November 3 and 5 to be Asynchronous Learning Days for Students


Our focus at LCPS continues to be on delivering education to students in-person; however, if something impacts our ability to deliver on this focus, we want to be proactive so families may plan. We have taken a close look at how the ongoing shortage of classroom and transportation substitutes may impact school operations during the week of November 1-5. During that week, there are two instructional days, a teacher work day where students are off and two holidays where schools are closed. 


In preparation for anticipated substitute coverage shortages during that week, the two instructional school days on November 3 and 5 will now be asynchronous learning days. Students will accomplish assigned school work remotely, on their own schedules. Teachers will use these two days as planning and work days. School meals will be provided onsite for pick up on Wednesday, November 3, and Friday, November 5.


There is no change to the published calendar/schedule other than November 3 and November 5. 


The full schedule beginning October 28 is as follows: 

Thursday, October 28 - Regular school day as scheduled 

Friday, October 29 - STUDENT HOLIDAY (County-wide Staff Development)

Monday, November 1 - STUDENT HOLIDAY (Planning/Records/Conference Days)

Tuesday, November 2 - STUDENT/STAFF HOLIDAY

UPDATE: Wednesday, November 3 - Teacher Planning Day / Student Asynchronous Learning Day

Thursday, November 4 - STUDENT/STAFF HOLIDAY 

UPDATE: Friday, November 5 - Teacher Planning Day / Student Asynchronous Learning Day


Thank you for your patience as we all work together during this time of ongoing challenges to help our students learn. 


Best wishes, 

Scott A. Ziegler, Ed.D.
