There was some type of gas leak at LCES this morning and students were evacuated to LCMS. Evacuation went very smoothly, and the LCES teachers did a fantastic job. They returned to their building about 20 minutes later.
Good morning LCES families. This morning as crew members were working on a water leak behind our school, they inadvertently hit a gas line. Out of an abundance of caution, students were evacuated to the middle school football stadium. The fire department and City Marshall came and shut the gas off. Once the fire department cleared the campus students were safely entered back into the building. We would like to thank all parties involved for their quick and efficient response as students were displaced for less than 15 minutes. Thank you to our students and staff for their patience. As always safety is our number one priority. Please feel free to reach out if you have any questions.

TR1BE, With so much uncertainty remaining as we navigate our days, weeks, and months, we know that many questions are swirling concerning the plans of our upcoming school year. We could put out a plan today that would likely need to change multiple times as health concerns and guidance changes over time. We are not behind the eight ball. Rather, we are taking things seriously, studying our options, and formulating research-based plans of action for the new school year. Our leadership team in Lumpkin County is currently meeting through email, virtually, and in person to work out details for the following areas: student and staff wellness, facilities, technology, school nutrition, transportation, instruction, assessment, and virtual learning. These focus groups will work in coordination with our school board to publish a final plan in mid-July. In the meantime, it’s important for you all to know this—student safety has been, is, and always will be our top priority in Lumpkin County. As parents, you will have a face-to-face option and a virtual option for your children. What those look like will be determined by the findings of our focus groups over the next month. Rest assured, we are working tirelessly to provide the best education in the safest environment possible for your children. We know other school systems are posting their tentative plans now, and we want you to know that we aren’t asleep on this topic. We like to take a calculated, strategic approach to our planning process. If you have questions or concerns that you would like to share with any of the focus groups mentioned above, please email email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org. We will be sure to pass along your correspondence to the focus group leader. Thank you for your continued support of Lumpkin County Schools!

Information for the upcoming weeks: All students in K and 1st will need new paper packets. Students in grades 2nd- 5th will only need paper packets if they aren’t completing assignments online. To pick up or drop off your paper packet, you will pull up to the front of the school like you do for parent drop off. You will stay in your car and we will come to your window to find out what paper packets you need and take up the old packets to be graded. The paper packet pick up and drop off times will be Monday, April 13 from 10- 2 pm and Tuesday, April 14, from 2-6 pm. You may also return library books during this time. Also, please keep in mind that the teachers will continue to be in close contact with you. If you or your child have emailed or contacted the teacher, kindly give them 24 hours to respond. Our teachers are spending countless hours trying to accommodate everyone’s schedules, so please be patient. Additionally, we realize that several students paid for field trips that were to take place this spring. We will be issuing refunds, we ask that you continue to be patient with us, as our bookkeeper is working diligently to complete this task. Once it is safe to do so, we will arrange some designated times for parents to come and pick up yearbooks and personal items. If you need medicine that was left in the clinic before this time, please email Nurse Grizzle at email@example.com to schedule a pick up time.
If you need Mr. Matt, our school counselor, during our time away from the school building please see the information below. https://sites.google.com/lumpkinschools.com/lcescounselorinfo/home
