Pretty soon after the Near Year, parents everywhere are starting to think, “Okay, what is my child going to do this summer?” For roughly a third of LPS students, they will attend our annual 3 week Summer Program which is held every July. And new this year, we are thrilled to open up the program to the public!
The LPS Summer Program (EYP) is designed to maintain progress and prevent substantial regression through structured educational and social experiences. The students benefit from the appropriate academic instruction, teacher directed interactive academic lessons, strategies and accommodations responding to students’ learning styles, skill reinforcement and social skills training through their classes.
For all students the program consists of reading, math, writing, essential speech and OT, social activities, electives and weekly field trips. Middle schools students additionally have social skills groups, and organizational support; while High School students develop transitional /independent living skills development via a volunteer-based work experience, twice a week.
This year, the LPS Summer Program will operate from Monday, July 11 through Friday, July 29, running Monday through Friday from 8:00am to 2:00pm. Our fully in-person program will maintain COVID safety measures including mask wearing and social distancing and as always, we will continue to follow the state COVID safety protocols.
Registration for the Summer Program will be open in the coming weeks so be on the lookout. We hope to see many returning and new faces around campus this July!
