This is a great opportunity to meet your child's teachers to learn all about their academic progress, how they are adjusting to full time in-person learning, and goals for the next grading period.

Please review your child's schedule to make sure you know all their teachers to determine which links to use in order to schedule a time to meet. Links are on the flyer and also inserted above.

If you can't go at the scheduled times, please ask the teacher(s) about alternate dates and times by reaching out to them via email.

Review your child's work/grades on Google Classroom & Infinite Campus and make sure to schedule a conference in the classes that have a low grade.

Thank you so much for your continued support and we look forward to connecting with you during conferences!
