PARENT/TEACHER CONFERENCE SCHEDULE AND SIGN UP
ALL students, grades K-8 will have ½ days with dismissal at 11:55AM on both Monday and Tuesday 11/22 and 11/23. WCS conferences will only be held on Monday 11/22 from 12:00PM - 6:00PM.
Once again, we will be scheduling Parent/Teacher Conferences online with PTCFast.com. On this site you will be able to schedule a conference for all of your children. If you do not have internet access, you can call the office (443-9739) and we will schedule the conference(s) for you, or answer any questions. ALL CONFERENCES WILL BE VIRTUAL. Once you sign up for a conference time, your child’s teacher will contact you to set up the virtual meeting.
You will be directed to a screen with all the teachers listed. Click on your child(ren)’s teacher(s).
Middle school parents (Grade 6, 7 & 8) should meet with their student’s individual subject teachers. You will have 10 minute conferences and may choose with teachers you would like to speak with.
If you have more than 1 child, select “...more than one student” on the next screen.
Fill in your child’s first and last name on the next screen and click “done” when finished.
Enter your contact information and click “submit.”
You will receive an email within the next few minutes, with a link that will take you to the sign up screen, where you can choose what conference time is best for you.
We encourage you to leave time between conferences so that the schedule will not get bogged down. (3:15 - 3:30 and then 3:45 - 4:00, e.g.)
Since there are limited time slots available, we are limiting conferences to one per child. Conferences are 15 minutes for K-5 and 10 minutes for 6th, 7th & 8th. Please adhere to the time limit. Feel free to email your child’s teacher throughout the school year to stay up to date. You can find email addresses of staff on the school website. Parents of students in grades 6, 7 & 8 can check their student’s grades and attendance all year, through the Infinite Campus Portal. Please contact the office if you did not receive sign in information.

If there any questions, contact Mr. Hutchings!
A NOTE FROM MR. HUTCHINGS
As winter is approaching, please send your students with sneakers for PE. The boots are very hard on the gym floor and very difficult for your children to move around the gym in. I want the students to get the most out of their 40 minutes and to be at their absolute best in PE!
