them in the survey. When this process is set up, we will send a phone call out to all parents as well as post more information on our district webpage and Facebook page.

Updated School Calendar

Attached is the updated school calendar for the 20-21 school year with a new student start date of August 12. This will be the first day for students whether they select in person classes or our virtual program. We will continually monitor the cases of COVID-19 in our area to determine if this is still the best start date, but it is the belief of our district leadership based on health department guidance that starting early will give us more days of in person instruction available prior to possibly having to go into a virtual environment on a more regular basis depending on the trend of the virus.

We appreciate those families who have already submitted your survey regarding your selection for in-person or virtual curriculum for the upcoming year. If you have still not sent your survey to us, please try to get it in the mail by tomorrow, Thursday July 16, so we can best prepare for the upcoming year. We know that what you select now on the survey may change as the situation with the virus changes, but if we know what you want to do as of now we can make better plans to serve your children.

Thank you all for working with us to help us make the best decisions possible for the upcoming school year.

P-EBT Food Benefit Program for Public School Students

Students who receive free or reduced price lunch are eligible to receive an additional benefit of $313.50 due to COVID-19 for households to spend on food at home for students.

If your child is currently enrolled in SNAP benefits, you do not need to do anything. These funds will automatically be added to the P-EBT Card.

If your child is receiving Medicaid or KTAP benefits based on income levels below the NSLP income guidelines, or if a child is in foster care, a P-EBT card will be mailed to you with instructions and you don't need to do anything to apply.

According to information we have received at this time, all other students in the Lee County Schools may apply for this benefit because we participate in the CEP program and all students here qualify for free lunch. Please see the attached flier for information on how to apply.

You will need your child's state issued school identification number. This number is the same number students use to log in to Infinite Campus to access their grades and attendance information. If you do not know this number, you may call 606-464-5000 and ask to speak to Sherry Profitt. Please call next week Tuesday - Friday from 8:00-12:00 and 12:30-3:30.

You will need to be able to provide information that identifies you as a child's guardian before you can receive this information. Please have the child's birthdate and social security number available to tell Ms. Profitt when you call. If the information does not match what we have in Infinite Campus you will need to come by our office and show identification to prove guardianship.

School lunches are once again being taken to pick up points throughout the county. The attached picture shows the locations and pick up times and these are also still on our webpage. If you need a lunch and have not been coming to get one please call us in the morning and we will make sure we have enough. Also, if you have been coming to get lunches but no longer plan to come, let us know so we can reduce our numbers. We can feed any child age 18 and under in the county.

There have been many questions about our end of the year activities such as prom, graduation, and promotion ceremonies. At this time, the only thing we know for sure is that we will not be able to have prom on May 2nd as originally planned. If students have ordered tuxedos or other items for the prom it would be best to try now to cancel those things. If there is any chance for us to hold a prom or special dance later in the year, even after school is officially out, we want to do this for our kids. But until the spread of this disease is under control we can’t make any plans or set any new date. Additionally, we had moved the senior trip to New York up to July, but we are going to be working on cancelling that trip as well. With the affect this virus is having on New York right now, we don’t feel comfortable that going in July will be safe for our kids and staff. We will see what recommendations come from the governor’s office at the end of April and May and see if we can plan any other type activity for our seniors.

Regarding end of the year promotion ceremonies and graduation, we don’t have an answer at this time. We know these ceremonies are important to our students and we are hoping that time will give us what we need to be able to have some kind of ceremony. For our senior class, this is especially hard as we know they will move on to other adventures in their lives. Our goal now is to plan to create a virtual ceremony of some type and be ready if this is our only option, but we also will have hope that we can have a ceremony at a later date. If seniors and their families have suggestions or input they would like to give, please reach out to Ms. Smith, Mr. Angel, Mr. Stickler, or Ms. Wasson through e-mail or give us a call. We miss our students very much and want everyone to know that these are tough times and decisions for all of us, but as Governor Beshear says, we will get through this together. The number one goal is to keep everyone healthy and come out of this stronger and closer in spirit than ever before.
