HCPSS will use the "Synergy Conference Management" to schedule parent-teacher conferences.  Starting Tuesday, November 6, 2018 at 3:00 p.m.until Tuesday, November 13, 2018 at 9:00 a.m., parents can log into HCPSS Connect ( to view and select from the time slots available. Parents without online access may contact the Mayfield Woods Office of Student Services at 410-313-5025 for assistance in scheduling conferences.  All conferences will be 10 minutes in length with 5 minutes of travel time, and will take place in the room identified when scheduling.

Important note: In order to give as many parents as possible the opportunity to conference with teachers, an initial three (3) conference per student limit is necessary.  Unfortunately, Synergy will not prevent you from scheduling more than 3 conferences, so we respectfully ask that you refrain from doing so.  If you do schedule more than 3 conferences, we will have no choice but to delete all additional conferences after the first 3 chronologically.  If you have a unique family situation, please contact Principal Shindel by November 3 at or 410-313-5022.


The good news is that after all parents have had the opportunity to schedule at least 3 conferences, we will re-open the conference window and you may sign up for as many additional conferences as you wish (over your initial 3), given the remaining slots available.   The second conference window will open on Tuesday, November 13, 2018 at 3:00 p.m.   In order to prepare for conferences, Synergy conference scheduling will close on Thursday, November 15, 2018 at 3:00 p.m.

To recap the timeline:

  • November 6, 3:00 p.m. – Parent-teacher conference sign-ups begin with a 3 conference limit per student
