We have received requests about providing instructional resources so our students can remain actively engaged while they are away from the classroom. We created a separate website, one.lowndes.k12.ga.us, which includes directions for accessing instructional programs through Clever for grades 2-8, as well as other resources our certified staff felt would benefit our students. Here is the link for elementary students - Elementary Resources.

Students can access these activities online via Google Classroom, their Lowndes County email, or at one.lowndes.k12.ga.us.

As students begin working through the instructional review activities, our teaching staff will be available during normal school hours to monitor their school email and can address any concerns or questions students or parents may have. Should you or your child have a question, your teachers may be reached by email, Remind, or Class Dojo. If you have problems logging into Clever (grades 2-8), please send an email to portal@lowndes.k12.ga.us with your child’s name, teacher’s name, and grade level.

We are fortunate to be a part of a community that ensures our children have the support and services they need to be successful. The instructional review activities were not created to burden our families. We wish to provide this service for our families seeking our assistance in providing instructional support during this time.

Until we receive further instructions, please continue to practice the safeguards as directed by our Federal, State, and local health officials. We will continue to provide academic support and COVID-19 updates as they develop on our website. A list of our food distribution sites for the week of March 23 can be found at the one.lowndes.k12.ga.us website.
