WELCOME TO DISTANCE LEARNING
Virtual Loudoun Distance Learning is a program that offers synchronous, daily instruction via Google Meet & Schoology.
Students enrolled in Virtual Loudoun Distance Learning will take all of their classes from a distance, without attending a brick and mortar school in person.
For school year 2021-22, Distance Learning is prioritized for students with health considerations.
Students must commit to distance learning for the full school year.

TO REQUEST DISTANCE LEARNING
1. Discuss Distance Learning with the school counselor or school administrator at your student's school.
2. As needed, have your student's medical provider, or the medical provider of their residential family member fill out the medical form
3. Access and complete the web application between Monday, May 24, 2021 and Wednesday, June 30, 2021.
Seats will be offered on a space-available basis for students with academic requests. Families seeking distance learning for academic reasons will not need to submit the medical form, instead they will have an opportunity to describe why distance learning might be the best fit for their student.
There is no question that returning to school feels unfamiliar, and even uncertain, for students and families. We remain confident that returning students to classrooms where they can grow, thrive, interact, collaborate, question, and socialize, even at a distance, is the way to maximize learning leading to academic and social growth. LCPS has implemented multiple layers of protection to mitigate the spread of COVID-19 within our schools and offices and has prioritized, as mandated by the state, the safe return of students to classrooms. Our staff vaccination rate is high and we plan to provide in-person classroom instruction to more than 99% of our students this year. You can read the full plan on our website to learn more about how LCPS is taking active steps to a layered mitigation approach to minimize disruption while maximizing in-person learning opportunities.
The distance learning application was open May 24 through June 30, when all students were welcome to apply. At this time, we are not able to accept additional Distance Learning requests and our waiting list has been closed. We do not have the capacity to welcome additional students off the waitlist, even those with student or familial medical concerns. Please reach out to your home school for mitigation strategies to support your student's safe return to in-person learning.
