Trimester 3 VIRTUAL Parent/Teacher Conferences

Lake Middle School Trimester 3 VIRTUAL Parent/Teacher Conferences will be held on:

Tuesday, April 26th

3:30pm-6:00pm, via Zoom

Trimester 3 Parent/Teacher Conferences will be VIRTUAL and by appointment only.

 

Each conference appointment slot is 7 minutes long. *PLEASE NOTE THAT THIS IS ONLY FOR CURRENT TRIMESTER 3 classes/students. End of Trimester 3 is: Friday, June 3rd, 2022 

We will use PTCFast to facilitate scheduling of ZOOM virtual conferences.

To sign-up for virtual online conferences, simply head here to book your appointments or click below! Each appointment slot is 7 minutes in length.

*Please Note - VIRTUAL conference sign-ups are accessible up until 24 hours prior to each individual conference date.

In order to help our teachers stay on schedule during virtual conferences, we ask families to be aware of their appointment time and arrive to their teacher’s ZOOM meeting room on time. That being said, once your conference time/appointment has been confirmed (you will be sent an email from PTCFast) to please SAVE that email or enter the information in your calendar, to quickly access this information and ZOOM link on the appropriate conference date for each individual conference you schedule.

With hosting conferences in this format, each conference is consequently shorter than usual. Accordingly, you may find that the teacher with whom you wish to speak to has already been booked up. If this is the case, please reach out to that teacher over email to arrange a phone conference for another time. Lake Middle School's Staff Directory

Please note that parent-teacher conferences are optional. If your child is progressing and performing successfully, there is no need for a conference. However, if you have specific concerns or questions regarding your child, we encourage you to sign-up for a conference and/or reach out to a staff member by email or phone. 

**Support staff including special education, school psychologist, social worker, counselors, speech, EL, gifted and talented, etc. will also be available during our conference dates. You can sign-up for a time with them at the same link being offered for all staff members.

INTERPRETER SERVICES 

If you need an interpreter for your conference, please contact your student’s counselor and indicate your need for an interpreter BEFORE APRIL 15. (*Please note: Most likely we will need to schedule a different time schedule and format for conferences with teachers you would like to meet with based on the current virtual format.)
