Week 20 Message
It is great to have students back in the building as we restart for the 2nd half of the schoolyear. Our new FoodPrints Fresh Farm Markets Partnership is starting this week with monthly 2-hour lessons for PreK3, Kindergarten, Grade 2, and Grade 4. Please see the updates below for 2018:
New Playworks Coach: We are excited to welcome our new Playworks Coach, Coach J who will be running our recess, Class Game Time, and Junior Coaches’ program. Please join us in welcoming him to Langley.
Inclement Weather – School Cancellations and Delays: Most immediate information regarding school cancellation or closings can be found at the DCPS twitter account (@dcpublicschools). Information will also be shared on the DCPS website (dcps.dc.gov), DCPS social media accounts, and local TV and radio stations. In the case of a delay, school doors will open at 10:15 a.m., with instruction beginning at 10:45 a.m. Further DCPS guidance can be found at https://dcps.dc.gov/page/inclement-weather-guidance.
Cold Weather Recess: As long as the temperature is above freezing, we plan to have students outside for recess, so please make sure students are sent to school with coats, hats and gloves, as needed. If any winter apparel is needed, please let Ms. Staton know. Be sure to check the lost and found in the main entrance foyer and be sure to write your students’ names on coats and other winter apparel.
