COVID

Opening day – First Day Of School

LEC plans to open its doors for students in a staggered manner, which will better enable our students and staff to adjust to the new restrictions and ease the opening rush, and allow preschool parents to bring their children into classes the first day.  Only preschool parents will be allowed to bring their children into class.

LEC Main Campus

Monday- August 31 and Tuesday – September 1st  will be the opening day for Preschool & Young Division (Pre 1 A. and first grade).

Each parent will be given a time slot to bring their child to their class. This will serve as orientation, and give the child the ability to acclimate to their teachers and surroundings.

The specifics will be coordinated by the department office, and will be relayed to the parents.  

Wednesday – September 2  will be the opening day for second grade through fifth grade and first regular school day for Preschool and Young Division.

Thursday – September 3 will be the opening day for sixth grade through eight grade.
