On the Day and Time of your Conference

Sign into Zoom for the Conference:


1. On the day of your conference, click on the Zoom link for that teacher approximately 5 minutes before your scheduled time.

2. You will be prompted to wait in the waiting room. When your conference is ready to begin, the teacher will let you into the Zoom room for the conference.

3. Please make sure your volume is turned up and your camera and microphone are unmuted so the teacher can hear and see you.


  • For parents who do not have Zoom, please visit Zoom.US to download the app, if you are using your smartphone, you can download it from the app stores on iPhone and Android devices.
  • The basic Zoom account is free. If you need assistance with Zoom, your kids will be able to assist you. You do not need anything more than a smartphone to participate in a Zoom conference.

Helpful Tips and Reminders:


  • If you are unable to meet with a teacher because all slots are full, please contact that email that teacher to set up a phone conference.
  • If you lack the appropriate technology or have any trouble signing up, please contact the school’s main office. Building secretaries will be able to assist you.
