Did you know…In July of 2019 SAMSHA released a memo to address those testing positive for THC in the workplace after reporting the use of CBD. “Studies have shown that some CBD products’ labeling does not accurately reflect their content Cannabis based products containing THC. “

CBD is not regulated and the amounts of THC is unclear. Here is the full memo.

Langley's Legacy Tree is Growing! 

Drop by Langley's lobby, across from the main office, to see the start of the Legacy Tree. While the tree is still a work in progress, it already looks beautiful! Thanks to all of the generous Legacy Tree donors who have made the renovation of the first of Langley's three courtyards possible.  

We still have two more courtyards to renovate this spring. If you haven't already done so, consider helping to "grow" the Legacy Tree by donating a leaf (copper $50, silver $100, gold $200) or bird or acorn ($500). You choose the engraved message. The Legacy Tree will be permanent, prominent record of courtyard contributors and a lasting legacy for Langley and your family. Leaves also make great tributes to teachers, friends, coaches, and grads!
To order your leaf -- or leaves! -- visit the PTSA website. Questions? Email

As SOL testing approaches, please remember that students may not use personal devices on SOL tests. Students should be sure to restart their FCPSOn laptop at school weekly so that the computer can install key updates. Juniors should start bringing their FCPSOn laptops to school the last week of February so that staff may ensure that their FCPSOn laptops are compliant for SOL Testing.

Eating disorders are behaviors that can lead to serious health problems. These behaviors can begin as a child, and affect both girls and boys. When discovered early, eating disorders are treatable. In 2013, Virginia passed a law requiring every school system provide information to parents annually about eating disorders. This information is given to parents of students in the fifth through twelfth grades.

It is important to note that eating disorders are not identified based on weight changes as much as behaviors and attitudes. Signs of eating disorders may differ between males and females and in different age groups. Often, a young person may not recognize the signs that they might have an eating disorder. Parents/guardians and family members are in a position to notice behaviors that cause concern. It is important that a child with an eating disorder be treated early by someone who understands this type of care.

After reviewing the Eating Disorders Fact Sheet, if you think your child may be showing signs of a possible eating disorder, please contact your doctor, school nurse, or one of the resources listed below.

Super Transition Saturday

On Saturday, February 22, 2020, Career and Transition Services (CTS), the FCPS Parent Resource Center, and several Fairfax County adult service providers will host “Super Transition Saturday” from 9:00 a.m. to 12:15 p.m. at Luther Jackson Middle School. This is a free event for parents/guardians and educators of students of all ages with IEPs. Breakout sessions will cover postsecondary education support, the importance of student self-determination beginning in the elementary years, employment support programs, future planning considerations, such as funding needed for services, and CTS support services that are available to students as they progress through the secondary years toward graduation and beyond. A highlight of the day is a parent/guardian and student panel representing a range of challenges and successes. Members of the panel will convey personal experiences and answer parent/guardian and student questions from their perspectives of having been through the transition process. The snow date is March 14, 2020
