April Conferences will take place on Thursday, April 15th, from 4:00 pm to 7:30pm, with two options for families to connect live with teachers, deans, administrators, case managers, etc. These options include a phone call from a teacher or a virtual meeting via Google Meet. We ask that each conversation stay within a five-minute time to allow for teachers to reach as many parents/guardians as possible. If you need more time, please schedule a follow up with the teacher at another time.

Please click on this link and follow the instructions to sign up for a time, that works best within your schedule, to talk with your student's teachers/support staff members.

If you are unable to connect via a phone call or Google Meet on this date, we encourage all families to reach out to their students' teachers. You can find their contact information by visiting our Staff Directory on the school's website.
