Distance Learning Update

Below are details on how students/families will receive feedback and grades from Distance Learning assignments. 

  • The purpose of all grade reporting within Parent Portal and/or Google Classroom will be to give students feedback on assignments identified by your child’s teacher.
  • “Missing” will be placed within Parent Portal until the student submits the work.  
  • Final Exams will not be administered (secondary schools).
  • Final grades reported on the Report Card (June 12) will be based on Quarter 3 grades and Distance Learning grades that maintain or improve each student’s current grade or achievement.  
  • Families are encouraged to reach out to their child’s teachers/school administrator if he/she is experiencing hardships during Distance Learning so they can create an individualized plan to address your needs.  

If you have any additional questions or concerns, please reach out to your child's teacher or a school administrator:




School District Five is actively pursuing options for graduation ceremonies, per guidance of state and federal officials. This week we provided a survey to seniors and their parents to help plan an event that would best honor and celebrate the Class of 2020, while remaining committed to safety guidelines. Specific plans for graduation ceremonies in School District Five will be forthcoming.




Distance Learning will continue in School District Five. Our teachers and district staff are working to create additional instructional materials for students and possible opportunities for some students to participate in teleconferencing and two-way communications between teachers and students. 

  • Reminder: School District Five has a webpage to provide resources to free Wi-fi providers, technology information and more. Visit:

  • Students and parents can email their teachers or an administrator for help and instruction on materials. Office hours for teachers are Monday through Friday, between the hours of 9 a.m. and 1 p.m. 

  • During the closure, School District Five staff will be working virtually, and email is the quickest and most efficient way to get answers to your questions. Visit:




Free meals for children age 18 or younger are offered on Mondays only at six schools in Lexington-Richland School District Five. Students receive 5 days worth of breakfast and 7 days worth of lunch items, during the Monday meal offering. 

  • To ensure we serve as many children as possible each week, families should visit only one of our sites each week and accept 1 (one) 5-day supply (per child age 18 and under) each week. Though students are not required to be present at feeding sites, parents will be required to show their students' ID cards, if they have them. If they do not have them, they will be required to sign their name and list their children’s names in order to receive the meals.
