Extended School Summer 2021

Littleton Public Schools is excited to announce additional learning opportunities for students this summer!

We have extended school programs for current kindergartners through current 11th graders (the grade they were in during the 2020-2021 school year). LPS summer programs will be taught by licensed LPS teachers, special educators, mental health professionals and administrators. All appropriate COVID-19 safety measures will be in place in alignment with health officials' guidance. Students will have the opportunity to interact with peers in person and will benefit from a variety of social/emotional learning and activities. General social/emotional support, counseling, and crisis intervention will also be avaialble for students.

Based on family feedback from earlier this spring, the expanded program will take place during the month of June, four days a week (Monday through Thursday) in the mornings. Transportation will be provided at various pick up/drop off locations throughout the district and grab & go lunches also will be provided for participating students.
