Loudoun County Public Schools

The Department of Instruction and Pupil Services has published a summer Continuity of Education resource for Loudoun County Public Schools (LCPS) families.

The website (https://tinyurl.com/y85b82yt) is intended to help students maintain the learning they achieved during the 2019-2020 school year so that they have a high level of readiness when school resumes for the 2020-2021 school year. All activities are voluntary and are designed to support parents in their efforts to keep students learning so their academic skills remain sharp.

The website includes:

• Information on digital tools that students have access to this summer;

• A link to our curriculum pages;

• Information on family-friendly websites;

• A link to social-emotional resources; and

• A section on Special Education.

Additional resources will be added to the website later in the summer.

Pour the soda into a glass and then just add your popsicle to your soda. Not only does it keep your drink cool, but it also adds a bright color to your beverage. As the popsicle begins to melt, break it up like a slushy. What other ways do you enjoy your popsicles?
