Spring Conference Information:

Dear Parents/Guardians,


Parent/Teacher Conferences will look different this year because of COVID-19. All conferences must be scheduled through https://www.myconferencetime.com/ehsblackraiders/. Conferences will be on Monday, February 22nd from 8:00 AM -8:00 PM and Tuesday, February 23rd from 3:05 PM -5:45 PM.


Families will have three conference options: a TEAMS virtual meeting, a phone conference, or a face to face conference. We highly recommend the TEAMS virtual or phone conference option to reduce the amount of contact. Conferences are scheduled for 10 minutes, with 5 minutes in-between (to disinfect for face to face conferences). If you choose face to face, only two adults and the student will be allowed into East High School. Also, everyone must wear a mask.

How to Schedule Conferences:

Step 1: Click on the link- https://www.myconferencetime.com/ehsblackraiders/.

  • Pro Tip - We highly recommend having your child attend the meeting with you.

Step 2: Select "Register for Multiple Time Slots" to meet with multiple teachers or select the individual teacher from the list that you would like to meet with.

  • Pro Tip - In most cases parents will want to meet with multiple teachers. The best way to decide which teachers to meet with is to talk to your child and check their Canvas grades.

Step 7: Select different times for each teacher you are meeting with unless they are in the same classroom, if the teachers share a classroom you can book the same times.

  • Pro Tip - It is not possible to meet with more than one teacher in the same time frame, unless they share a room, so be sure to pick different times for each teacher.
