Parent Contact Form / E-News Sign-up

2018-2019 MVM Contact Form


All families, new and returning, must complete the contact form every school year to have up-to-date information for your family to receive important communications. This form will take approximately 10 minutes to complete.


All families are required to have at least one parent/guardian subscribed to the School E-News Distribution List. Our school has several channels of communication available to parents. This is how you will receive important communications regarding school events, news and updates. 

All families should subscribe to FindOutFirst and follow MVM. FindOutFirst is the Frederick County Public Schools (FCPS) email service for emergency closings for schools and on the areas of interest you select. News from FindOutFirst is often received before other sources, but in emergencies please check any reliable source. MVM administration may use this method to reach out to parents for urgent messages (i.e. building issues, bear lock-downs, etc.) Sign-up or change your preferences: https://fcps.ezcommunicator.net/edu/frederick/login_form.aspx?app=0

School Closings/Delay Announcements

MVMPCS sends the cancellation notice via the eNews email distribution (after Find Out First). Messages from eNews will include changes to events specific to MVM (such as snow-date changes for plays). All families are required to subscribe to our eNews. If you do not receive this, please fill out the Contact Form below and then notify webmaster@mvmpcs.org to get added.
Frederick County Public Schools sends out all school closing notifications through their Find Out First system. There was an upgrade to the system over the summer, so if you did not receive the notification for this cancellation, please review your communications preferences within the FCPS system. 

Maryland's First Charter School

Monocacy Valley Montessori Public Charter School is the first charter school within the Frederick County Public School (FCPS) system. Attendance is open to all FCPS students entering Pre-K through eighth grade through a Lottery system held annually in March each year. The school's academic program is based on the philosophy and methods of Dr. Maria Montessori. The students, staff and families of MVMPCS are working together to create an enriching learning community. The first step in exploring a Montessori education is to visit our school on one of our monthly tours. We encourage you to sign up.
