Interesting article on how Loudoun is (kind of) trailing behind other counties; Here is an article from Sun Gazette. Some of those assertions (aka, facts) are troubling a bit. I know of a few folks who are doing very well with home schooling, yet they just pay as much for county taxes. They are not only taking burden off of our schools, their kids are doing much better both academically and even socially. Why are those families getting penalized (still they pay taxes, instead of getting additional financial help).
School season just started, all of us busy with everything from dropping kids at school to managing work. Could you find a proper day care? Any second thoughts?? I thought it is beneficial to lots of folks, if I include a day care providers list. Note that this web site makes NO recommendations, as usual check before you decide. Click here
In less than a year, Brambleton is expected to see yet another brand new elementary school. Located at Creighton’s corner (some where close to Creighton Road ?), this will be very convenient to folks living in the vicinity. Not that many details available, however this link talks more about this project. Its street address and map location is here.
Now I am a bit confused about exact location of this building. This is about the same place where Rosa Lee Carter elementary school is coming up! They also maintain their own school district coverage. Interestingly, Washington Post says there is one more middle school planned for Aldie, expected to be open in a couple of years (You may need to register to login and see this news item).
Like all major projects, this school delivery is delayed too. I am sure weather played no role in its delay (rain is not a contributing factor for sure). Road connecting new section of Loudoun County Parkway with Ryan Road is not patched up yet. Look at earlier posting for exact location of this school. Here are some more details. Looks like this project is costing at least $17 million to build. Here is school site layout. Looks like there is a walk path from other Toll Brothers community on Old Ox Road (Overlook community), not sure if there is any road connecting this school to this community.
Washington post developed a pretty nice web site for Loudoun County. Take a look, covers quite a lot of community activities, social matters, news, and lot more stuff. This is developed over six months, with active support from journalists. It includes traffic info (cool cameras on Route 28, etc). Look at additional blog sites mentioned on their site here.
