FCPS-issued Laptops

As we are now utilizing concurrent learning, please be sure that you are using your FCPS-issued laptop regularly. FCPS laptops are optimized to work on the school network, unlike devices you may be using at home. Additionally, many school programs and tests are required to be run on your FCPS laptop. If you have not been using your FCPS laptop regularly, please begin doing so now to prepare yourself to bring it every day you are in the building. If your laptop requires updates, drive to the nearest FCPS school and turn the laptop on in the parking lot. The laptop will connect to the FCPS network and download important updates. Please submit an IT request if you are having difficulty with your school laptops.

Online vs. In-person Instruction

To view your decision, please be sure to log-in to ParentVue on a computer (the app version on mobile devices does not show this information) and click on the Student Info tab.  Your decision can be found near the bottom of the page. 

If you would like to request a change in your status, please use the link below.  ALL requests MUST be submitted through the link below.  At this time, we are unable to accommodate students moving from online to in-person instruction however, we will create a waitlist to review if/when conditions allow.  Should we be able to accommodate your request, we will follow up with you accordingly.

Donate food items for SHARE of McLean’s spring food drive in the LHS parking lot on Mon, Mar 22, 10:30 am-2:30 pm. Let’s help SHARE and help our neighbors. SHARE is currently supporting over 300 local families with food supplies.

When dropping off items at LHS, look for your grade’s drop-off station in the bus parking lot (and wear a mask). The grade with the most participants and/or donated food items will be recognized! Will the seniors take the crown again?
