Jump Start Program Cancelled

Lee County Public Schools Jump Start Summer School that was going to last until Thursday, July 30th from 9am-1pm each day, has been cancelled.
According to Lee County School Superintendent, Brian Austin, “Due to the recent and continuing increase in cases in Lee County, Lee County Public Schools is cancelling the summer Jump Start Program immediately. While the program only operated for one day, the current situation related to public health warrants an abundance of caution.”
School staff members at a local Lee County Public Rosehill Elementary school as well as the Lee County Career and Technical Center have recently tested positive for the virus, according to the school’s superintendent. Austin went on to add that the Lee County Health Department is currently investigating the cases as well as contacts of the cases along with cautioning them about the serious need for isolation and quarantine.
Austin went on to reassure that all areas used by the positive cases have been thoroughly sanitized and cleaned.
Lee County Public School Officials are strongly encouraging and reminding everyone that ventures out into the public to wear a face covering while maintaining social distancing guidelines and of course wash your hands thoroughly and often to help curb the spread.
Lee County Public Schools Officials went on to say that if a family member of a student should test positive, the student or students who are quarantined may not attend any school functions.
