  • Parent/Teacher Conferences

    There are a variety of ongoing, informal communication tools that many of you utilize to remain aware of your child’s learning: the parent portal, email, teacher notes, newsletters and conversation.

    As a district, during the week of November 24th, we have scheduled two dates for parents and teachers to meet for conferences regarding student progress.

    Below are the scheduled times for this year. We realize this is later than in previous years; however, doing so provides more time for staff to assess your child’s growth.

    Please take this opportunity to celebrate your child’s learning with teachers on these designated dates.

    These dates are as follows:

    • Monday, November 24th 1:00-8:00 pm
    • Tuesday, November 25th 1:00-8:00 pm

    Wednesday, November 26th is a school vacation day for both students and staff.
