Soon after you click "Book", you will receive a confirmation e-mail with a Microsoft Teams link to join your conference. Make sure to ...
  • KEEP THIS E-MAIL!
  • Share it with another parent if they will not be logging in from the same location.


Note: You can also manage your own conference time with the "Change your Appointment" link in the confirmation e-mail. You can only make changes to your conference 48 or more hours ahead of the scheduled time.

Repeat These Steps for all of the Pumas in Your Family!

Conference Tips ...

ARRIVAL
  • Please plan to join the meeting 5 minutes before your scheduled start time
  • You will be placed in a lobby until the teacher admits you to the meeting
  • Be aware that the teacher will do their best to keep on schedule but might fall behind.


TECHNOLOGY

  • If possible, we ask that parents use their own devices due to complications with student account permissions and initiating meetings.
  • It would be great to see you over video (but not required if you do not have access to a webcam).
  • If at all possible it is important that you attend with audio and at least incoming video capability so you can see your teacher and the important information they will share on the screen. The directions below will help make that possible ...

OPTION 1: NO DOWNLOAD REQUIRED

(SKIP TO OPTION 2 IF YOU WILL BE USING A SMARTPHONE)


You have to use a desktop or laptop computer and MUST be using a browser that supports Microsoft Teams such as Microsoft Edge or Google Chrome.
