Parent-Teacher Conference Sign Ups Underway

Parent-Teacher Conference Sign Ups Underway

Frederick County Public Schools (FCPS) invites parents of elementary and middle school students to parent-teacher conferences in November.

Wednesday, November 7 and Thursday, November 8, elementary and middle schools will open four hours late so that teachers can stay late to hold evening parent-teacher conferences; high schools are open the full day. Friday, November 9, elementary and middle schools dismiss students 3.5 hours early for afternoon parent-teacher conferences; high schools are open the full day.  

There are no prescheduled conference dates at high schools. The Board of Education encourages parents of high school students to contact the teacher any time they have a concern or wish to schedule a meeting.  

FCPS urges parents of elementary and middle school students to schedule conferences for the above dates to learn about their child’s classroom, school performance and behavior. These conferences help parents and teachers work together to support the student.  CONFERENCES ARE SCHEDULED DIRECTLY WITH THE CHILD'S SCHOOL. Schools encourage parents to bring their questions and contact the school for conference-scheduling information if they do not receive it soon.

Pre-kindergarten students at non-charter schools do not attend school on parent-teacher conference days. If your pre-kindergartner attends a charter school, please check directly with the school for the schedule.  

When schools open four hours late, students should eat lunch before coming to school. When schools close 3.5 hours early, students eat lunch at school before dismissal. For information about scheduling conferences and the detailed attendance schedule, please contact the child’s school.
