Back to School
About 60 percent of Lenoir County Public School students plan to return to the classroom Monday when the district activates its hybrid learning option and about 40 percent plan to continue with fully remote learning, according to preliminary data from the district’s Family Choice survey completed last week.
At 85.4 percent, the four-year graduation rate for 2019-2020 is about three-quarters of a percentage point better than the previous year (84.7) and six points better than five years ago. Since 2006, the combined graduation rate for LCPS’s five high schools has climbed by 29.9 points, while the state average has improved by 19.3 points.
Free hot lunch and next-day breakfast will be provided curbside from 10:30 a.m.-1 p.m. at Kinston, South Lenoir and North Lenoir high schools and by 20 school buses making more than 130 stops at set locations each school day.
The clinics are scheduled for Aug. 31 in the Kinston High School gym lobby, Sept. 14 in the front lobby at South Lenoir High School and Sept. 21 in the front lobby at North Lenoir High School. All clinic hours are 8 a.m.-3:30 p.m.
