Student/Parent-Teacher Interviews–Nov. 1, 2018

General Information

Parent/Teacher Interviews will be held in the North Gym and North Cafeteria on Thursday,
November 1st from 1:30 to 4:30 pm and 5:30 to 7:30 pm.

Students are encouraged to attend with their parents/guardians.

Self-service appointment booking does not open until 15 days prior to the event (see details below).

Appointment Invitations

Prior to the availability of Online Scheduling (see below), teachers with specific/urgent concerns about students may schedule appointments directly with those families.  Teachers will book these appointments in the system so some slots will not be available during the online booking period.  If a teacher contacts you about an appointment, please reply ASAP so that your appointment slot can be reserved before booking opens to all families.

If a teacher does not contact you about your child, this may mean we have already been in contact with you about your child and have nothing new to add report OR we have no concerns about your child in our subject OR that our concerns about other students are more urgent.  Full-time teachers only have a maximum of 28 interview slots available for their hundreds of students and we appreciate families understanding our need to prioritize access.

Families should make an appointment during the regular online booking period for any course/subject they are concerned about.
