Learning Options for 2021-2022 School Year

Greetings SDLC Families,

Thank you for your patience and partnership as we continue to navigate through this challenging year. As we begin to see the light at the end of the tunnel, our thoughts are turning to what the 2021-22 school year will look like. To that end, we have made the decision to discontinue offering the Lee Home Connect learning model for the next school year.

We understand that this may cause concern for families who wish to have their child enrolled in a virtual learning environment, however, Lee Virtual School will continue to be an option.

Students currently enrolled in Lee Home Connect will automatically be transitioned back to face-to-face learning at the assigned brick and mortar school they attended prior to Lee Home Connect (with the exception of fifth and eighth graders moving to middle or high school, who will be assigned to their school via our Student Enrollment process).

  • If this transition is acceptable to you and your family, no action needs to be taken.
  • If you would like to enroll your child into Lee Virtual School for the fall of 2021, you must follow the Lee Virtual School enrollment process. Deadline to enroll is July 15, 2021.

Students currently enrolled in Lee Virtual School who signed up during the 2020-21 school year due to the pandemic, will automatically be transitioned back to face-to-face learning at their assigned brick and mortar school.

  • If this transition is acceptable to you and your family, no action needs to be taken.
  • If you would like to continue in Lee Virtual School for the fall of 2021, you must follow the Lee Virtual School enrollment process. Deadline to enroll is July 15, 2021.

** Students currently enrolled in Lee Virtual School who attended Lee Virtual School prior to the start of the 2020-2021, will remain in Lee Virtual School. **

While we continue to see improvements to public safety in relation to COVID-19, there is still uncertainty of where we will be by the start of the school year. Over the summer The School District of Lee County will continue to assess our health and safety processes and protocols with guidance from our healthcare partners.

Thank you again for your continued partnership and commitment to your child’s education.

Superintendent
Gregory K. Adkins, Ed.D.

** Please note that if you are a Lee Home Connect or Lee Virtual School family, you may receive a phone call from your child’s school to clarify the learning model transition for next school year. **
