LCPS & Coronavirus: Keeping our Schools Safe
To help keep students engaged in learning while public school classes are suspended throughout the state, LCPS has distributed materials to parents and students that included printed learning packets and, for elementary students who do not normally take them home, their school-issued iPads. Parents who were unable to pick up these items on Monday should contact their schools as soon as possible this week to make arrangements for getting these items.
High school and middle school students typically have their iPads with them and communicate with teachers via Learning Management Systems to receive and return assignments; they probably do not need to access their schools.
Also, LCPS has opened five feeding sites for "grab-and-go" lunches and next-day breakfasts to help meet students' nutritional needs. To find out more about this effort to support learning and keep students fed while schools are closed, click on the link below.
A Message From Our Principal
Dear South Lenoir Family,
Every school year brings new challenges and fresh beginnings. This year has been no different. South Lenoir continues to offer new and exciting opportunities to our students. These opportunities will lead to increased rigor and higher academic achievement for our students. For educators and parents, alike, nothing is more satisfying than reaching a child, academically and socially, and watching the student grow and blossom in front of our eyes.
South Lenoir is a wonderful school, full of tradition and pride. We are very fortunate to have the support of community stakeholders. We are also blessed to have wonderful kids who work hard and produce great results in the classroom as well. Additionally, I am also thankful for our staff who strive to do what is best for our students as well as make the necessary sacrifices to see that each student has the best opportunity to succeed.
Thank you for all you do for South Lenoir. I hope that each of you have a successful school year and please know our doors are always open to your concerns. Go Blue Devils!
Steve Saint-Amand / Principal
For LCPS, moving lessons online was both a sharp shift from proscribed teaching practices and a manageable step up for a district that, five years ago, put iPads in the hands of all K-12 students and has made digital learning – and the apps that power it – a key piece of classroom instruction.
A bag lunch and next-day breakfast are provided to all youth 18 and younger in Lenoir County and all LCPS students regardless of age. The program operates weekdays from 10:30 a.m.-12:30 p.m. from five school cafeterias – Kinston, North Lenoir and South Lenoir high schools, Southeast Elementary School and E.B. Frink Middle School.
First-place awards in varsity competition at Regional X competition – and tickets to N.C. Science Olympiad competition April 24-25 in Raleigh – went to Dawson Tyndall and Ryan Williams of South Lenoir High, Isaiah Howard and Tanner Jones of Woodington Middle and Marwan Albaadani and Jameon Estep of Rochelle Middle.
