Be Kind, Work Hard, Be Brave
Note From Principal Graham
Thank you all for your adaptability as we transitioned to an e-learning day Friday based on the weather. I was able to visit a few classrooms and it was great to see the students engaging in online learning. The teachers enjoyed connecting with the students even though we are not in the school building.
We hope everyone stays safe and we look forward to seeing you Monday!

Fall Fundraiser Update
And while we're incredibly grateful, we also have some GREAT news! Even though our set fundraising window has ended – it is still possible to support our organization through Charleston Wrap!
That's right! Now through the end of the season (December 2, 2022), you can continue shopping online using our unique Organization ID, and we will still reap the benefits! Not only is it incredibly easy to continue supporting our cause, but it also gives you a great opportunity to get more of the products you love or cross more off your holiday shopping list.
Thank you for your help!

When Do I Need My Driver's License?
Dear Lexington District One Families:
Lexington District One students and staff continue to learn, work and live with COVID-19 with minimal disruptions. Our schools are operating normally, and DHEC no longer requires close contacts to quarantine.
Please remember that students who are sick with COVID-19 or test positive must continue to isolate, meaning they must stay at home from school.
We recently updated the way to report your student’s COVID-19 positive test results for the 2022–23 school year.
All student reports of a positive COVID-19 test result will be completed through the COVID-19 report form found in PowerSchool Parent Portal. The previous Google form link is no longer accepting responses.
After logging on to Parent Portal, select ‘Forms’ in the navigation bar, then fill out and submit the “COVID-19 Reporting Form.” We will then email you further information on when your student may return to school and school-sponsored events.
