  • Remote Learning & No Classes on Monday, January 10

    Dear Lee Academy Community,      

    Given the current number of active covid cases and individuals in quarantine (27 individuals), Lee Academy will not hold in person classes tomorrow, Monday, January 10 and will move to remote learning on Tuesday, January 11. We will continue with remote learning through Friday, January 21. We did not make this decision lightly and understand the importance of in person learning. However, our first priority is the safety of all of our community members. We will reevaluate the community covid numbers over the next two weeks and continue to make decisions that are best for everyone's safety. The faculty and educational staff of Lee Academy will complete a day of professional development (Monday, January 10) to roll out a Google Classroom experience that will be utilized during remote learning. 
    We are thankful to Mr. Knowles for continually following all operating procedures from the Maine CDC and Maine DOE. Thank you for your support as we move ahead through this pandemic together.  
    Chris Murphy
    Head of School
