Message from the Principal

GovDelivery1 week 4 days ago

Greetings Saxons,

It has been an amazing week in Saxon Country! Our homecoming football game against Oakton proved to be a nail biter with our team winning with a touchdown made in the final minute of the game.  Congratulations to our outstanding team! The excitement continued with the homecoming dance held on Saturday. Over 1300 tickets were sold for the big event. Students had a wonderful time; it was great to see them dressed to impressed for the occasion.

As you are aware, our Back to School Night event was held on Wednesday evening. What a delight to host this event in person for the first time since 2019. A tremendous thank you to our teachers and staff  for their efforts in making the night a success. If you didn’t have a chance to attend, please visit your student’s teacher’s Schoology site to view course videos.

With almost one month of the school year completed, our students are definitely in the groove of school. As we have found our rhythm, your assistance is needed. To minimize disruption of the school day, food deliveries aren’t allowed during school hours. Also, when students are ill during the school day, they should report to the health room instead of directly calling a parent. This will ensure proper care and provide accurate attendance reporting. Thank you for your assistance.

Thank you for your ongoing partnership and support.

Fondly,

Greetings Saxons,

So, how do you top a four day weekend? By having homecoming week begin the day after Labor Day! We have had a time in Saxon Country this week thanks to our homecoming events. Many of our students participated in the spirit week. It was great to see many dressed to match the day’s theme. The school week concluded with a pep rally this morning. Thanks to our leadership students for planning this week’s events!

We look forward to seeing everyone at this evening’s homecoming game. We wish our football team the best of luck as they take on the Oakton Cougars. Our homecoming festivities will conclude tomorrow evening with the dance from 8:00 p.m.-10:30 p.m.

Highlights from today’s pep rally…


Our band shared a portion of their half time show!


Cheerleaders showed their Saxon spirit with a great routine!


The dance team’s moves were on point!


There’s nothing like tug of war. Congratulations to the Science and Math departments who reigned supreme over the English and Social Studies departments.


Saxon spirit all the way! 

I wish each of you a phenomenal weekend.

Fondly,

Newsletters:

As we begin the 2022-23 school year, public schools nationwide face a growing student wellness crisis. Our students' wellness challenges impact their ability to perform at their best in the classroom and may lead to other destructive behaviors. 

In Northern Virginia, the opioid epidemic continues to impact communities including young adults, and sometimes school-age children. Tragically, this can lead to devastating outcomes. There are three things you can do now, to support student wellness and increase understanding of the dangers of opioids and fentanyl:

  • Talk with children and loved ones in your life about the dangers of drug use, especially opioids. For more information, tips on how to recognize and prevent substance abuse, and available support services, watch this webinar.
  • Safely store and dispose of medications to prevent drug misuse.
  • Sign up for a Virtual REVIVE! training class to learn how to recognize the signs and symptoms of opioid overdose and administer naloxone nasal spray to reverse an opioid overdose.

Learn more about the dangers of opioids and available resources on our website. Visit the Student Safety and Wellness webpage for more information about a variety of topics related to student wellbeing.

Jen Zamzow, Ph.D from Psychology Today writes- “Have you ever started out the school year excited for all the memories you’ll make with your kids, only to find yourself barely hanging on by Christmas?

Greetings Saxons,

This first week of school has flown by in a whirlwind of finding new classes, meeting new teachers and friends and reconnecting with classmates. Smiles have been bright and the positive energy palpable within the building. The 2022-23 school year has gotten off to a fabulous start!

Our year started off with a bang by being featured on Channel 7 news on Monday morning. A huge shout out to the band, cheer, dance, leadership students, and staff who showed up for festivities. Also, a huge thank you to Otto, our school mascot, for making an appearance on what was one of the muggiest mornings of the year.

The broadcast was a phenomenal way to kick off the first day of school, although the 6 a.m. start made for a very long day for students and teachers.

As we look forward to a wonderful second week of school, I ask for your help with the following:

  • Please help your student adhere to the 7:40 a.m. opening of the building. To ensure student safety, students arriving before this time will not be allowed to enter the building
  • Please remind your student that cell phone use is not allowed in restrooms or locker rooms except for emergencies

I hope everyone will be able to make it to our varsity football team’s home opener this evening. Kickoff is at 7 p.m. If your student is planning to attend, please remind them that neither backpacks/bags nor outside food and drinks are allowed. Also, if your student is attending, thank you for making sure their transportation is onsite by 9 p.m. for pick-up. This will ensure a timely departure for staff working the game.

Have a fabulous weekend,

Student Laptops for 2022-2023 School Year

Langley HS provides each student a laptop through FCPSOn. FCPSOn is a transformation of learning for students and educators. At its core, it provides students with equitable access to meaningful learning experiences and technology to support their learning. Visit the FCPSOn information page to learn more. Students will be able to pick up their school-issued laptop on the first or second day of school in their English class.

