Elementary Conferences: We are excited to share your student's progress with you! Elementary Conferences will be held Thursday, February 24th - Tuesday, March 8th. Teachers have blocked availability over the course of those two weeks to meet with our families.

  • February 24th will serve as the district set night, with conferences being held from 3:30pm - 8:00pm. We would like to invite you to sign up for an onsite conference during that time.
  • If that date is not possible for your family to come to the school, please look at the registration link and choose another time your teacher will be available.  All conferences scheduled through the link will be held in person.
  • Should you need to schedule a virtual conference, please contact your teacher directly. This will allow the teacher time to create a virtual meeting link.
  • You will receive an enews with the registration link when the scheduling window opens on Wednesday, February 9 at 7:00am. It will remain open until noon on Wednesday, February 16.
