Lee County Board of Education Adopts Plan B for Upcoming School Year
At the Board meeting on July 20, the Lee County Board of Education unanimously voted to begin the school year on August 17 under the Governor’s Plan B option – Moderate Social Distancing. This option will bring students back into the schools under a schedule that varies by grade level while following specific guidelines, which include 6 ft. distancing in classrooms and throughout the buildings, the wearing of masks by all students in grades Kindergarten through 12, and one student per seat on busses.
Below is the outline of the Plan B Schedule for Grades K-12, along with information for non-traditional schools. This Plan B option ensures the health and safety of all students and staff, while finding a way to get as many students back into the classroom for as much in-person instruction as possible.
Lee County families also have the option of enrolling in the INSPIRED Virtual Academy for which offers a remote learning opportunity for grades K-12.

Parents and students can expect more detailed information over the next few weeks as we work towards getting our students and staff back into our school buildings safely. As a district, we will continue to monitor the effects of COVID-19 on our community and revisit our plans as needed.
