Senior Car Parade
10:00am - Noon
The Class of 2020 parade was so fun and such a joy to watch. Our seniors and their families are the heroes of the day. They stepped up, decorated their cars, and figured out the path for a joyful afternoon. We saw genuine smiles on the faces of our Seniors who earned the right to be celebrated, and we did just that. We cannot thank Robin Svendsen enough for planning and holding such a wonderful event.
Let’s commemorate the event with a video.
Simply click on the link below and upload your photos and any video you took.
For those unable to participate, Sabrina Thomas created this collage of pictures taken in the Langley parking lot at the beginning of the parade.
Conferring of Diplomas & Celebrate!
Families will drive through a designated path through the Langley parking lot. Events include:
Conferring of diplomas, awards, final transcripts
Please sign up for an appointment based on your counselor's alloted time:

Branch of service or Service Academy
If you are receiving an ROTC scholarship, please indicate the branch and University you are attending. In order to include this information in our virtual ceremony, we MUST receive this information by 3:00 PM on Wednesday, June 10th! Thank you for your prompt attention to this matter!

Questions, contact Lisa Kimsey (email@example.com).

Seniors should have picked up these items on June 3rd. If you missed it, you may pickup the items when you pickup your diploma. If you will not be in town for that either, please email Nancy Ayoub (email@example.com) to arrange a time later in the summer to retrieve all items.
Transcripts were sent to colleges for seniors who completed the FCPS Senior Survey by June 1st. If you need additional transcripts in the future, go to
5. Senior Yard Signs
The ANGP committee will contact you directly when your ordered yard signs are back from the printer to arrange for pickup. Questions, contact Kari Lervick (firstname.lastname@example.org).
6. ANGP (All Night Graduation Party, sponsored by LHS PTSA)
In compliance with the governor’s orders and CDC/WHO recommendations, Langley’s ANGP has been cancelled. All ANGP tickets and limo raffle tickets have been refunded via the method the payment was received (i.e. PayPal, check, etc.). If you have not received your refund, please contact Lisa Givens at email@example.com.
7. Class Dues
$70 of the $120 Senior Dues will be refunded by FCPS/LHS in June (if all obligations have been paid). No action needed.
Remaining funds will be used for the benefit of LHS2020, including the Senior Class Gift.
8. Mailing/Shipping items in General
Do NOT expect any organization (LHS, PTSA, FCPS, etc) to mail/ship any items to you or your Senior. All items will be made available for pickup at Langley High School at various times (which are constantly changing). Everyone understands this is not ideal and hopes to be as flexible/reasonable as possible. Please reach out to friends and neighbors to assist your family, as needed. Perhaps an enterprising Senior will create a business if there is a true need for shipping services.
9. Yearbooks and Senior Saxon Scope
Both the Senior Saxon Scope and Yearbook are being printed! We plan to distribute both in June, exact details are TBD. Printed Senior Saxon Scope will be available for all Seniors and on-line for all others (https://www.saxonscope.com/).

11. Parking Tag Refunds
FCPS will refund $50, likely in June. Exact date and mechanism (MySchooBucks vs mailed check is TBD). No action needed.
12. Meal Payments/Cafeteria Funds for your Senior
Meal/Cafeteria Balances in MySchoolBucks: Parents may transfer funds to remaining student in FCPS or request a refund. Everything is much easier if you take action by June 30th.

Students with AP exam counts over six FCPS-funded exams, who have paid the $94 AP exam fee and did NOT login to take their AP exam will be refunded the fees in June. No action required. If students did not pay and did not take/login to the exam, FCPS should have removed the obligation.
Contact Braden Peterson (email@example.com) with additional questions
