Friday 2 Hour Early Dismissal

Updated February 7, 2022. Please read for more information: 

After a review of FCPS requirements, and both current and historical practices at MVM, the GC has voted to change our Friday 2 hour early dismissal time for the remainder of the 2021-2022 school year. MVMPCS will dismiss at 12:45pm when FCPS dismisses 2 hours early on Fridays. This change affects the following dates:

  • Friday, February 18, 2022 – dismissal at 12:45 pm
  • Friday, March 18, 2022 – dismissal at 12:45 pm 
  • Friday, May 6, 2022 – dismissal at 12:45 pm
  • Friday, May 20, 2022 – dismissal at 12:45 pm

Please note, this does not change the pre-K schedule. Pre-K students will have classes from 9:00 am to 11:30 am on all early dismissal days for the remainder of the school year. 

We have updated the 2021-22 Parent Handbook and our calendar to reflect these changes, which will become effective immediately. 

We thank our community for supporting the GC’s effort to ensure that our staff has adequate time on these school days, for the hard work that they put into planning and classroom preparation. 

The event is finished.



MMCI schools provide a free Montessori education to more than 700 Frederick County students. Charter schools already have less access to funding per student than other public schools, and recent funding cuts mean that our contributions are key to ensuring the continued success of our schools.
