School District Five Board approves 2019-2020 school calendar

The Lexington-Richland School District Five Board of Trustees unanimously approved the calendar for the 2019-2020 school year.


The calendar has school beginning for students on Aug. 21, 2019 and ending the year on June 5, 2020. The district will have a Fall Break on Oct. 25 and Oct. 28, 2019.  The goal of adding these dates into the calendar is to account for possible inclement weather. 


“Producing the calendar involves balancing requirements from the state, as well as input from our advisory groups, including parents, faculty, staff and community members,” said Superintendent Dr. Christina Melton.  “We are grateful for the annual input of our parents and other stakeholders, who help ensure the calendar would best suit the needs of students, staff and our School District Five community.”


Other notable calendar items include:


  • Thanksgiving Break will be Nov. 27-29, 2019
  • Winter Break will be Dec. 23, 2019 - Jan. 3, 2020*

(*January 2 and January 3 are work days for 240-day employees)

  • Spring Break will be April 13 - April 17, 2020
