Welcome to Ledyard Public Schools

Superintendent Hartling

The closing of the 2021-2022 school year was filled with special events, including the Pre-K, Grades 5th and 8th moving up and award ceremonies, culminating with the graduation of Ledyard High School class of 2022. Congratulations to these young adults and to their proud families! Hearing the speeches, the one thing that struck me was the resilient spirit in our students; a spirit nurtured by their families, loved ones, LPS staff and our community.  

This summer we will continue to offer students various ways to continue building upon their academic successes.  We are excited to provide three summer enrichment and community centered initiatives:

1) The Digital Olympics

2) Open Library Nights

3) Ledyard Farmers Market and Free Book Giveaways 

Each Wednesday (starting June 22nd) from 4 pm-7 pm, Mr. Nick and Mrs. Armstrong will be at the Ledyard Farmers Market. As part of our reading initiative we will once again have free book giveaways. The book titles will match the weekly "market theme" as we support our young readers with new and exciting reading materials. There is nothing like getting a new book! In addition to the free book giveaways, families are encouraged to stop by to inquire about The Digital Olympics and enjoy the excellent food, music, or shopping the market offers!

Please visit our website for additional learning opportunities in Reading and Math.

If you are new to Ledyard please register your student as soon as possible so we can plan accordingly. The new school year will also mark the end of the Federal/State funding for universal free meals at our schools. Families in need of assistance with breakfast and lunch should fill out the Free and Reduced Lunch Form available on our website online  or by contacting the school. 

The first day of the new school year will be September 1.
