Principal's Message

Dear Sterling families,

This has been a start to our school year unlike any other. Thank you for your continued support and dedication to your student's education. I am so thankful for our partnership in supporting our students in their learning. We have school again tomorrow, Tuesday, December 22, and then Winter Break begins the following day, Wednesday, December 23. Winter break is a time for family and relaxation. Even though things look a bit different this year, I hope you are able to connect with those you love, even if it is virtually. Students and staff will return to virtual learning on Monday, January 4, 2021. We will continue to monitor the health metrics, and messaging will be sent out from LCPS and/or the school regarding the day hybrid students will return to the building for in-person instruction.

Please reach out to me with any questions or concerns. We love our precious community and are so happy to serve you each and every day.

Loudoun County Public Schools will send out an e-mail to families communicating when the Qualtrics system is down.
