Elementary School - Online Resources
All of these subscription databases and services can be accessed from school without the need to log in. From home, however, you will need to use a login name and/or password for most of them. LCPS students are given a printed brochure each year containing this information, and it's available on the district's intranet web site under Instruction->Instructional Services->Technology and Library Resource. You can also ask your school Librarian or TRT and they'll be happy to tell you.
