As we prepare for the upcoming virtual school year, it is important to follow these best practices.  To assist with preparing FCPSOn devices remotely, students who have a laptop at home should do the following once per week beginning in August

1.    Plug the device into an outlet.

2.    Turn the device on and let it boot up.

3.    Ensure that the laptop is connected to the internet.

4.    Let the device sit for 30 minutes. No additional action is required.

5.    Do this once per week to ensure the laptop has the latest updates. 

If you cannot remember last year’s password, it can be recovered, managed and changed by clicking on this link:

Registration information for the September 23rd SAT will be shared in the coming weeks once details are finalized.  However, in order to meet the August 25th ordering deadline and begin planning the administration of the test, we ask all seniors to respond no later than COB August 24th  by signing into their account and completing the 1 question survey (found here: as to whether or not they wish to take the SAT on September 23.  All “non responses” to the email will default to not taking the test.

Counselor Alpha Redistribution

Every several years it is necessary for us to re-distribute the caseloads of our school counselors.  Those students impacted received an email last week and were followed up with their ‘new’ counselor.  Due to the important role that school counselors play in the part of students, we recognize that this shift is no small one.  However, in order to maintain a manageable caseload for counselors and support their ability to serve each child, this shift is necessary.  That being said, while the alpha shift will occur for all students, we fully recognize that seniors in particular may wish to remain connected to their previous counselor as they navigate the post-secondary planning process this fall, which we are happy to oblige.  Please note the new alpha breakdown for students below.


Registering or Withdrawing from School

Registration: Parents will need to complete the registration paperwork that is available online and reach out to the registrar, Mary Gratz via email.   Families will be contacted via email or phone for the next steps in the registration process.

Withdrawal: If you need to withdraw your student from Langley for the 2020-21 school year, please contact McLean Registrar, Mary Gratz, who will schedule a time/date to return the school issued laptop, complete a withdrawal form and other learning materials.

Records Request: If a family has a transcript or records requests, they should email the registrar throughout the summer.

The Courtyard Has Trees! 

When students (eventually!) return to Langley, a greener courtyard awaits! Wheat's just completed Phase 1 of the main courtyard landscaping project, which includes an abundance of trees, shrubs, and plants. Many thanks to the hundreds of Langley families who donated a leaf to the Langley Legacy Tree to support the project.  


If you haven't yet donated, now's your chance! We still have an empty Science Courtyard that needs landscaping. Donate a leaf to the Langley Legacy Tree, the beautiful wall sculpture that is "growing" in Langley’s lobby (across from the main office). The Legacy Tree is a permanent and prominent record of generous courtyard contributors. Choose your engraved message — leaves make wonderful tributes to students, teachers, family and friends! Giving levels are copper leaf ($50), silver leaf ($100), gold leaf ($200) and acorn or bird ($500). Click on and look for the Legacy Tree article to donate your tree leaves/acorns/birds.
