Parent-Teacher Conferences - Getting Ready!
Next Monday, March 7th, "Meet the Teacher" will go live to start scheduling for our Spring Parent-Teacher Conferences. Conferences will continue to be held via Zoom on March 23rd and 24th, taking place after two half days on Wednesday and Thursday. While some families and staff have expressed a desire to return to in-person conferences, many have also indicated that ZOOM conferences work best.
Prior to Fall 2022 Conferences we will poll stakeholders and develop a plan based on that feedback and what is operationally feasible. Thank you for your patience as we continue to navigate the challenges of COVID and its aftermath.
Please stay tuned for the online sign ups for next Monday. Thank you for your ongoing support and collaboration!
