Sharing for awareness regarding increased police presence in Loudoun County schools.

In light of the horrific shooting at Robb Elementary School and as we grieve with the City of Uvalde, Texas and the nation, residents will see an increased LCSO presence at elementary schools in the county to ensure that our community feels safe in their schools.

Although there is no connection to Loudoun County and no known threats, the increased presence is being conducted in an abundance of caution over the next several days.

Our School Resource Officers will maintain their presence at each middle and high school they are assigned.

05/23/2022

Field Day volunteering spots are filling up fast!
Field day will be on Thursday, June 2nd. (Raindate will be Friday, June 3rd)

The format this year is slightly different with the school renovations going on. Therefore, field day will be split up into two halves, with grades 3-5 participating in the morning and K-2 participating in the afternoon. This year there will be no water games, and all activities will be outside. Mr. and Mrs. Sheppard of course will be creating lots of fun events for us to help run!

We will also be providing lunch to anyone who chooses to volunteer for both sessions (note you will have to sign-up under both slots).

If you have any questions, please email Yuri Shabanowitz at [email protected]
