Dear LCS families,

Happy New Year! We trust you enjoyed your winter break and remained healthy and safe. As we return, we want to provide you with a few updates. 

  • On December 15th, the Lynchburg City School Board made the decision that, due to possible travel during the holidays and potential spread of COVID-19, LCS would remain in Phase 2 remote-only learning for all LCS students through Friday, January 8, 2021. We continue to monitor and review our city and LCS metrics and have determined that in-person learning will resume the week of January 11th for students who were participating in hybrid learning during the first semester. Cohort A students will continue to attend on Tuesdays and Wednesdays, and Cohort B students will continue to attend on Thursdays and Fridays. Monday, January 11th will still be a remote-only learning day for all students.  
  • LCS School Nutrition and Transportation will be delivering meals this Wednesday, January 6th and Friday, January 8th using the same bus routes that had been established prior to the start of hybrid learning. Go to for the meal delivery map. We will also continue to offer meals at our three middle and two high schools with service Monday, Wednesday, and Friday between 11:00 a.m. and 1:00 p.m.
  • Throughout this week, please continue to encourage your children to check in daily and complete assignments via SeeSaw or Google Classroom. If you have any concerns or your child has limited or no access to the internet, please contact your child’s school so they can work with you! 

Also, please note this update for families requesting to switch from remote-only to hybrid learning for the second semester. By Tuesday, January 12th (end of the day), individual schools will communicate with families that requested a change from remote-only to hybrid learning in November, letting you know whether or not your request(s) has been accommodated. They will let families know which cohort their child is in and bus route details if applicable. Please refer to this LCS Update for Second Semester for the information that was shared in December regarding the switch from remote-only to hybrid learning.
