New Parent Portal (Synergy ParentVue)
Beginning Friday evening, August 21, activation emails and letters for the new parent portal will be sent to MCPS parents. If a parent has an email on file, an email with activation instructions will be sent. If a parent does not have an email on file, a mailer will be generated and mailed to the parent address. If parents have difficulty with activating accounts, or if they do not receive a communication, they can contact the MCPS help line at 240-740-7020.

Student Login Information
Beginning August 23, emails will be sent to all families with student login and password information. This information will be used to log into StudentVUE, myMCPS Classroom and other core MCPS platforms that students will need to access virtual learning. Passwords will NOT be changed for the start of the year. Students can continue to use their passwords from last year. If a student has difficulty accessing their account, they can contact the MCPS help line at 240-740-7020.
