Summer Residential Governor’s School Application Information (10th and 11th grade students)

The Summer Residential Governor's Schools (SRGS) are month-long residential programs for current year tenth- and eleventh-grade gifted students in the Commonwealth of Virginia.  Governor’s School is a challenging and enriching Virginia program designed for highly motivated students who are looking for a challenging summer experience.  The selection process is extremely competitive. Most students selected rank in the top 10% of their class and have scored in the 90th percentile on standardized measures of ability or achievement tests. These residential programs run from late June to late July. Only students who are available during that time frame and whose records match these criteria should apply.

Students interested in applying to the 2021 Virginia Summer Residential Governor’s (SRGS) programs must complete the academic or the visual and performing arts interest form no later than November 9, 2020. No late applications are accepted.

The Academic Interest Form is available for the Schools for Humanities, Math/Science/Technology, Medicine/Health, Agriculture, Engineering, and Marine Science.

The Visual and Performing Arts Interest Form is available for the dance, instrumental music, theatre, visual art, and vocal music programs.

Additional information about the SRGS programs, application process, and timelines are found online.

Please use the links above for access and info.  Any questions can be directed to Mr. Tim Ready at tjready@fcps.edu.

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.

Congratulate your graduating student by creating a SENIOR AD for the yearbook.

Our deadline - OCT. 24, 2020 - is just 4 weeks away!

Designing an ad for the yearbook has never been easier. Create and pay online.

Forum: Parenting in the Pandemic

Over 70 percent of kids nationwide have reported struggling with mental health during the pandemic. What's worse, polling shows they're often keeping these issues to themselves. The Langley PTSA is hosting a virtual presentation to help parents help their kids through this pandemic on Thurs, Nov 12 at 12-1 pm.

Featured will be McLean-based psychotherapist Jennifer Weaver, who will provide insight into the range of heightened challenges, including depression, loneliness, lack of motivation, anxiety, and lack of impulse control, that teens are facing during this pandemic. She'll offer guidance on how parents can support them during this difficult time.

Mark your calendars and click here to join the presentation on Nov 12!

Keep Your Laptop Healthy

Never leave laptops plugged in and unsupervised for long periods of time, like overnight.  It is best to always use laptops on surfaces that allow for proper ventilation like a desk or table. Prolonged charging and limited ventilation can damage the battery, the operating systems and cause the machine to shut down completely.

Additional Tips:

  • Shut down the laptop every day after use
  • Use and store the laptop in an area that is free from dust, extreme heat, cold, or humidity
  • Restart the laptop several times per week.

Keep Your Laptop Healthy

Never leave laptops plugged in and unsupervised for long periods of time, like overnight.  It is best to always use laptops on surfaces that allow for proper ventilation like a desk or table. Prolonged charging and limited ventilation can damage the battery, the operating systems and cause the machine to shut down completely.

Additional Tips:

  • Shut down the laptop every day after use
  • Use and store the laptop in an area that is free from dust, extreme heat, cold, or humidity
  • Restart the laptop several times per week.

SAT Administration 

A huge THANK YOU to the administration, staff and students on their efforts for a successful SAT day! 

Did You Know...Hand sanitizers have been around for years and several contain a high percentage of alcohol. Please read labels and be careful what you are purchasing for your family.  In addition, The FDA Commissioner Stephen M. Hahn is quoted as saying “I am increasingly concerned about hand sanitizer being packaged to appear to be consumable products, such as baby food or beverages. These products could confuse consumers into accidentally ingesting a potentially deadly product. It’s dangerous to add scents with food flavors to hand sanitizers which children could think smells like food, eat and get alcohol poisoning.

Message from the Principal

GovDelivery 1 month 1 week ago

Greetings Saxon families,

I hope this communication finds each of you well. Our school year has gotten off to a tremendous start. During this week, I’ve had the pleasure of visiting a number of classrooms and have been delighted with the high level of student engagement. Our students and teachers are to be commended for their efforts.

As the year is now underway, below is information you may find useful.

Mondays

Teacher Office Hours - 8:30 a.m.- 11:30 a.m.

Students will access teachers through course links provided in Schoology. Students may access teachers for assistance. If a student is struggling academically, the teacher may require him/her to meet during office hours.

Students should complete asynchronous assignments. Weekly assignments are located within teachers’ course Schoology sites in folders labeled either Weekly Assignments or Unit Assignments.

Asynchronous Assignments

As shared during town halls and Friday 45 meetings held in August, students in standard level and honors courses will be assigned a maximum of 60 minutes of asynchronous work per week. For advanced level courses, the maximum amount of time needed for a typical student to complete asynchronous assignments should be no more than 75 minutes. It is expected that the bulk of assignments be assigned so they may be completed on Mondays.

Back to School Night

Our Back to School Night event will be held virtually. Schoolwide recordings will be sent on Monday, September 21 at 6 p.m. The communication will also provide directions for accessing student courses.

9/11

On this somber day, we took time in Saxon Country to remember the victims of the attacks. Below is the information shared with students at the start of the school day. The video may be accessed here.

 

Thank you all for your ongoing support and partnership.

Wishing you wellness,

Kimberly Greer

Underclass Collection of School Issued Items:

WE NEED YOUR HELP! As we are preparing for the start of the school year, we must have course materials available for students. Student textbooks, and other school issued items (excluding laptops), must be returned before we can distribute course materials. Please make plans to drop off any outstanding school items you may have on Wednesday, September 9, from 12:00 p.m. - 6:00 p.m. Your assistance and partnership is greatly appreciated. 

Items should arrive in a paper bag with the students’ name, ID number, and bag contents listed on a sheet affixed to the bag. Please enter via the main parking lot entrance and proceed to entrance #12. 

