LCPS Parent Newsletter

Updated Edition: May 18, 2020

Dear Families,

Lunenburg County Public Schools has a few important announcements we would like to share with students and families.


Senior Celebrations Scheduled

With the current situation with the COVID-19 Pandemic, senior celebrations and graduation will definitely be different. We want to celebrate our CHS Seniors the very best we can and we are getting excited about all of the plans CHS has developed to recognize the Class of 2020.

  • May 17 at 11 AM - Drive Up Baccalaureate at the Girls' Softball/Lightning Football field in Kenbridge
  • May 26 from 3-6 PM - Drive Thru Cap & Gown Orders (for those who still need cap and gown) at CHS - Please bring cash in exact change. Cap & Gown is $55. Announcements are $2. Tassels are $10. Caps are $15.
  • May 27 at 7 PM - Drive Thru Curbside Senior Celebration
  • May 28 at 6 PM - Virtual Class Night
  • May 30 at 9 AM - Drive Up Graduation - 2 vehicles per student at CHS

Dr. Stanislas will be sending a letter home with more details about procedures.

Congratulations Class of 2020!

EBT Cards

Due to the COVID-19 crisis, additional benefits will be provided to some LCPS families. The Families First Coronavirus Response Act of 2020 will issue designated families food funds through Pandemic Electronic Benefits Transfers (EBT). All KES, VES, and LMS students will be eligible to receive funds because schools participate in the Community Eligibility Provision (CEP) meal service program. CHS students who receive free or reduced meals will be eligible to receive funds. This is a one-time supplemental program and funding will not be ongoing. Families will receive EBT debit cards and a FAQ sheet regarding the program through the U.S. Postal Service in mid-May. The Department of Social Services will handle funds, cards and undeliverable cards.

Timeline for the Remainder of the School Year


Due to recent mandates, our team has developed a framework moving forward. These procedures have been established based on guidance from the Virginia Department of Education along with input from school and division leaders. The intention is not to give an answer to every question that may arise in the process, but to provide a basic framework for how we will operate over the next couple of months. In all of these efforts, it is our intention, to the best of our ability, to provide a meaningful educational experience for all our students for the remainder of the school year.


Governor’s School and Dual Enrollment students will also have specific work that must be completed in order to receive dual enrollment credit. Students should be in contact with their teachers. Please click here for frequently asked questions about dual enrollment.


Our learning plans are taking a more defined shape, and you will continue to receive updates from us. Our timeline moving forward:

April 6th - April 9th : This will be a teacher work week. Our intent is to identify the remaining essential content required for student success during the next school year. During this week, teachers will also begin developing weekly activities for the weeks of April 20th-May 21st to be put onto the LCPS Learning Portal. Supplementary materials will be provided that support previously taught material, as well as the exposure of new skills. This will be very important as the students return to school next year.

April 6th - May 21st : During this time students will be given an opportunity to replace an existing assignment, incomplete grade, or to earn extra credit in quarter three. There will be no quarter four grades.

April 13th-17th Spring Break: No work/activities assigned during spring break. Rest, relax, and rejuvenate!

April 20th - May 21st: New learning modules will be available for students for five weeks. A paper copy will be available to students that do not have internet access. Paper copies will be made available on given dates and times after April 20th . We will make this announcement after Spring Break. Please check the LCPS Learning Portal for updates. Also, it is very important for students in grades 3-12 to check their email.


Please know we feel it is important for students to continue learning throughout the school closure; there tends to be a loss of skills previously learned when they are not practiced or used. If at any time this becomes too much, please reach out for assistance from teachers and administrators. The best way to communicate is through email.

Meals

Lunenburg County Public Schools will be providing free meals (breakfast and lunch) to all children ages 2-18 next week on Mondays and Thursdays. This is a change. Locations will still be located at :
  • Kenbridge Elementary School : 11:00 AM-1:00 PM , Every Monday and Thursday, Pickup at the gym back parking lot.
  • Central High School: 11:00 AM -1:00 PM , Every Monday and Thursday, Pickup at the cafeteria entrance to the left of the main doors.

Please email Claudia Daniel (claudia.daniel@k12lcps.org) if you have questions. Thank you for your support in feeding our children.
