The Lee County School Board met for their meeting last Tuesday through Zoom where the public was able to virtually attend. The school board provided an update on the graduate numbers amongst local schools for the 2020 senior class in the midst of COVID-19.

“Each high school is a little different in (terms of) plans for graduation and honoring the seniors,” said Superintendent Dr. Mac McCoy. “Principals have been very diligent towards working with their students and the seniors… plans are ever changing and as educators, we have always been very fluid in what we do.”
