Distance Learning

Distance Learning for Schools & Families: As Lee County Schools move to implement their Distance Learning Plan, they wanted to give students and families an idea of what to expect. Students will still be given instruction and learning but through a virtual learning plan via Google Classroom beginning March 30th. To help students become familiar with working virtually, they will dedicate time to teach students/families how to work with the essential components of a Google Classroom. As they move forward with the Distance Learning Plan, it is vital that students/families stay connected via School Messenger.

Chromebooks for Lee County School District Students: Families with internet access should contact their child’s school to pick up a Chromebook (computer) by Friday, March 27, 2020. Only one Chromebook (computer) per household will be issued.
