Parent/Teacher Conferences

alt

Thursday, October 7, 2021 is our virtual parent/teacher conference day at Kinard! If you have signed up for virtual conferences, please read below to help you have a successful conference experience.

  • Click the link to see a comprehensive list of each Kinard teacher’s Google Meet links. Each teacher’s meeting link is also included in their specific Sign Up Genius.
  • Please be sure to join the meeting link for the teacher you’ve scheduled in a timely manner. Virtual conferences will run approximately 5-7 minutes, similar to in-person conferences, to allow teachers time to transition to the next family promptly.
  • You will need to click the blue “Ask to Join” button on the Google Meet.
  • When the teacher is ready to begin your conference, they will accept you into their Google Meet. Until that time, your screen will include a message that says "You'll join the call when someone lets you in."
  • You will need to use a computer with microphone and video capabilities. If you do not have a personal computer at home, you could borrow your child’s school laptop for the conferences.

In-person conferences on October 12: As a reminder, we will also be hosting in-person, drop-in style conferences on Tuesday, October 12th from 4:00-7:00 p.m. If you were not able to schedule a virtual conference with a teacher, we hope you will join us then.

For in-person conferences on the 12th, masks will be required for all conference attendees. Please self-monitor for any COVID-19 symptoms (new loss of taste or smell, fever, cough, chills, shortness of breath, congestion, aches, nausea or vomiting, etc.) and do not attend the in-person conferences if you are not feeling well. We will maximize distance between participants and have sign-in sheets to document attendees.

If you have any questions about parent/teacher conferences, please contact Erin LaRue, Assistant Principal, at elarue@psdschools.org or at (970) 488-5410.
