Bell schedules across the county will be changing next year to accommodate the switch to earlier start times for high schools, which will start at 8 or 8:10 a.m. and dismiss at 2:45 or 2:55 p.m.; middle schools will start at 7:30 a.m. and end at 2:15 p.m. The elementary schools’ window remains unchanged, with elementary school students beginning their day between 8 and 9:20 a.m.
Lane’s start time will remain the same as this year – 9:15 a.m. Our dismissal time, however, will change slightly to 4 p.m. This extra five minutes is part of a county-wide initiative to make the length of the school day consistent across all schools at 6 hours and 45 minutes per day.

FCPS is currently implementing a new self-registration process that auto-directs devices to a secure, pre-determined network during the registration process. Once connected, students will have access to FCPS resources on their personal devices. Students requiring assistance registering their device should see their school-technology support team.
Student participation in BYOD is governed by the Student Rights and Responsibilities (SR&R) document. Parents and students are required to read and accept the Acceptable Use Policy for Student Network Access within the SR&R document. BYOD permission is now acknowledged by signing the parent and/or guardian signature sheet within Student Rights and Responsibilities.

In 2013 the Virginia General Assembly passed HB 1406, Code of Virginia, 22.1-273.2 requiring Virginia Public Schools to provide, on an annual basis, parent educational information regarding eating disorders for pupils in grades 5 through 12. According to the National Eating Disorders Association (NEDA, 2013):
Eating disorders are real, complex, and devastating conditions that can have serious consequences for health, productivity, and relationships. They are not a fad, phase, or lifestyle choice. Eating disorders are serious, potentially life-threatening conditions that affect a person’s emotional and physical health.
In collaboration with the Fairfax County Health Department, FCPS has developed eating-disorder documents with detailed information to be provided to all parents and guardians of Fairfax County Public Schools. On our website, you will find a parent letter and a fact sheet filled with information about this condition that affects many of our students. If you have additional questions, please address them to Lorraine Trouton, health specialist, Student Registration, at 571-423-4402.
