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. The deadline for request submissions is Friday, March 19, 2021 at 3:00 p.m.

Spring Break Travel

Spring break is just around the corner. Here are some tips to be aware of as families and FCPS staff make plans:

  • Virginia Department of Health (VDH) urges all Virginians to avoid non-essential travel, especially if you are at higher risk of serious COVID-19 or if you will be visiting someone at higher risk of serious COVID-19. This recommendation applies to everyone, even if you have been vaccinated against COVID-19 or have fully recovered from COVID-19.
  • FCPS does not currently have travel restrictions. Students are not required to quarantine or provide COVID 19 test results for either domestic or international travel. Parents may opt to keep their students at home for 14 days after they return from travel, however, it is not required.
  • Per the Student Health and Safety Guidance Document, a Daily Health Screening Questionnaire will be required for all students attending in-person instruction. These daily health screening questionnaires will be completed on an honor basis and will not be required to be submitted to the school.

Any student, staff or visitor demonstrating symptoms of illness is asked to stay home to help “Stop the Spread” of COVID-19. Updates and information is here:

Action Requested: Help save trees and FCPS $$ on postage by opting in to receive “Paperless” Report Cards (that can be printed through ParentVUE)

Parents/Guardians may opt into “Go Paperless” for report cards by following the below instructions:

  • Parents/Guardians can take advantage of the paperless option, by logging into ParentVUE, then going to “My Account” and selecting "Go Paperless!". This is the only way to keep a paper report card from being generated for students at the secondary level. All parents who share the same address as the student must have a SIS ParentVUE account and must select the paperless option.

Buy a Leaf for the Courtyard

Buy a leaf -- or more -- for the Courtyard Legacy Tree fundraiser! We still have an empty Science Courtyard that needs landscaping.   

To fund the project, donate a leaf to the Langley Legacy Tree, the beautiful wall sculpture that is "growing" in the Langley 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). To donate your tree leaves/acorns/birds, click on the Langley PTSA homepage and scroll down to the Legacy Tree article. Questions? Email

From the PTSA
Help improve Schoology! To prepare for the system-wide rollout in the next school year, through the FCCPTA, FCPS is requesting additional input from the 17 Schoology Pilot Schools. PTA leaders (one per school) meet with FCPS on the evening of Tuesday, March 23rd. Please give your input! The more feedback FCPS receives, the more it benefits all children. FCPS has given us a list of survey questions. Please use this Google Form to send us your answers by 5pm on March 22nd.

Ask your student(s) to help in this effort too, by attending a confidential 20-30 minute focus group session at 3pm on April 19th. Please fill out this form in advance to participate.
