Penguin Press News Summer Edition

July 15, 2020


Dear LPE Families,

I know that many of you are still in the process of determining whether or not your child(ren) will return to campus in person or attend school through the Virtual Academy. As a parent, I find this to be a difficult decision. In this second Summer Edition of the Penguin Press, we have attempted to put together a one stop location for your research. As we journey through the next few weeks and months together, no matter whether or not you are attending school through a blended format or fully remote, we will continue to share details and plans for the school year. Thank you for your continued patience and support. Our community is strong! #PenguinsPersevere
