Dear Parent(s)/ Guardian(s):
Parent-Teacher Conferences are rapidly approaching. Conference is a one-night event on Wednesday, February 17, 2:00 pm to 8:00pm. I strongly encourage parent(s) and student(s) to engage in conferences with their teachers. I believe this creates an opportunity to lessen confusion and build positive communication among the parent, student, and teacher. Research has proven, time and time again, that students perform better if a parent is actively involved in their students’ academic process.
Conferences for the spring will be conducted through one of these three avenues based on your child’s individual situation:
- Meet with your child’s teacher(s) via video conferencing. If you prefer this option, please go to https://signup.com/go/nvOmamZ. Find your teacher(s) on the list and select a time. If you sign up, the teacher(s) will reach out to you prior to conferences with a link to the meeting. Videoconferences will be limited to five-minute sessions in an effort to maximize teacher availability. When you log in for your conference, please be patient as the teacher may be engaged in a conference previous to yours.
- Engage in email conferences. Send an email to your child’s teacher(s) with any questions or concerns that you may have. The teacher will respond to you during the day of parent-teacher conferences.
- Request to receive a phone call from your child’s teacher(s). To receive a phone call, please email your teacher(s) indicating what time of the day you would like to be contacted along with a phone number. Videoconferences will be a priority over phone calls, however, the teacher(s) will attempt to contact you as close to your requested time as possible.
Parent-Teacher Conferences provide an opportunity for parents and students to work with teachers and staff to assure your young person the best education that we as a team can provide. The teachers and I hope that you plan to make conferences a priority. It is only through communication and cooperation that we can assure your student’s success here at the “FORT”. I look forward to your participation in your student’s conferences held on February 17.