This year, families have the option to opt out of taking an FCPS device if they would like their child to bring their own device (BYOD). Families must indicate this choice in SIS. Read more about BYOD in FCPS.

Families, We Need Your Consent for Select Digital Resources

At Langley, our teachers will use a variety of digital resources to support student learning and promote communication and collaboration with students and families. Some of the digital resources your child may use this year will require your consent before they can be used. You can find our school’s list of the resources that require parental consent here. Additionally, you can find more information about approved digital resources in FCPS here: https://www.fcps.edu/resources/technology/digital-resources.

Included on this page is also a link to a form where the enrolling parent or guardian will need to indicate whether or not their student is allowed to use the list of digital resources this year. This page also provides more information about how FCPS carefully reviews digital resources for approval and why we must request your consent before using certain tools. We encourage you to complete the parental consent for digital resources form as soon as possible, as your child will not be able to use the digital resources until we have received your permission. Please reach out to your child’s teachers if you have questions or concerns about the digital resources we’ve chosen to use this year.

Message from the Principal

GovDelivery1 month 1 week ago

Greetings Saxons,

Welcome to the 2022-23 School Year. As we prepare to start the new year, teachers and staff are eagerly awaiting the return of students to the building. Many hours of work and preparation have been put in to ensure a fantastic start to the school year for each student. We will kick off the school year bright and early on Monday in Saxon Country. WJLA, Channel 7, will broadcast from our school beginning at 5:00 a.m. Be sure to tune in to see our spectacular students and staff!

As students return to Langley, there are some items to keep in mind.

  • Bus transportation continues to be impacted by the driver shortage. Many of our students will be on routes which require a double-back run. FCPS continues to work to hire additional drivers.
  • Construction on Georgetown Pike/495 may impact traffic during the school day. Work is scheduled daily 8 a.m.-3p.m. Please plan accordingly if you will dropping off your student.
  • Only seniors with a driver’s license and no outstanding school obligations will be eligible to purchase parking permits
    • We are working to determine how many spaces may be available for junior drivers. Please be patient as we work through this process.
  • Please keep your student home if they aren’t feeling well. While learning is important, we must do all we can to keep our student body well.
    • When your student is absent, or if they need to arrive late or leave early, please follow the procedures outlined on the  attendance page of the school website.
  • Please remind your student of the updated expectations related to cell phone usage during the school day.
    • Students in grades 9-12: Phones must be silenced and put away during all instructional periods. Phone accessories are also to be silenced and away when phone use is prohibited. Smart watches that serve a dual purpose may be worn, but the phone features (texting, Internet viewing, and calls) are to be off when phone use is prohibited. Phones can be stored in a locker or backpack during the day. Students are prohibited from using phones, tablets, and other mobile devices in restrooms and locker rooms, unless there is a medical necessity or emergency.  Teachers may allow usage of cell phones for instructional activities when appropriate. Cell phones may be used on campus before the first bell, after the last bell, during passing periods, and lunches.
  • Student cafeteria pin number were mailed to families earlier this week. Please ensure your student has this information so if they plan to purchase a meal on Monday, they may do so in an expedient manner.

So, now that we’ve gotten the reminders out of the way, I would like to officially welcome our freshmen and transfer families to Langley High School. We are thrilled that you’re here. We will do all we can to ensure that your student has a phenomenal high school experience. We look forward to meeting you and getting to know you over the course of the school year. If there’s anything that you or your student needs, please don’t hesitate to reach out.

It was wonderful to welcome new students to Saxon Country during yesterday’s orientations. Thank you to all of the students, staff, parents and coaches who helped to make them an overwhelming success. We hope students and families found the event helpful. Here are a few pictures from the events.

Have a great weekend and get some rest. We’re starting a school year that will be filled with fun, adventure many positive experiences for our students. It’s going to be great!

Fondly,

School Health Room Information 

Dear Parent/Guardian,

The safety of your student is a priority for us.  This school year, we are changing some medication protocols to help ensure the safety of our medication administration management in Fairfax County Public Schools. These changes include:

  • Any time you drop off or pick up a medication in the health room, a Medication Delivery/Pick Up Form will be completed and signed by both the parent/guardian and the School Health Aide or FCPS staff member. This form will document that all required authorizations are complete, and the number of pills or amount of medication accepted/returned. A copy of the form will be given to the parent/guardian and school administrator.
  • Medications received will be verified to ensure the description of the medication on the container/packaging matches the medication in the container.
  • All medications must be in the original pharmacy container. Over the counter (OTC) medications must be in an unopened original container. It will no longer be acceptable for parents/guardians to bring in refills from home and place them into the container currently in the health room.
  • Only a 30-day supply of medications should be brought to school. No more than 100 tablets or pills of OTC medication should be brought to school.

