Weather Watch

Tropical Storm Elsa - Updated at 6:40 p.m. on 07.06.21

Good evening SDLC families.

The School District of Lee County continues to monitor the movement and intensity of Tropical Storm Elsa. Currently the forecast shows the storm moving out of our area in the early morning hours on Wednesday, July 7th. Due to the timing, we will not have the ability to inspect all of our school sites before Summer School begins. Consequently, we will close all school campuses to students on Wednesday, July 7th.

This means:

  • Elementary Face to Face Summer School classes will be cancelled.
  • Elementary Virtual School classes will be in session.
  • Middle and High School Face to Face Summer School classes will be taught virtually. We ask that middle and high school students log onto their Google Classrooms, and check their email for directions from their teachers on how to access their classes virtually.
  • Middle and High School Virtual School classes will be in session.
  • Support our Students (SOS) classes will be cancelled.
  • Summer camps hosted at school sites are cancelled.
  • All athletic conditioning for students is cancelled.

Thank you for your patience and understanding as we make these decisions in the interest of safety for our families.

Thank you,
The School District of Lee County
