Please note that if you choose to book your child’s conference electronically then you do NOT need to send the second page of this packet to your child’s homeroom teacher. You ONLY need to send back the paper conference information if you are NOT able to book your conference by way of the Internet. Please remember that conference slots will fill up quickly; therefore, the best way to ensure the time and date that works best for your schedule is to book the conference using the electronic format. The link for booking your conference is:
If you wish to have a group conference with multiple teachers that work with your child, then please book a common slot on EACH of the teachers’ conference schedules. Be sure to indicate the other teachers you are scheduling the conference with on the electronic form. Please remember to schedule with Special Education teaches, Special Areas and Related Services Staff (Speech, Occupational Therapy, Guidance, Nurse, etc.) if these staff members work with your child. Please feel free to contact your child’s school at 653.1027 if you have any questions or need further assistance. Thank you in advance for your cooperation.
