Parent Teacher Conferences

Parent Teacher Conference week will take place the week of October 18th - 22nd. Conferences will be through Zoom or In-Person. Teachers will make arrangements based on an agreed method. On Wednesday, October 20th, there will be another county-wide Digital Learning Day for all students and on Thursday, October 21st, K-5 students will be released at 12:15 PM, so that teachers will be available to conference with parents. Please mark these dates on your calendars and if needed, make alternate child care plans for that Wednesday and Thursday, since we will not be on normal schedules those two days.
