North Lawrence Community Schools Superintendent Ty Mungle released the following message to parents today:
It is with many mixed emotions that I share North Lawrence Community Schools will be closed until May 1st as mandated by Governor Eric Holcomb.
NLCS will suspend all required at home learning until April 13th.
With our teachers not having access to the schools, we didn’t see any other options at this time. These actions align with state mandates to protect our entire NLCS community.
NLCS will continue to provide optional learning opportunities for all grades. Parents and students may visit the NLCS website or your student’s Google Classroom for more information. High school students enrolled in dual credit courses should reach out to their teacher following spring break. Teachers will communicate expectations for college credits and the next steps for students as they learn more.
NLCS will continue to provide meals for our students. Starting on Monday, March 30, we will expand food pick up sites to Shawswick Middle School and Oolitic Middle School, while continuing to offer pick up at Bedford Middle School. Food Pick up will be available at these sites on Mondays and Thursdays from 11-1 pm. Please Sign-up for meals on our website and feel free to call the administration building at 812-279-3521 if you are unable to arrange a meal pickup for your child.
All NLCS schools will be closed to all non-essential personnel for the next two weeks. Please email or call the administration building if assistance is needed during this time. At this time we anticipate a future update around April 13 to consider the many social events that were planned and matter so much to our students and families. Some examples include Prom and Graduation.
Again, I would like to thank you for your patience and understanding as we work to find the safest solutions for all.
