Good Evening LCPS Families,
As shared at last night’s meeting, the LCPS School Board continues to support the recommendation from our January meeting to resume with our Return to Learn Plan. The plan is to move forward with Pre-K through sixth graders returning February 16th on our hybrid model and seventh through twelfth graders returning March 1st on our hybrid model. Virtual learning will remain an option for all students. Dismissal for all students will be at 1:00 p.m. and Fridays will remain a virtual learning day for all students. Students and staff are expected to follow all safety guidelines in order to maintain our safety mitigations. Again, these are uncharted territories for us. We know there will be issues that we will have to work through. We ask for your patience and cooperation as we proceed.
For the sake of consistency, we will follow this plan unless a major event, local health data or a challenge with having available staff prohibits our ability to proceed with providing in-person learning opportunities through our hybrid model. Families of students who will be attending in-person should prepare for the possibility of having to shift between learning modes from time to time. The Learning Modes may be different for each school if the necessity arises. You can view the ‘LCPS Learning Modes’ chart along with the current designated mode for LCPS at all times on our website. (lcs.k12.va.us) We will also communicate directly with families if a shift in mode is necessary.
Dan Russell, Superintendent
