Did You Know… According to Harvard Medical “Sleep and mental health are closely connected. Sleep deprivation affects your psychological state and mental health. And those with mental health problems are more likely to have insomnia or other sleep disorders.” Click here to read how  psychiatric conditions such as ADHD, depression, bipolar and anxiety can affect sleep.


Spirit Week!

Class of 2021 - Service Hours 

According to FCPS, service hours should be uploaded into x2Vol by May 1, 2021.  Information on how to upload hours and applications for Seals can be found on the LHS website at Seniors, Class of 2021 Service Learning Information.

Please remember: Service learning is NOT mandatory in Fairfax County Public Schools so this process is not intended to add any last minute stress to our senior students.  But if students have the verified and approved hours, and want to apply for a Service Cord, Civic Seal, or STEM Seal, please see the LHS website for information.  Questions?  Please contact Betsy Shomaker at

Grading Policy Changes for HIGH SCHOOL

Prior to Spring Break, Dr. Brabrand also released updated end-of-year grading policies. That letter can be found in its entirety here

Key options for high school students are:

  • Use of No Mark (NM) instead of F grades for all courses. In these cases,students would not have an F factored into their GPA. A “NM” would appear on the transcript in lieu of an F.  However, they would still be required to retake the course if it was a graduation requirement. The course could be taken over the summer, if offered, or the following school year. In addition, students would not be permitted to move on to the next level of a course if the “NM” is not rectified. 
  • Final Exam flexibility that ensures an exam can only serve to improve a student’sgrade for the year. Collaborative teams will discuss if a final exam opportunity will  be made available to students.  If a final exam is offered, it can only serve to improve a student’s grade, not hinder it. 
  • Allowing students/families to choose a mark of “P” (pass) instead of passing letter grades (C’s or D’s for example) as their final mark for up to two courses. Families who wish to pursue this option must turn in thisform to the Student Services Department by May 10, 2021. Any families who want to learn more about the impact of a “P” for college acceptance, NCAA clearinghouse, or other matters can visit the Secondary Grading and Reporting website FAQ portion found here.

If you are interested in one or more of the options above, please reach out to your student’s counselor to further discuss.  

SAVE THE DATE for Langley High School Virtual Summer Math Camp! Mark your calendars now for July 5th-16th and July 19th -30th for two great weeks of summer math camp offerings! More details on registration will follow soon, but here's a glimpse... These sessions will tentatively be held from 9am – 1pm each day. The Math Camp is designed to prepare students for the math course they will be taking during the 2021-2022 school year.  We offer four different camps, with each offering classes in Algebra 1, Geometry, Algebra 2, and Pre-Calculus. Students should sign up for the class that they will be taking during the coming year.  The two-week course is designed to introduce students to their upcoming curriculum and reinforce crucial prerequisite knowledge. Langley Math Teacher will be leading these sessions.    Please complete the Math Camp Interest Form no later than 5/14/2021 to help us with our planning. 

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.
