Scheduling Parent/Guardian-Teacher Conferences
Flynn will continue to use the electronic scheduling system, PTC Fast, to schedule our March 2021 Parent-Teacher Conferences. This system will allow you to select the teacher(s) with whom you would like to conference. By registering your email address, you will be able to view and select conference times that work for you.
What if you need to schedule multiple conferences (more than one child at Flynn)?
If you have more than one child at Flynn School, you may begin scheduling your conferences on Wednesday, March 10th.
You should select (check) all teachers with whom you need to conference from the list of available teachers. You will then be prompted to enter each child’s name for the corresponding teachers. When that is done, you can proceed with registering your email address. You will receive a link via email to access and view the teachers’ schedules. You will see all selected schedules at one time!

Families that need to schedule a conference for only one child may begin scheduling conferences on Friday, March 12th.
