Completion of Year

April 20, 2020


Dear Lexington Catholic Families,


Earlier this evening, Governor Andy Beshear recommended that all schools continue distance learning until the end of the school year. In accordance with this directive, all schools in the Catholic Diocese of Lexington will not resume in-person classes and continue virtual instruction for the remainder of the academic year.


This recommendation, while anticipated, is still difficult for us as a school community. We will continue the high academic standards you are accustomed to and continue to deliver them to the best of our ability in a virtual format.


Our last day of scheduled virtual instruction is as follows:

  • Seniors:                                   May 14, 2020
  • All Underclassmen:                May 29, 2020

With this announcement, comes many questions about how we will conclude the academic year. Over the next few days and weeks, we will inform you of the protocols and procedures that will be implemented to complete the school year. These will not only include information about events but also textbook return, locker cleanout, etc. Our plans are subject to change due to the ever-evolving COVID-19 situation. All procedures and changes will be communicated to students and families as soon as possible.

No final decision about future school events such as Honors Assembly, Prom, and Graduation, have been made. We will update the status of individual events as the diocese and state government provides additional directives. Recognizing the importance of key milestones in the high school experience, we remain committed to hosting as many of these events as possible when we can safely gather as a school community.


In these unprecedented times, we ask for your continued prayer and support for one another, the LCHS family, and the entire Lexington community. Please continue to monitor our communication center at .


In His Name,



Mr. Mathew George, Ed.S.
