Lewiston Independent School District will close Monday, March 16 through Friday, March 20 for deep cleaning and time for teachers to prepare instructional materials in the event the closure extends beyond spring break. At this time, we expect students and staff will return to school after spring break, on Monday, March 30.
During the closure, all school-based sports and extracurricular activities are cancelled. In addition, District facilities will be closed to all outside and extra-curricular activities.
We are currently working with District Nutrition Services to develop a plan to offer breakfast and lunch to students under 18 to help alleviate food insecurity. We will communicate more information as this becomes available.
Finally, I want to share my appreciation of our students, parents, staff, and community members as we navigate through these unchartered waters together. We, as a community, will continue to support one another and meet the challenges that we face. Maintaining a sense of calm, even when we may be feeling anxiety, is vital for ourselves, our children, and neighbors. As we support one another through the upcoming weeks, we will become stronger together.
