Louisa County Public Schools is closely monitoring the outbreak of a respiratory illness called COVID-19 (also known as Coronavirus). LCPS is providing this website as a resource and source of information for students, staff members, parents, and community members. LCPS administrators are working together to ensure our students, staff members, schools, and community members remain safe. Our goal throughout this entire process is to be as prepared as possible for whatever scenarios may lie ahead, as well as transparent as possible concerning our plans and procedures.

Currently, LCPS administrators are communicating regularly with -- and following the guidelines of -- the U.S. Centers for Disease Control, the World Health Organization, the Thomas Jefferson Health District, and the Virginia Department of Health. Our cleaning and disinfecting practices for both our classrooms and buses have been rigorous and performed daily. These cleanings involve the wiping down of handrails, doorknobs, and seats. All materials used to clean our schools and buses have confirmed kill claims for COVID-19.

LCPS has also formed a COVID-19 Response Team to address all school-related concerns associated with COVID-19. This team is collaborating to provide alternative learning resources for all students!

LCPS understands that some parents and guardians may have specific concerns regarding COVID-19. We invite you to check out our Frequently Asked Questions page, which addresses a variety of topics.

Most importantly, we remind you to stay calm. The best preventative measure for any communicable disease is to practice common sense and follow good hygienic practices, such as avoiding close contact with people who are sick and washing your hands often.

If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact our Central Office team at 540-894-5115.

Thank you for your cooperation and understanding as we work through a truly unique situation. We appreciate your support of our efforts to keep our students, staff, and community healthy and safe!
