Our Family ASL Classes will be starting again on January 31st!
Free and virtual, the classes are open to all families with students here at Lexington. We love having grandparents, aunts, uncles etc. as well - just pass along the registration link for them to sign up.
With increasing rates of flu and other respiratory viruses as we approach the coming winter, the NYC Department of Health has issued a universal indoor masking recommendation for all indoor public settings including schools, child care facilities, lobbies, elevators, hallways, offices, public transportation (buses, subways) and crowded outdoor settings.
Here at Lexington, the safety of our students and staff is our absolute top priority. As always, we follow the guidance of our health experts and partners at the Department of Health. We strongly encourage every student and staff member to wear a well-fitting mask indoors. Also we encourage all to stay up to date with vaccinations, including flu and COVID-19.
It can be hard to know when to send children to school if they tell you that they do not feel well. Usually, the best place for them is in school, but there are some times when keeping them home to rest or call for an appointment with your health care provider is recommended.
Congratulations to speech-language-pathologist Alison Baade, MS, CCC-SLP, for being published in the May edition of the American Speech-Hearing Association's ASHA Leader. Alison's article, "Audism" Begins With Education," discusses how graduate coursework can be reframed to minimize audism and reduce harmful myths about the Deaf and Hard of Hearing (DHH).

The sun was out and the barbeque sizzled during last Thursday's Junior/Senior Tea Party! The event was hosted by Lexington's Junior class under the supervision of Core Advisors Yvette Brown and Dolly Dominguez. Members of the Class of '22 and their advisors, Melissa Vigilante and Shaunina Young, proudly wore their tie-died class t-shirts.