All requirements outlined in FCPS Regulation 2102, First Aid, Emergency Treatment and Administration of Medication for Students, continue to apply.  We appreciate your support in implementing these new safety practices.  Should you have any questions or concerns, please contact me at 571-722-5780 or the School Health Aide Bronwen Fleming at 703-287-2710 or [email protected].

Sincerely,

Mary Joan Shea

Fairfax County Health Department, School Public Health Nurse

Greetings from your School Health Room!

Our goal is to ensure that your student will enjoy a healthful, safe school year.  Please read the following information carefully, and if you have any questions feel free to call your School Health Aide, Bronwen Fleming, at 703-287-2710 or your School Public Health Nurse, Mary Joan Shea, RN, at 571-722-5780.

The health room will be open to drop-off of medications on Thursday, August 18 from 9:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m. or may be dropped off after the start of school Monday – Friday from 8:00 a.m. – 2:45 p.m.

Your School Health Room services include:

  1. Care of sick and injured students according to school guidelines.
  2. Hearing and vision screening (grades K, 3, 7, 10, new to FCPS schools and those students referred by teachers and parents).
  3. Administration of care for students with identified problems/conditions during the school day.
  4. Coordination of care for students with identified problems/conditions during the school day.

How can you help your School Health Room provide the best possible care?

  • Advise the School Health Aide of any special health concerns.
  • Immediately notify the PE teacher if your child has any PE restrictions.
  • Provide current home, work, and alternate telephone numbers for the Emergency Care Information form. Generally, a student may remain in the clinic for 15 minutes.  After that, if he or she is still feeling ill, parents will be called to take the student home.
  • Keep sick children home. It is difficult to concentrate or do schoolwork when not feeling well.
  • Children who have fevers (temperature of 100 degrees), vomiting or diarrhea are not able to stay in school. It is best for children to be at home for 24 hours after these conditions resolve.
  • When medication must be administered during the school day, follow the medication policies.
    • Complete the FCPS Medication Authorization form.
    • Provide the school with properly labeled containers (your pharmacist will usually provide an extra container if you request it).
    • Medications must be transported to and from school by a parent.
    • Medications must be kept in the school Health Room or other school approved location.

Thank you for your cooperation and assistance in helping to make this a safe and healthy school year for all FCPS students.

495 NEXT Project Information 

The 495 NEXT project work on the Georgetown Pike Bridge has started and will affect your Langley HS commute if you use Georgetown Pike. New drivers may want to practice their commute to Langley HS before the first day of school to master the shifted traffic patterns and congestion.

Georgetown Pike Bridge Preparatory Work and Traffic Shift 

In late June, VDOT began preparatory work for the demolition of the northern portion of the 62-year-old Georgetown Pike Bridge over the Capital Beltway. 

Work crews started demolishing the center median of the bridge in late June, and in July they will demolish the median between the bridge and Balls Hill Road. Temporary pavement will be laid where the existing medians were removed. In mid to late July, temporary traffic barrier will be installed along the westbound shoulder and both directions of traffic will be shifted south on the bridge. Temporary traffic signals will be installed to enable the removal of the existing signals. Lane closures in both directions are being implemented during non-peak travel periods (midday and overnight hours) to carry out the work safely and efficiently.

FCPS Reminders: FRM & Immunizations

GovDelivery2 months 2 weeks ago

Dear Langley Families,

Families must submit an application and be approved to be eligible for free and reduced-price meals for the 2022-23 school year.

Interested families are encouraged to submit the Free and Reduced-Price Meal application ten days prior to the first day of the 2022-23 school year. The online application will be available later this summer and accessible via the FCPS homepage.  

Students approved for Free and Reduced-Price Meals may qualify for additional benefits such as waived or reduced fees for instruments, uniforms, field trips, FCPS class fees, and Parktakes classes. Schools also benefit from funding opportunities based on Free and Reduced Price Meal application numbers. 

Watch your email and our website for more information. Learn more about the Free and Reduced-Price Meal program online.

I encourage everyone to Be Wise, Immunize! Immunizations are required for public school entry and help keep children protected from many diseases. Many children missed their well check-ups and their recommended childhood immunizations during recent years of disruptions from COVID-19. It is critical to catch up now to keep children healthy and protect them from serious diseases.

I also encourage you to check with your healthcare provider to make sure your child is up to date on required immunizations for the 2022-23 school year as soon as possible. If your child needs a vaccine to complete their records, you can make an appointment with your healthcare provider or visit the Fairfax County Health Department website for a schedule of child immunization clinics. 

Remember to request documentation of your child’s immunizations and bring that to Langley between the hours of 9:00 a.m. - 1:00 p.m. Monday - Friday or send via email to Mary Gratz at [email protected] 

Thank you,
