what you need to do now 
It's a new LHS policy: Three FCPS forms are REQUIRED for schedule pick-up.

Back-to-School Packets with schedules for students in grades 10-12 will be handed out Thursday and Friday 9-11 am -- but only to those students who bring in three required FCPS forms.

In addition to having up-to-date immunizations and paying any outstanding fines, students must turn in the following forms at the time of packet pick-up:  
  1. A signed Students Rights & Responsibilities (SR&R) signature page
  2. FCPS Participation Policy
  3. Health Information Form
Links to forms can be found on the LHS home page by clicking here. Blank forms will also be available at the package pick-up site.

We wish everyone a fantastic start of the new school year!
you still have one more weekend ...
Have you and your child read your Langley Read choice?

The Langley Read engages students, faculty, and their families in a communal intellectual experience. The Read provides a launching point for discussion on social issues and will be a conduit for service learning opportunities and greater civic engagement.

All Langley students were asked to select one of six books listed below, or a comparable nonfiction book that addresses service to others, and be prepared for school-wide activities, classroom discussion, and a reflective writing exercise. 
* $2 a Day: Living on Almost Nothing in America by Kathryn J. Edin and H. Luke Schaefer  
* Evicted: Poverty and Profit in the American City by Matthew Desmond  
* A Path Appears: Transforming Lives, Creating Opportunity by Nicholas Kristof   
* Blood and Earth: Modern Slavery, Ecocide, and the Secret to Saving the World by Kevin Bales  
* Mountains Beyond Mountains: The Quest of Dr. Paul Farmer, a Man who Would Cure the World by Tracy Kidder  
* Hidden Girl: The True Story of a Modern-Day Child Slave by Shyima Hall

getting to langley
Please encourage your student to take the bus to school.  You should have received an email, as well as a phone call, with the pick-up and drop-off times for your bus stop. If you are unsure of the times, the information can be found on  Blackboard under the heading Bus Stop Information.

If you must drive, please enter the driveway on the east end of the school and exit from the west driveway. Students should be dropped off at Door 1 or Door 4.   Please do not enter the main parking lot, it is for buses, staff and permitted student parking only.
update emergency info online
Parents are asked to update their Emergency Care Information electronically by Sept 6 this year. This is the information that's used in case of emergency, so accuracy is important. To update your form, log in to 24/7 with your SIS log-in, then click on the "weCare@school" link.
