  1. Transportation Options
  2. Guidelines for Walking and Biking to and From School
  3. Guidelines for Taking the School Bus
  4. Guidelines for Arriving or Leaving in Cars
  5. Guidelines for Special Events on Campus
  6. Guidelines for Employee Parking
  7. Communications

“This online experience is intended to foster awareness and provide specific guidance to the Lexington school community with a focus on safety, reducing traffic congestion, and minimizing parking issues that could affect the surrounding neighborhood,” said Scott Westlund, chief financial and operations officer for the district.

The experience can be accessed at from October 19 through November 8 and, depending on responses, is anticipated to take 10 to 25 minutes. 

The district is also holding a virtual open house on November 5 at 6:00 pm to share the information. The open house can be attended via Zoom with this link: There will be a Q&A following the presentation.

“As we prepare to open Lexington Elementary School next fall, we are committed to working in partnership with the school community to ensure safe trips to and from school every day.
