Why sign ups? We recognize that it is difficult to coordinate conference times and nobody likes to wait indefinitely to visit with the teacher. This sign-up option is an effort to help both parents and teachers alleviate some of the stress of conference processes. Please realize that conference times will be kept to the 10 minute schedule in an effort to accommodate the majority. If you need more than 10 minutes, please schedule another meeting with the teacher. Scheduled parents will have priority – if someone chooses to wait in case there are a few extra minutes, they are not likely to get a full conference time as the teacher is being required to stick to the schedule. (After conference feedback from parents and teachers, we will be looking for adjustments we can make to improve the process.)
Thank you for your patience and understanding.
Misc Parents who arrive at Northlawn to see a teacher at conference time but have not signed up may sign up outside the teacher’s classroom. If no times are available, parent names will be taken and teachers will contact them at a later time.
