Obtaining Technology Support

In-person learners: Each school has dedicated and on-site technical support. If an in-person student has a technology failure, the student will follow their school’s process for notifying the school’s Digital Experience Specialist to obtain technical assistance.

Remote learners: Students that are learning from home, whether 100% remote or at home on their hybrid day, may continue to call our Technology Support Center at 571-252-2112. If the Technology Support Center cannot remotely resolve the issue, the student will be referred to their school for on-site technical support.

During 100% distance learning, LCPS established centralized Hardware Repair Centers located throughout the district. We encourage students and parents to utilize their school’s on-site resources when possible. However, we understand the value these services have provided and will continue to operate these sites for the remainder of the year. Available locations and appointments may vary. Families can schedule an appointment at Please note that appointments are required.

Technology Turn-in Processes

PreK – 11th Graders: Except for graduating seniors, all students with an assigned computer (PreK-11th grade) planning to return to LCPS next year will maintain possession of their assigned computer over the summer break. These computers may be used for summer learning programs or securely stored in preparation for the next school year. Our team created this handout to answer questions about how to care for your computer over the summer.

12th Graders: Senior students will receive information about their school dates for collecting their assigned computers before the end of the school year. It’s important that before turning in your computer and charger, you remove any stickers or personalizations that you have applied to the LCPS property.

Students withdrawing from LCPS: Students withdrawing from the district should return their assigned computer to their school. You will receive a hand receipt confirming the return of your assigned computer and charger. LCPS will generate an invoice for the replacement cost of any unreturned equipment. We also ask that you remove stickers or personalizations to the computer before returning it. If you’re unable to visit your school, we have limited appointments at our Hardware Repair Centers that can also accept your computer.

Please contact the LCPS Technology Support Center at 571-252-2112 with questions.


This week's concert features some of the students who were selected for 2021 All State Guitar or Orchestra.

Hope you enjoy and check back next Thursday for concert # 3.

“Purple Up! For Military Kids” Day

“Purple Up! For Military Kids.” Is a day in April set aside for everyone around the Nation to show their support for military connected students.

We currently have 27 students whose parents are either active duty or in the reserves.

VDOE encourages the entire school community – teachers, principals, students, parents, bus drivers, etc. – to wear purple on April 21, 2021 to show support for our military students and appreciation for their strength and sacrifices. Purple represents the blending of the colors of the five branches of our armed forces. Here in Virginia, we are proud to be home to Air Force, Army, Coast Guard, Marine Corps, Navy, National Guard and Reserve families.
