Attendance at Parent Conferences is an important part of the educational process. Parents are welcomed and strongly encouraged to participate in the yearly conferences. Conferences are held when report cards are issued for the first and second marking periods. Days set aside for conferences are listed on the school calendar. On the days designated as Parent Conference Days, students are dismissed at 1:20.

Parents/Guardians will receive an email message inviting them to schedule their conferences online. This email will include a link to the scheduling website, as well as instructions for how to schedule your conferences.   Any individuals who do not have email will be invited to visit the school to schedule conferences prior to the fall and winter report cards.

Parents and teachers may also choose to meet at any time throughout the school year if a conference is desired.

Middle School Interim Reports

Grade level mid-term reports may be mailed home in the event that a student is having academic difficulty. In the event that a student is failing or in danger of failing a class or classes (a grade of D or D-), a meeting with parent(s), student, teacher(s), and principal shall be required.
