Batesburg-Leesville Schools Go Virtual for Week Due to COVID

Posted

Another Lexington County school district has gone virtual for a few days due to COVID-19.

Lexington County School District 3, with schools in Batesburg-Leesville, will go to virtual learning Tuesday, Jan. 18 through Friday, Jan. 21. Students were already off Monday for the Martin Luther King Jr. holiday.

“The move to virtual learning comes as a result of a critical spread of COVID-19 at all schools among students and faculty and an inability to adequately staff schools and continue face-to-face instruction,” reads a release from the district.

“Please note that there will be no in-person, school-related practices, activities or games while Lexington Three is in remote learning mode. This means that all sports activities for both JV and Varsity teams are canceled until the school returns to in-person instruction. The after-school programs at B-L Primary and B-L Elementary Schools are also canceled while the district is in remote learning mode. In addition, day and evening classes at the Lifelong Learning Center are canceled.”

In-person instruction in the district is tentatively set to resume on Monday, Jan. 24.

“However, this will be confirmed by district officials closer to that date,” the release notes.

Lexington-Richland School District 5 sent students home from Jan. 14 through Jan. 18. The district posted to social media on Tuesday that students are still set to return to in-person instruction on Wednesday, Jan. 19, as scheduled.

Before District 5 went virtual in its entirety, one of its schools, Chapin Elementary, announced on Tuesday, Jan. 11 that it would go virtual for the rest of last week, and River Bluff High School in Lexington County School District 1 announced that it would send students home for the entire week.
