Lexington Two elementary schools returns to remote learning for the next two weeks


West Columbia, SC 09/01/2021 -- Students at Wood Elementary will move temporarily from in-person classes to remote learning.

Wood Elementary’s two-week shift to remote learning, announced Wednesday, will run Thursday, September 2, through Wednesday, September 15. Students are tentatively scheduled to return to campus on Thursday, September 16.


The decision to move to temporary remote instruction is a result of the impacts of COVID-19 on students, staff and safe school operations, as well as the challenge of securing substitutes. This decision is not only tied to the number of students and staff who are positive, but the number of students and staff who are also quarantined as the district continues to adhere to quarantine procedures

"We already had a number of Wood classes in quarantine," Superintendent Dr. Nicolas Wade said. "As of Wednesday afternoon, nearly one-third of Wood students were positive or in quarantine, along with a number of staff out for illness and quarantine."


There will be no athletics, clubs, activities and/or events during these remote learning periods. These activities will resume when students return to campus for in-person classes.
