Summer Academy Information

Laburnum Families,

Plans for Summer Academy 2021 are well underway! Summer Academy 2021 offers a unique opportunity for our currently enrolled Pre-K to Grade 5 students. At no cost to HCPS families, learners have the opportunity to receive teacher-led, in person or virtual learning in literacy and mathematics, along with social emotional learning. Reading and math activities will include whole class instruction in addition to small group instruction to meet students’ individual needs.

Elementary Summer Academy learning is Monday through Thursday from 8:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. July 12 to August 5. Families have the flexibility to attend the entire four weeks, or they may attend a two-week session, July 12-July 22 or July 26-August 5 from 8:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Breakfast and lunch will be served, and transportation to elementary school sites will be provided.

Registration information is forthcoming. Thank you!
