SPHS Parent/Teacher Conferences 11/15/18

Parent/Teacher Conferences 11/15/18

Dear Parents/Guardians:

Parent-Teacher Conferences are scheduled at the High School on November 15th. As last year, the day is a half day schedule for students. Conferences can be scheduled through the Genesis Parent Portal for the day session, between 1:00PM – 3:00PM, or the evening session between 6:00PM – 8:00PM.  Conferences are being offered in ten minute blocks and are scheduled back-to-back, without time built in between conferences.  If your child is experiencing difficulty in any of his or her courses, please take advantage of this opportunity to meet with the teachers or the guidance counselor. Administrators will also be present during each of the conference sessions for general questions and assistance.

Please keep in mind that conferences are optional and, as such, are intended to share information about your child and to continue to develop positive lines of communication between home and school.  As a reminder, conferences can be arranged anytime during the school year, as necessary, and may be requested by staff or family. If you already know that you would like to meet with one or more teachers, I strongly encourage you to schedule your conferences as soon as possible, as appointments tend to fill quickly. 

The Genesis Parent Portal will open for scheduling conferences on Monday, November 5th at 10:30AM, and close on Wednesday, November 14th at 3:00PM. The location of each conference will be the same as the classroom listed on your child’s schedule unless otherwise indicated.  If there is a room change, there will be a sign posted on the door.

For those using Genesis for the first time to schedule conferences, please click on the following link for simple instructions.  Parent Directions for Scheduling Conferences.pdf 

Due to the time constraints we ask that you are prompt to your appointment.  If your scheduled time comes and the door is closed, please knock once to let the teacher know that you are waiting.

It is through open communication between home and school that students will meet with the greatest success. A conference can be an important part of your child’s continued success for the remainder of the 2018-2019 school year.     

Sincerely,

SPHS Administration
