As announced on Monday, March 16, all schools in Lauderdale County will be closed until at least March 31 to limit community exposure to COVID-19. An update on future closures will be posted to this site and social media outlets prior to March 31.
As this is a rapidly evolving situation, we will be sharing additional information and mobilizing as many services to support our students as possible. Beginning March 23, Lauderdale County Schools will be making free meals available to students at several locations.
