The end of the first marking period is scheduled for Friday, October 30th.  Report cards will be available on Skyward on November 13, 2020.  Parent-Teacher conferences are scheduled for November 23rd & November 24th.  Please note that this year’s Parent-Teacher Conferences will be held virtually.  There will be no school for students November 23rd – 27th.  The following will be the district schedule for the November Parent-Teacher conferences.
 

Monday, November 23rd -8:00 a.m.-7:15 p.m.  No conferences will be scheduled from 12:00 noon-12:45 p.m. and 4:30 p.m.-5:40 p.m.

Tuesday, November 24th -8:00 a.m.-7:15 p.m. No conferences will be scheduled from 12:00 noon- 12:45 p.m. and 4:30 p.m.-5:40 p.m.

Conferences will be scheduled through your Skyward account. The conference scheduling period will open for parents beginning on Thursday, November 5, 2020 at 6:00 PM.   Please follow the process outlined below to select your conference times: 

1)  Log on to Skyward using your regular account information. 
2)  Click on the “Teacher Conferences” button on the left side of your Skyward Screen. 
3)  Click the “All Conferences” tab towards center of the page. 
4)  Click the “Select a Time” tab. 
5)  Click on “Select” for the timeslot you wish to reserve. Then click Save.
6)  A confirmation email will be sent to you. 


**Special Note**- After the scheduling period is complete, teachers will send a Zoom link to parents by November 20, 2020.  The same Zoom link will be used and parents will be asked to wait in the “waiting room” until their designated appointment time.

As in the past, 4th and 5th grade conferences will be teamed conferences with both the English Language Arts and Mathematics teacher present.   If your child is a 4th or 5th grade student, please select your child’s English Language Arts teacher.  Skyward will default to the ELA teacher.  

You are encouraged to make your selection as soon as possible, in particular if you have more than one child.   If you would like to cancel or change your time, you can also use the system to make these changes, as long as the time slots remain available for a particular teacher. Please note that some periods are not available to allow for lunch and dinner breaks for staff. Please contact your child’s school if you do not have access to Skyward.  Thank you and we look forward to “virtually” seeing you!

Sincerely,

Le Roy G. Whitehead, Ed. D.
Assistant Superintendent
