Summer Virtual Learning Resources

FCPS school buildings will remain closed through the end of July, , however, Gunston Elementary will continue to provide learning opportunities, remotely, for students throughout the summer.

All students currently in grades K-6 will receive both a Mathematics and a Language Arts Essentials Summer Practice Book in the mail by the end of June. Digital versions of the books will also be posted on the Continuity of Learning Blackboard page. These books will provide recommended practice activities for students to review essential content from the 2019-2020 school year; they are not intended to preview content from next year’s grade level but rather reinforce essential learning from this past year. 

As students access these activities from June 29 to July 31, they will have the opportunity to attend one virtual office hour each week with one of our own outstanding staff members.  All students will receive information about how to connect to their class through their Gmail account on Wednesday, June 24, 2020 by their summer school teacher.  Your child will join the grade level class that matches the grade level content practice book you receive.

Please contact Kristen Rucinski, @email, if you have any questions.
