New Lexington City Schools’ Families:

On November 18, 2015, at 9:00 a.m., we conducted a planned safety drill with law enforcement at both the high school and middle school. We tested our emergency communications as well as K-9 search teams in both buildings. We want to personally thank the New Lexington Police Department and Perry County Sheriff’s Department for their collaboration in helping us keep our schools safe. We are extremely proud of our staff and students for helping make the safety drill a success. Even though our district buildings are very secure, we are working together with law enforcement to evaluate and improve our safety protocol and crisis planning. Thank you for your support and keep up the good work !!

Message from the Director of Student Services

As Director of Student Services, I have been working very hard at continuing our school psychology services to meet our student's needs this year. Due to the loss of our Psychologist last August, we were unable to find a permanent Psychologist to take over that position. So, in tough times it causes us to think differently about how to get the job done. We are excited to have had several school Psychologist working with our students on testing, evaluations, and parent meetings through out the year. We are working with Mike Fain, Director of Psychologist from the Muskingum Valley ESC. Mr. Fain and I have worked out a schedule to meet the needs of our district and continue with the services to our students and their family's the rest of the year. If you should have a need to contact one of us regarding service, feel free to do so.

NLCS Calamity Day Make Up Plan
Beginning with the 2014-15 school year, public schools must comply with minimum hours of instruction instead of m minimum number of school days each year. Historically, the the state has recognized a set number of calamity days where schools can be closed due to inclement weather or other emergencies. The state no longer controls calamity days. This year, the plan to make-up missed school days can be set by a district's Board of Education as long as it meets the minimum requirement of hours.
Please click on the document below explaining New Lexington City Schools plan for calamity days.
