Parent-Teacher Conferences

Dear Parents/Guardians: 

Parent-Teacher Conferences will be held this year in November. All conferences will be conducted virtually using google meet. Teachers will be scheduling conferences during the afternoon on November 23 and November 24. Kindergarten teachers will have additional conferences on the 18th or 19th.  While we hope that most of the conferences can be scheduled during afternoon hours, we will have a limited number of evening appointments available on Monday, November 23.  

This year we will be scheduling conferences using google calendars.  During the week of November 9th, teachers will be sending out sign-up instructions along with links to their google calendars.  This will allow parents to sign-up for a day and time that works for their family.  If you have more than one child at Hambright, you will receive instructions and a calendar link from each teacher.  

In order for parents to receive the information about signing up for a conference time, it is vital that the school has accurate contact information.  If your child’s teacher does not have an email address that is reliable and checked often, please email him/her directly with your updated contact information prior to October 30th.

Teacher email addresses are  

Since we schedule conferences with every parent, we plan on a 15-minute time schedule to discuss each child. If you have a concern which will require a more lengthy discussion, please reach out to the teacher and schedule an additional meeting time.

Please let us know if you have any questions prior to receiving additional communication from your child’s teacher regarding Parent-Teacher Conferences.
