CSS Profile and more!

*Between 6:00 PM – 6:30 PM we will have people available in front of the auditorium to assist you with setting up your FSA ID which is needed to complete the FAFSA. A parent and the student must create an FSA ID. You can bring a laptop or do this on your phone. There is a 2-step authentication process so you need to either do it together or be able to reach each other quickly.

Wellness Screening- December 5, 2023  (11th Grade Parents Only)

Mental health problems can develop in adolescence which is full of emotions for teens. Some of these emotions are actually mental illnesses. Depression is among the most common mental illnesses. Depression is treatable; however, it is a leading risk factor for suicide. To proactively address mental illness, Langley High School is providing a mental wellness screening and suicide prevention training as part of the SOS Signs of Suicide Prevention Program.  11th grade parents received an email on November 4th with details regarding this screening and an opt-out link should they wish to do so.  Please contact Tim Ready, school counselor, at with any questions.

Book Talk "Raising a Kid Who Can"

Come join Anna Brown, LHS school psychologist and Jordan Payne, LHS social worker for an engaging parenting conversation.  They will review the book, Raising a Kid Who Can – Simple Strategies to Build a Lifetime of Adaptability and Emotional Strength, written by local clinical professionals.  The book talk will be held in the Lecture Hall on December 13 at 9:30 am. Please RSVP to if you can attend.