For everyone’s safety, we ask that masks be worn for drop off and prior to arrival, the bag should be placed in the vehicle trunk for retrieval.

Langley offers onsite SAT to all seniors

On Wednesday, September 23, 2020, Langley High School twelfth graders will have the opportunity to take the SAT School Day test. FCPS will cover the cost for any twelfth grade student to take the SAT. The optional essay component and subject tests will not be offered on this date.

To assist in planning for this test administration and FCPS bus transportation needs, families are asked to complete the intention to test form by COB Monday, August 31. Only those students wishing to test should complete the form. The intention form and a translated version of the form content may be found on the SAT School Day Intent webpage.

General information about the SAT test format is available on the College Board webpage. September 23 has been designated for asynchronous learning, so students who choose to take the SAT will not miss synchronous learning time with their teachers.

We will share more details about test day schedules, bus transportation, and specific safety protocols in the coming weeks. Final confirmation of SAT School Day testing will be based on health department guidance in September.

If you have questions about the SAT School Day administration, please contact Janice Dabroski at jldabroski@fcps.edu

Schoology Parent Resources

Hello Langley! In spite of all the chaos, here's a chance for you to express yourself and be creative for a day. The PTSA Reflections contest is on and all digital.  This year's theme is, "I Matter Because..."

Please consider sharing your artistic side with this contest. The due date is October 7, so the last week of summer is a perfect time to create something.  Categories are: Dance, Film Production, Music Composition, Literature, Photography, and Visual Arts. 

See https://www.vapta.org/programs/arts-and-education/reflections-top for guidelines, category rules, and to see some winners from last year.  Sending in your art has never been easier! We will do everything via DropBox and email. 

Interested? Any questions? Email Sara Koenig at langleyreflections@gmail.com

The Courtyard Has Trees! 

When students (eventually!) return to Langley, a greener courtyard awaits! Wheat's just completed Phase 1 of the main courtyard landscaping project, which includes an abundance of trees, shrubs, and plants. Many thanks to the hundreds of Langley families who donated a leaf to the Langley Legacy Tree to support the project.  

If you haven't yet donated, now's your chance! We still have an empty Science Courtyard that needs landscaping. Donate a leaf to the Langley Legacy Tree, the beautiful wall sculpture that is "growing" in Langley’s 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).

Message from the Principal

Having trouble viewing this email? View it as a Web page.

Greetings Saxons,

Welcome to the 2020-21 school year! I hope the summer has provided each of you an opportunity for rest and reconnection with family and friends. As we continue to deal with the uncertainty created by the pandemic, it has become even more necessary that we focus on caring for one another and strengthening relationships.

While the halls of our beloved school remain empty and void of the usual sense of excitement and anticipation which normally accompany the start of a new school year, our staff members are busy preparing to welcome your sons and daughters. Since August 14, teachers have been engaged in collaborative meetings; professional development trainings and review of course content in order to ensure we are ready to meet the challenge of virtual learning on September 8.

In anticipation of the first day of school, there are a number of items of which you need to be aware. Student schedules will be available in StudentVue and ParentVue the morning of September 2.  

As previously shared, Langley is piloting the Schoology learning management platform this school year. Students and parents will have access to the site beginning September 2. An overview of Schoology will be provided during a Langley town hall on September 2, 3:30-4:30 pm. The meeting link will be provided the morning of the event.

On September 3, Langley will host a virtual orientation for all students from 9am-10:36 am. This will provide an opportunity for students to practice accessing their classes prior to September 8. It will also give teachers a chance to welcome students before the first day of school. Detailed log information will be given closer to the event date.

Please visit the Return to School page on the Langley HS website for school opening information and links to school forms.  

Again, I welcome you to a new school year. Please know, we are committed to providing each student a rich learning environment where every member of our school community is welcome and valued.

Wishing you wellness,

Parents, We Need Your Consent for Select Digital Resources

At Langley High School, 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: https://langleyhs.fcps.edu/adopteddigitalresources

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 students teacher if you have questions or concerns about the digital resources they have chosen to use this year.

Every several years it is necessary for us to re-distribute the caseloads of our school counselors.  Those students impacted received an email last week and were followed up with their ‘new’ counselor.  Due to the important role that school counselors play in the part of students, we recognize that this shift is no small one.  However, in order to maintain a manageable caseload for counselors and support their ability to serve each child, this shift is necessary.  That being said, while the alpha shift will occur for all students, we fully recognize that seniors in particular may wish to remain connected to their previous counselor as they navigate the post-secondary planning process this fall, which we are happy to oblige.  Please note the new alpha breakdown for students below.

Registering or Withdrawing from School

Registration: Parents will need to complete the registration paperwork that is available online and reach out to the registrar, Mary Gratz via email.   Families will be contacted via email or phone for the next steps in the registration process.

Withdrawal: If you need to withdraw your student from Langley for the 2020-21 school year, please contact McLean Registrar, Mary Gratz, who will schedule a time/date to return the school issued laptop, complete a withdrawal form and other learning materials.

Records Request: If a family has a transcript or records requests, they should email the registrar throughout the summer.

The Courtyard Has Trees! 

When students (eventually!) return to Langley, a greener courtyard awaits! Wheat's just completed Phase 1 of the main courtyard landscaping project, which includes an abundance of trees, shrubs, and plants. Many thanks to the hundreds of Langley families who donated a leaf to the Langley Legacy Tree to support the project.  

If you haven't yet donated, now's your chance! We still have an empty Science Courtyard that needs landscaping. Donate a leaf to the Langley Legacy Tree, the beautiful wall sculpture that is "growing" in Langley’s 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). Click on ptsalangley.org and look for the Legacy Tree article to donate your tree leaves/acorns/birds. Questions Email chrissielavin1@gmail.com
