Parent Teacher Conferences

Dear Parents/Guardians,

On November 10th from 1:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. and from 6pm-8pm, we will be conducting our
parent/teacher conferences.
To give parents/guardians options and to make the conferences as convenient as possible, we are going to provide parents with the option of participating in' conferences virtually or in-person. From 1:00 p.m.- 5:00 p.m. parents can participate in conferences virtually using zoom. Details and links to are provided below. For parents/guardians who prefer the more traditional in-person conferences, we will have open house style conferences from 6:00 p.m. - 8:00 p.m.

For parents who chose to utilize the virtual option, each of our teachers have created 10-minute time slots from 1:00 p.m.- 5:00 p.m. using Sign The links to each teacher's unique and conference Zoom links are attached to this letter. Many of these links are long and can be tedious to type into your browser; each are also posted in your son/daughter's individual Google Classrooms and can be easily accessed from there as well. Below are the specific steps for parents to take to schedule virtual conferences:

• Utilize each teacher's Google Classroom pages to get the necessary Sign and Zoom links. Your son/daughter can be helpful in getting into the Google Classrooms, but this letter also has all links attached as well.
• Visit the Sign links (attached) of the teachers you would like to conference with, and then select the times for those teachers that are most convenient to you. Please avoid scheduling yourself with two teachers at the same time.
• At the times you selected, go to the respective teachers unique Zoom link (attached). You will be placed in a virtual waiting room until it is your turn. If the teacher does not recognize your display name on Zoom, they may message you privately to confirm who is in the waiting room.

For parents who chose to attend in-person conferences from 6pm-8pm, you can attend at any time during that time frame and visit any of your son/daughter's teachers.

Parent/teacher conferences are an important step in ensuring that vital collaboration occurs between parents and teachers in an effort to ensure student growth. Therefore, we strongly encourage everyone to take advantage of this opportunity. Thank you in advance for your patience and efforts in making parent/teacher conferences successful. Please contact me with any questions or for any assistance you may need attending our conferences.
