Update From Lincoln County Schools

Lincoln County Schools
Press Release


4,018...that's how many meals Lincoln County Schools gave out Wednesday (March 25th) at their eight locations offering a drive-thru pickup of lunch and breakfast for the next day to feed kids during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Of course, the primary purpose of the school system isn't feeding children; it's educating them.  The pandemic has created a period of tremendous difficulty in accomplishing that mission.  

The School Board (Board of Education) will meet again this Friday morning to continue discussing what's been done, what is being done, and what is yet to be done during this crisis.  

Supt. Dr. Lory Morrow issued the following update Wednesday:

Thank you for your patience and understanding as we work through COVID-19 and its impact on our schools. We are receiving new guidance daily from the North Carolina Department of Public Instruction, the State Board of Education, the State Superintendent of Public Instruction, and the Lincoln County Health Department. I am working closely with the Lincoln County Board of Education to make the best possible decisions for all students and staff during this pandemic. This is an ever changing situation and we are working tirelessly to plan and prepare during this school closure.

FREE MEALS TO-GO

We are encouraging the community to take advantage of the Free Meals To-Go program at the eight designated school locations. Call the Lincoln County Schools Child Nutrition department at 704-736-4301 if you have questions.

All feeding sites are drive-through only. Families are asked to stay in their cars and pull up to the designated areas for pick up. The drive-through area will be located at the bus entrance of the school site.

Parents may go to any school offering these free meals. Parents are not required to go to the school their child attends. Each day we will serve lunch and a breakfast meal for the following morning. Students are not required to be present. Parents/Guardians may pick up meals to take to students and younger siblings at home.

FREE MEALS TO-GO SITES:
PICK-UP TIME: 11:00 AM to 1:00 PM
  • Battleground Elementary
  • East Lincoln High
  • Iron Station Elementary
  • Norris S. Childers Elementary
  • North Brook Elementary
  • Pumpkin Center Intermediate
  • S. Ray Lowder Elementary
  • West Lincoln Middle
FREE MEALS TO-GO BUS DELIVERY:

On March 23, 2020 multiple Lincoln County Schools buses began delivering meals across the community. Teachers and administrators are contacting families to arrange this delivery. If you would like to have meals delivered, please contact your child’s school to request delivery.

From March 18 to March 24, 2020, the Lincoln County Schools Child Nutrition Department has served 16,032 meals. We are trying to reach as many students and their families as possible during the school closure. Thank you to the Child Nutrition and the Transportation Department for making this a priority.

COMMUNITY OUTREACH

Lincoln County Schools would like to thank all of those in the community who have donated food and supplies for our students and families. Our counselors and social workers have been able to deliver over 200 bags of food to those in need during this critical time. We continue to receive donations from the community at our Central Services building located at 201 Jeb Seagle Drive. Many of the donations have been left anonymously. However, we would like to especially thank Pursuit Church, Victory Baptist Church, the United Way, Burton Farms, and Chick-Fil-A for their generous donations.

If your company would like to donate food, contact Dr. Tim Beam at tbeam@lcsnc.org or 704-736-1017, extension 30172.

INSTRUCTIONAL SUPPORT

The Instructional Services Department has focused on teacher support and Professional Development for at-home learning. This has included answering questions related to instructional design and providing guidance to administration in how to monitor instruction that is being delivered remotely. Professional Development has focused on distance learning applications like Zoom, Canvas, Flipgrid, SeeSaw, etc. Efforts have also shifted on how to continue communication with students and parents regarding essential, time sensitive information. For example, communicating scholarship deadlines and applications to students while school is closed and ensuring that these students have access to any documents, letters of support, etc. Instructional Services will continue to monitor the roll-out of phase 2 of the remote learning plan this week and will begin developing phase 3 (April 20-May 15) for a targeted release of April 1, 2020.
