3/1/2018 - Conference Sign Up Information

It is time once again to invite you to come to the school to confer with teachers.  We recognize the sacrifice of work and personal time required of you to participate in conferences, but every study on this subject identifies parent-teacher interaction as a major element in student success, so your time will be well spent.  The CHS teachers are looking forward to meeting with you.

Parent conferences will be held on three days:  Tuesday, March 13th; Wednesday, March 14th; and Thursday, March 15th from 1:00 to 3:00 pm.  In addition, evening conferences will be held on Wednesday, March 14th from 6:30 to 8:30 pm.  Eight minutes have been allotted for each conference. 

Scheduling for the upcoming conferences will be done on the Internet site “Pick-a-Time”.

All you need is a computer with Internet access, and your student’s ID number, which was sent out via email on February 26th.  The website is very user friendly; but for your easy use, directions are printed below.

The website is available to you 24 hours a day, from anywhere, both for your initial scheduling and to make changes if necessary.  Please note that the website will close at 11:00 pm on March 12th to allow teachers to prepare for their scheduled individual meetings.  You can also print a copy of your full schedule, as well as set a date and time for an email reminder to be sent to you.

The website for scheduling conferences will open on Saturday, February 24th at midnight.  However, if you do not have accessibility to the Internet, you may call to schedule conferences through Donna Miscikoski in the school office.  Office scheduling will begin Monday morning, February 26th.  Please have this letter handy when you call.


Thank You,

Andrew DiPippo, Principal
