    Loudoun County Public Schools, under the leadership of the Loudoun County School Board, is planning how we will continue to fulfill our educational mission during the 2020-2021 school year, even in the face of continued uncertainty and challenges.  

    In the video below, we illustrate examples of what in-person learning with a revised approach to distance learning might look like for elementary-school students and high-school students. There would be similarities between middle-school and high-school experiences.

    Kết quả xổ số Phúc An hôm nayLCPS wants to maximize in-person, safe learning experiences for all our students in the 2020-2021 school year, and we know that many families and students share this priority. Our preference would be for 100% in-person learning, as long as we can provide learning experiences safely and in accordance with the requirements and recommendations of state and public health officials.  

    As LCPS looks ahead to the new school year, the by Governor Northam on Tuesday, June 9, set forth guidance for LCPS and other Virginia school divisions for the 2020-2021 school year. The Virginia Return to School plan and the accompanying report aligns school reopening phases with the phases, and outlines public health precautions for the new school year. 

    The health and safety of students, staff members and their families is paramount in Virginia’s guidance, and it continues to be top of mind for LCPS. The announcement of the Virginia Return to School plan was accompanied by the issuance of a new order by Virginia’s Public Health Commissioner. The mandates that every public and private school in Virginia submit plans outlining their strategies for mitigating the public health risk of COVID-19 and complying with (CDC) and (VDH) mitigation recommendations prior to reopening schools for the new year. 

    The approach we are able to implement at the start of the new school year will depend on which phase of recovery Northern Virginia is in at the time, based on the health conditions in our community then. Each phase of recovery involves different levels of mitigation to protect students and staff. Each level of mitigation will allow different numbers of students to occupy buses, classrooms and other common areas which must be considered in determining return-to-school plans.
