    Conferences will be held during three sessions on both November 25th and 26th. The sessions will be:

    9:00 am-12:00 pm;            1:00 pm-4:00 pm;                   5:00 pm-8:00pm


    You have probably already signed up for a conference time with your student’s block teacher, if you haven’t, please email them. All other classes will have sign-up sheets available at the beginning of each session. If you come a little before your block conference you should be able to sign up for the others. Conferences are busy times, and you might not get to every teacher, so it is important to prioritize the few classes where you need additional support or information to help your child succeed.  

    Please recognize that these eleven hour days have been put aside, by the district, for these important meetings. Teachers are not able to schedule conferences outside of this time; however phone conferences are a possibility during these two days. If that would work for you please contact your teacher.
