Today we have reviewed all attendance numbers for staff and students. Due to the absenteeism and its continued increased trajectory, we have requested an emergency Covid waiver from the state for all schools for Thursday and Friday.
This means Lincoln County Schools will be closed Thursday and Friday (Jan 20 & 21). If the Commissioner approves the waiver we will not have to use our stockpile days. If she does not, we will have to use them for these two days. We plan to re-open for regular hours on monday 1/24/22.
Due to this being an emergency Covid waiver, ALL extra-curricular activities for Thursday and Friday must be canceled, including practices. We have also decided that Jr Pro is canceled for Saturday. Other extra-curricular activities Saturday may proceed given your principal's approval.
All Lincoln County School buildings will be closed as well as the central office.
Please take the steps necessary to protect yourself and remain healthy.
Dr. Bill Heath, Director of Schools
