To check when you have scheduled your conference:

Log into the Parent Portal

  • Click “student” (at the top)
  • Click “Teacher Conferences” (on the left-hand menu)
  • Scroll down to the very bottom of the page, where you will see your scheduled date and time listed under the orange “Export” and “Add to Schedule” buttons

For families with two households, you may not be able to see the conference time listed in the portal, depending on which household scheduled the conference. Feel free to email the Registrar and we can confirm your time!

IMPORTANT REMINDER: Students MUST be present at their conferences. We can not proceed with the conference if the student is not present.
