January 06, 2022

You may wish to read FCPS messages in a language other than English. There are several ways you can receive or view our communications in a different language.

eNotify Messages

eNotify messages are the most urgent and critical messages FCPS sends. They cover topics such as bad weather, safety concerns, schedule changes, and other time-sensitive information. Every parent/guardian is automatically set up to receive eNotify messages. To indicate a language preference other than English for your communications via eNotify, please contact your school’s front office. Find contact information for your local school in the Schools and Centers Directory
