Parent Teacher Conferences
Parent-Teachers Conferences will be held Monday, October 17 and Tuesday, October 18 from 12:00-8:30 pm. Parents are encouraged to sign-up early for best selection.
You may schedule your conferences online at https://pickatime.com/CA/client?event=377942 beginning Wednesday, September 28, at 6:00 am. If you have difficulty with the online scheduler, check out our FAQ and directions below, or you may email us at email@example.com.
Conferences are scheduled in 12-minute blocks, but no extra time is given to get to your next appointment. Back-to-back conferences are allowed, but you'll want to finish with enough time to make it to your next appointment. In some cases, you may wish to leave an empty block between conferences to allow for plenty of "travel time."
Please do not schedule conferences for any college classes. As is the case on any college campus, students (or parents) are encouraged to speak with teachers or professors about their classes at any time during the semester. We want to keep all Parent-Teacher Conference slots available for high school classes.
Also, please note that the system will only allow one conference per student per teacher. If parents are in separate households, the scheduling system will not allow both parents to set up individual conferences with the same teacher. Parents will need to attend conferences together or set up a separate additional time outside of the conference days.
Online scheduling will close at 12:00 Noon on Friday, October 14.
Reminder: go to https://pickatime.com/CA/client?event=377942 to schedule your conferences. The scheduler opens at 6:00 am on Wednesday, September 28.
