Parent Teacher Conferences occur twice during the school year, once in November and another in March. These conferences are usually ten minutes in duration. Both parents/guardians are encouraged to attend to discuss the student’s progress and are a precursor for formal report cards (Jaunuary and June). Children of divorced/separated parents must schedule conferences together. Conferences with teacher specialists (art, music, science, etc.) are also available. Parents are urged to advise teachers of matters which might affect a child’s performance, i.e.—birth of a sibling, illness, divorce or death in the family.
Teachers will contact parents via backpack, to to establish a conference schedule. Scheduled times will either be in the afternoon or evening. Parents will be asked to select various times that works best for you. A final schedule will be backpacked to all families once the time slots are finalized.
If additional time is needed, parents may contact the teacher for a meeting or telephone conference to discuss a particular issue by sending a written note in your child’s backpack or call the Main Office and leave a message.
