  • LEC family,

    First let me say, we miss you!  Though our building is closed, the care and concern we have for each of you has not stopped.  Our teachers are still working hard to make sure you continue to get the best education possible.  I know that many of you have questions about what to expect during the upcoming weeks.  I have set up several meetings so that you can chat with me live, to ask any questions you may have. Advisory teachers will be emailing the links to you this week. Join me on google chat at the following times:
    Tuesday March 24th- Seniors  11:30am- 12:30pm
    Tuesday March 24th- Juniors 1:00- 2:00pm
    Wednesday March 25th- Freshmen and Sophomores 3:00- 4:00pm
    Wednesday March 25th - Parents 6:00- 7:00pm
    I want to reassure you that we are all adjusting to a new reality.  I understand how important high school milestones such as graduation and prom are for our students. As I work in accordance with our state and local officials, I will make a determination as to best handle these events.  It is my goal to postpone, rather than cancel if necessary.  As of now, there have been no changes to either of these events.  
    Please remember that high school courses and college courses are different.  We strongly encourage you to complete the enrichment material provided by your LEC high school courses, but it is not required.  Grades and attendance for high school courses are not being kept at this time. However, please note that CCCC courses begin on March 23rd.  The course work in these classes fall under a different set of guidelines. Please contact your course instructor or Mr. Testa concerning the expectations for college courses. 
    As always if you have any questions or concerns you can email me at kderr.lec@lee.k12.nc.us.  You may call and leave a message for me at 919-888-4502, and I will return your call at my earliest convenience. Thank you for your patience, understanding, and continued support of LEC.

  • LEC teachers will be posting review/enrichment activities using their web based platforms (google classroom, canvas, teacher webpages, etc.). Students are encouraged to work on academic activities during our time off, but it is not required. Students should contact their teachers via email if they have any questions about assignments or expectations. Our main concern is keeping our students and their families safe during this time.
