Lexington, SC – Lexington County School District One sent a message to its students' parents Wednesday notifying them of the 2020 end of the school year dates. They have been participating in e-Learning since SC Governor Henry McMaster ordered all SC schools closed and then announced on April 20th that South Carolina schools would remain closed for the rest of the school year.
In that message, the chief communications officer of Lexington County School District One wrote:
As Lexington County School District One closes out the rest of the year, here is a recap of important dates and deadlines.
