Parent-Teacher Conferences Approaching

Dear Families,


Our Fall Remote Parent-Teacher Conferences are coming soon! All conferences are scheduled to be held virtually via Zoom.


Conference Schedule:

  • Thursday, Nov. 18, 2021 - 5:00 to 8:00 p.m.

  • Monday, Nov. 22, 2021 - 2:00 to 4:00 p.m.

  • Monday, Nov. 22, 2021 - 5:00 to 8:00 p.m.


Conference scheduling will be completed through the PTC Wizard system for Grades 3-8. Sprague teachers will reach out to families to schedule their own conferences. The PTC Wizard system will open on Wednesday, November 10, at 7 p.m. and close on Tuesday, November 16, at 11:59 p.m.


PTC Wizard Scheduling

Only the primary parent/guardian contact for your student (as identified in our PowerSchool student information system at the time of registration) will receive an email communication from PTC Wizard the morning of Wednesday, November 3 with your log in credentials. If the primary family contact has not received the email from PTC Wizard, please contact your student’s respective school.


Although conference scheduling will not open up until the evening of Wednesday, November 10, please try to log in to the system as soon as possible before the 10th to test your credentials. If you need assistance, please reach out to your child’s school through the following email address. Include your full name, your child’s full name, and a description of the issue you are having, and someone will help you as soon as possible.


Other Conference Details:

  • The PTC Wizard log in information will come from the email address: support@ptcwizard.com with the subject, “Your PTC Wizard Log in”. Please check your SPAM folder if you do not receive it by 12:00 p.m. Wednesday, November 3.

  • Only the guardian/parent who is indicated in our system as primary contact will receive the log in information from PTC Wizard. Due to our limited conference availability, we ask that our families with two households collaborate to find a time for both parents to attend each teacher conference.

  • Parents with students at both Half Day School and Daniel Wright Junior High School will have the option to schedule conferences across both schools with the same PTC Wizard account.

  • Conference length at Half Day is 15 minutes total.

  • Daniel Wright parents can only schedule two 10 minute conferences out of the five core subjects with those teachers. More information will be coming on this in another email.

  • Sprague teachers are scheduling their own conferences. If you have a child at Sprague, look for information to come directly from your child’s teacher.

  • On or before the morning of Thursday, November 18, a Zoom link for individual conferences will be emailed directly to parents from the scheduled teacher or school. If you have any Zoom log in issues, please contact your student’s teacher.

  • Translator services are available upon request. Please contact your child’s school as soon as possible if you are in need of a translator for your conferences.


Thank you for your partnership in your child’s education, and we look forward to seeing you soon!


Dr. Craig Chatham


Director of Technology & Assessment
