Family Liaison Corner

Welcome Lane Parents and Guardians!

Thanks to a special county program and federal education funding, Lane has two family liaisons dedicated to helping parents in all their interactions with the school and throughout the FCPS school system. Our parent liaisons are Melanie Crosby Hardy and Nancy Solis-Lopez. They can assist you with a wide array of concerns and interests, helping you and your family get the support and assistance you need.

Mrs. Crosby Hardy has been a parent liaison at Lane for 18 years. Mrs. Solis-Lopez joined the Lane staff last year. She also works in the front office, and she speaks Spanish as well as English. (Sra. Solis-Lopez habla inglés y español.)

Family liaisons can:

  • provide new families with information about the school and community;

  • conduct tours of the building for new families;

  • connect families with other school personnel who provide specialized assistance and resources (such as our school counselors, our school psychologist, and our school social worker);

  • connect families with resources beyond the school, both in FCPS and in the greater community;

  • help families complete required paperwork (such as school forms, health forms, free/reduced lunch applications, summer program applications, etc.);

  • schedule a certified county interpreter to attend meetings for parents who speak a language other than English;

  • help parents who want to volunteer find productive ways to support the school;

  • support the PTA in its programs and events.  

If you have questions or need assistance, please don't hesitate to reach out to one of our liaisons. They are there to help you and your family.

You can reach out to our liaisons a number of ways. Here is their contact information:
