LCPS to Return to In-Person Learning in January 2021

The Lunenburg County School board met Monday night, November 9, 2020 and voted for LCPS to go back to in-person learning starting January 11th for Pre K through 6th Grade and January 19th for 7th - 12th Grade on an A/B Schedule.  Students will wear masks and observe social distancing at school and on the buses. All students will remain virtual during the months of November and December.  

For the month of January, the following will take place--

  • For the week of January 4-8, all students will learn virtually.  

  • For the week of January 11-15-- On January 11, Pre K - 6th Grade - Group A will attend school in-person and on January 12, Pre K - 6th Grade - Group B will attend school in-person.  January 13 and 14 are Teacher Workdays, and there will be no school for students.  Everyone will learn virtually on January 15. 

  • For the week of January 18-22-- On January 18, there will be no school in observance of the Martin Luther King, Jr. Holiday.  On January 19, all Pre K - 12th Grade - Group A students will attend school in-person.  On January 20 and 21 all Pre K - 12th Grade -  Group B students will attend school in-person.  On January 22 all students will learn virtually.

  • Starting the week January 25 and moving forward through the second semester-- Pre K - 12th Grade - Group A students will attend school in-person on Monday and Tuesday and will learn virtually Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday.  Pre K - 12th Grade - Group B students will attend school in-person on Wednesday and Thursday, and learn virtually on Monday, Tuesday, and Friday.  

  • If your student chose not to return in person and is learning virtually for the entire second semester, they will continue to use the Canvas platform to complete all instructional modules each week.

  • Remember that things can change quickly depending on the health data. LCPS will continue to monitor the health data closely. 

Winter sports were set to start in December, but the school board voted to cancel them since we will not be back to school in-person at that time.
