The scheduling window for parent portal closes this evening. Please schedule your conference through Parent Portal now if you have not already done so. If you have not signed up for a conference, your child’s teacher will send home a notice regarding your conference time. Please click here for an overview of how to navigate the sign up in portal.


Please note:


  • If you have informed your child’s teacher that you need a translator present during your conference, a conference time will be scheduled for you; you do not need to do anything.

  • If your child receives supplemental services, such as Basic Skills or ESL, whenever possible the teacher will join your child's homeroom teacher at the conference. If they are not at the conference and you have concerns you would like to discuss, please feel free to email the teacher.

  • If you would like to schedule a meeting with your child’s related service provider (OT and/or speech), please email the teacher.

  • There are a limited number of conference slots available with our special area teachers; you may sign up in any of the available slots. If a slot is not available and you have a concern to discuss, please email the teacher.
