Back to School Night 2020-2021

In case you missed it! We heard some families had trouble with volume which we think was due to the device requiring the live stream to be in full screen or the volume adjuster disappearing quickly after the page loaded. So with out further ado, W.E. present Back to School Night 2020-2021!

We look forward to seeing you this evening at our Back to School Night!

This parent event is for families with a student attending Waxpool that is not in Kindergarten.

Digital Experience Support - You can book online!

Were you unable to attend Waxpool's Chromebook distribution last week? Be sure to schedule an appointment at one of LCPS’ support centers by visiting https://bit.ly/DDI-REPAIR. Appointments for device assignment begin today, and will be available throughout the duration of 100% distance learning.
