The following schools will transition to virtual learning on Monday, January 11, Brooklyn Springs Elementary, Heath Springs Elementary, Indian Land High and Lancaster High. Please see the information for each school below.

Brooklyn Springs Elementary
The number of faculty and staff who are out this week due to Covid – 19 surpasses our ability to cover classes and provide a safe learning environment. As a result, all students will transition to virtual learning beginning Monday, January 11 through January 22. At this time, students will return to in-person instruction on Monday, January 25.

This transition to virtual learning for all students means that students will not come to Brooklyn Springs Elementary School’s campus. All students will use their district-issued device to log in to their teacher’s Google Classroom during regular school hours on Monday – Thursday (January 11 – 22) for the next two weeks.

Kindergarten and first-grade students will also be able to log in to their teacher’s daily instruction using their district-issued device or a personal device through Google Classroom. More details will be sent by classroom teachers that are specific to your child’s classroom.

All students may pick up meals for this week on Friday, January 15 and January 22 at South Middle School from 11 a.m. – 1 p.m.

Your child’s teacher will provide you more information through the classroom communication app. If you have any questions, please contact your child’s teacher and we will work together to answer them for you.

Indian Land High
At this time, Indian Land High School is experiencing a severe shortage of faculty and staff due to COVID-19.

All instruction will be virtual through January 25, 2021, and all students will be required to access their classes via Google Meet. Teachers will be sending out the links and additional information before Monday, January 11, 2021. The Lancaster County Career Center will also be holding virtual classes until January 25th. Fall semester students will attend those classes virtually next week and Spring semester students will report to the Career Center according to their track beginning on the 25th.
