Parent Teacher Conference Procedures (subject to change due to health restrictions)

With the use of ParentVUE and Canvas, our hope is that teachers, students and parents will be able to communicate frequently as to the progress of the students.

If parents have a question about their student's progress, we ask that they e-mail the teacher. Contact information should be included on the staff directory or the teacher's webpage. If, after the teacher contact, parents feel that a face to face meeting is in order, they can set something up with that individual teacher. If three or more teachers are involved, parents can contact the counselor and he/she will help to facilitate the meeting.
