Lamar County School District COVID-19 Update 3/13/20

Lamar County School District COVID-19 Update - March 13, 2020
Our Superintendent, Board Members, and Principals have been very busy this week gathering information for the safety of our Students, Teachers, and Staff.  At the recommendation of the Alabama State Superintendent, Eric Mackey, and upon the guidance of the Alabama Department of Public Health, we have decided to implement the following:
  1. To cancel or limit any event where it would be expected to have 500 or more people gathered. This would include performances, plays, athletics, conferences, etc. Please note that amended activities may still be appropriate if you can limit attendance.
  2. To postpone or cancel any and all field trips, whether inside or outside of Alabama.
These actions will be effective immediately and until further notice.  We will continue to pass along information as it becomes available.  We have resources on our website about the COVID-19, along with tips on how to stay well.
