LCHS transitioning to remote learning for two weeks

It was announced yesterday that Lauderdale County High School would be transitioning to remote learning for all grades (PreK-12), effective for two weeks beginning today (Friday, November 13).

LCHS students are expected to return to in-person learning on Monday, November 30.

Lauderdale County School System Superintendent Jon Hatton said the move, which is only applicable to LCHS, is due to several teachers and students being quarantined as a result of Covid-19 protocols.

LCHS faculty and staff members who are not in quarantine will report to school as usual.

During this remote learning and quarantine period, any students or staff members who test positive are asked to notify the LCHS administration or school nurse.

Free meals are continuing to be distributed to students in the district on Wednesdays. For LCHS, the Wednesday meal pick-ups (11:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.) will continue during the two-week remote learning period.

A statement from the school system noted: “The ongoing safety concerns for our students and staff members require us to be flexible and diligent in making decisions such as this one to go with remote learning temporarily at any school.”

In a statement posted to the school’s official Facebook page, Principal Casey Tate stated, “As we have said from August, we will continue to exhibit patience, flexibility, and grace. And we will make it through these times with everyone working together.”
