Football Game Guidelines
We anticipate a large crowd for our varsity home football games in the coming weeks. We wanted to take a moment to remind you that the following guidelines to ensure that all of our guests, students, and parents enjoy the true spirit of the event:
- Lake Braddock Secondary School is a drug, alcohol, and tobacco-free zone.
- Guests will not be allowed to enter the stadium with containers such as water bottles, cups, cans, coolers, etc.
- Guests will not be allowed to enter the stadium with backpacks or large bags, or sporting equipment (footballs, soccer balls, etc.).
- Once you leave the stadium, there is no re-entry to the event
- Representatives from the Fairfax County Police Department, the Lake Braddock Administration, and the Lake Braddock Security Staff will be on hand to ensure a safe and secure environment for both Lake Braddock fans and for our visitors and guests.
- Lake Braddock students and parents are asked to demonstrate good citizenship and spirited sportsmanship to our opponents and their fans. Let's show everyone why Bruin Nation is the class of the Region!
Thank you in advance for your adherence to these guidelines.

Student-Parent Survey for Federal Impact Aid
The annual Impact Aid Student-Parent Survey forms will be sent home with your child on October 23, 2019. Please return the completed, signed and dated survey by October 25, 2019.
FCPS anticipates receiving approximately $3,000,000 in unrestricted funds from the Impact Aid grant. The funds become part of the school system’s general operating budget and are critical to maintaining high standards for education.
For each school-aged child in your household, please complete, sign, date and return the survey to child’s school. If sections 1 and 2 of the survey do not apply to you, just check the box in Section 3 then sign and date the form. All forms must be signed, dated, and returned by October 25, 2019. All results are CONFIDENTIAL.
Additional information can be found at https://www.fcps.edu/impact. Learn more by watching this short video clip: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uPqC3BLf3Ow&feature=youtu.be
Digital Citizenship Week: October 21-25, 2019
FCPS is celebrating Digital Citizenship Week from October 21-25, 2019! This year’s theme is Media Balance and Well-Being: Developing a Healthy Relationship with Your Technology. View the LBSS website for practical tips and suggested activities to help your teen develop a healthy relationship with technology.
Did you know the school has an "Oops-I-Forgot-It-Closet" in the Main Office? There are just some of those days where your student has forgotten their lunch, books, laptop or other essential items. You may drop off forgotten items in this closet for your student to pick up, but please take note of the following:
- It's up to you to notify your student that you've dropped off the item for their pick-up. Send them a text or call them on their cell phones.
- Please write your student's name and the day's date on the item.
- Items must be picked up no later than the end of the school day.
- We dispose of lunches at the end of each day, as (unfortunately) we've discovered many food items spoil. If the lunch was packaged in a lunchbox, the lunchbox will be sent to the Lost and Found (in cafeteria) for retrieval.
- At the end of the school week ALL ITEMS will be sent to the Lost and Found.
Families are invited to join us for a safe and fun Trunk-or-Treating on the parking lot by the fields on Wednesday, October 30th from 6-7 p.m. The cost is $3/child or $5/families. All proceeds go to support the Class of 2020/21/22/23. This fun event will be followed by SGA’s Screen on the Green at 7 p.m. on the front field. We will be showing the movie, Halloweentown. Hope to see you there!
