LYNCHBURG, Va. (WDBJ) - The Lynchburg City Schools board has voted to move their learning format to temporarily all-remote from Tuesday, December 15 - Friday, December 18 amidst the ongoing concerns associated with COVID-19.

All students in grades PreK-2 should utilize their SeeSaw account with the help of others to continue participating. Students from grades 3-12 are to log into Google Classroom with their Google Chromebooks received from Lynchburg City Schools.

Meals will continue to be available for pickup from 11 a.m. - 1 p.m. Wednesday and Friday at the three middle schools and two high schools. Additional food resources may be added.

Access to the internet is still available through the external access points at all LCS buildings at no charge. Hotspots are available through the LCS Information Technology team for families with limited or no access, and be paid for through the end of the school year.
