Lamar County School District COVID-19 Update - March 14, 2020

Last night, Governor Ivey issued a State of Emergency for the State of Alabama and mandated the closure of Alabama public schools for a 2.5 week break.

All Lamar County Schools will be in session and on regular schedule Monday, March 16 through Wednesday, March 18, 2020. All Lamar County students will be out beginning Thursday, March 19 through Friday, April 3, 2020. No extracurricular activities will take place during the break.

We will provide additional details as they come from the Alabama State Department of Education and other agencies.

We understand there are many questions about this situation. We have been planning for this since the beginning, and as this evolves we will be able to finalize and implement these plans. We will push information out as soon as it is available.
