  • Last Day of School, Early Release 


Did You Know…The term “Languishing” was coined by a sociologist named Corey Keyes, who was struck that many people who weren’t depressed also weren’t thriving. 

Languishing is a sense of stagnation and emptiness. It feels as if you’re muddling through your days, looking at your life through a foggy windshield. And it might be the dominant emotion of 2021. Here is the full NY Times article.

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.

Nominate a Junior for Outstanding Service Award

Do you know a junior whose dedication to volunteerism is exemplary? The PTSA Awards for Outstanding Service honors Langley juniors who have demonstrated excellent service achievement and an ongoing sense of commitment to a worthy cause at LHS or the community at large. The winners receive a certificate and monetary award. Nominations can be submitted by teachers, peers, parents, coaches, guidance counselors, and club and organization sponsors. Self-nominations are allowed, too! The deadline is Fri, May 7. Click here to nominate a student.


Need a graduation gift? Teacher gift? A thank you to a great coach or mentor? Give a gift that lasts -- a leaf on the Legacy Tree! You choose the perfect engraving! 


The Legacy Tree is growing in Langley's front entrance (across from the office) for all to enjoy for years to come. Donating a leaf (copper $50, silver $100, gold $200) or bird or acorn ($500), is a great way to pay tribute to your favorite people.  

Funds raised will be used to landscape the third (and final!) courtyard in Langley. The more metallic leaves on the Legacy Tree, the more actual leaves there will be in the courtyards. 

To order your leaf -- or leaves! -- visit the PTSA website . Questions? Email .
