Back to School Night Information


General Information and Support

Middle School BTSN

  • Wednesday, September 22 at 6:30 p.m.

High School BTSN

  • Wednesday, September 29 at 6:30 p.m.

An optional Parent Presentation will be held prior to BTSN in the Little Theatre beginning at 5:45 p.m. The presentation will include information on how to support your student and how to help them develop a growth mindset.

In order to assist with social distancing and COVID protocols, we ask that only one parent or guardian attend BTSN and that students remain at home, if possible. 

Need Onsite Assistance?

  • Staff will be available in the Career Center to assist with SIS ParentVUE and Schoology accounts.
  • Bruin Ambassadors (LBSS students wearing lanyards) will be stationed throughout the building to help locate classrooms and answer questions.

Unable to Attend?

  • If you are unable to attend BTSN, teachers will post informational videos about them and their course(s) to their Schoology page by the end of this month.

Event Schedule

Both events will follow the same schedule. Please start in your student’s 4th period Advisory classroom. We will start with a brief video message, followed by the presentation from the Advisory teacher.

Students will bring home a copy of their schedule along with a map of the school. You can also access their schedule in SIS ParentVUE, and copies will be available in the Career Center during BTSN.

You will then walk your student’s schedule as follows:

Purple Day

  • 1st Period
  • 3rd Period
  • 5th Period
  • 7th Period

Gold Day

  • 2nd Period
  • 6th Period
  • 8th Period

Event Details

Each teacher will have 10 minutes to speak to the families in each period. Teachers will focus on the information about the course, major assignments, grading and assessment, and communication.

Questions or concerns about COVID protocols and layered prevention strategies are consistent across FCPS and LBSS and should be addressed with an administrator.

If you have specific questions or wish to discuss a specific issue with your child’s teachers, please email the teacher to arrange another time.
