date 11/13/2020

Dear Parent(s)/Guardian(s),

Beginning Monday, November 23rd, you will have the opportunity to schedule Parent-Teacher Conferences online.  Each conference is five minutes.  This is an opportunity for you to meet with some or all of your child’s teachers regarding your child’s progress in the class and/or concerns you may have about your child’s progress in the class. All conferences this year will be VIRTUAL

How do parents register for a conference?

Starting on Monday, November 23th please go to: Parent Teacher Conferences Registration. On the registration form, enter your name, e-mail address, password, phone number, and student name/grade level and then click on “Register”.

At the next screen, select the name of your child’s teacher. Once you have selected a teacher, you will be asked to select an available conference time. After selecting a conference time, you will then be able to confirm your selection and print or e-mail your schedule.

If you're scheduling conferences for twins, please register twice using a different email account for each. Please note: we do not retain parents' information from the last year or populate the registration system with the student data information.

If I have difficulty registering, who do I call?

What happens if I cannot make any of the listed conference times?

Conferences can always be scheduled offline as you may have done in the past. Please contact your child’s teacher directly.
