The LCPS Letter

  • The LCPS Letter is a twice-monthly newsletter to Loudoun County Public Schools (LCPS) families and staff! We are very proud of the work taking place in our schools. The LCPS Letter is an excellent way to get relevant news, notices and information about what is happening at LCPS. It will feature student and teacher success stories, vital program information, quick calendar updates and will be an easy way for you to find the information you care about.
