Parent Teacher Conferences
Dear Mountain Ridge Parents,
Spring parent teacher conferences will be held next week (February 8th-12th). Due to the pandemic, we will be doing our conference virtually, the same as we did for the Fall. Teacher times and dates will vary depending on their availability and we have attached a spreadsheet with those individual teacher times along with the Zoom link where the individual conferences will be held. We have appointments open and available. We ask that you log onto your Skyward parent account, find a time that works for you and set up an appointment to meet with your students’ teacher. When that date and time comes, you will be able to log into the Zoom link provided on the attached spreadsheet where you will be able to join the teacher for the conference.
As a reminder this is how the process will work:
1- Beginning now, you can go on your Parent Skyward account and sign up for appointments with your Mountain Ridge Teachers. Teachers will have 10 min increments for conferences.
2- Attached to this email is a link to our MRHS website with the above attached spreadsheet. On this spreadsheet will be each of our teachers and their corresponding times that their conferences will be held.
***You will find this spreadsheet under the community tab on our website. Down at the bottom of the list will be “Parent Teacher Conferences” The spreadsheet is placed there.
3- A few minutes before your scheduled appointment time, click on the link from the spreadsheet next to the teacher's name and enter the virtual waiting room.
4- The teacher will let you into the virtual conference when they are ready for the meeting.
5- After meeting with the teacher, please click the red "Leave" button to clear the room for the next parent.
Here is an instructional video that was created by another school in our district, so you can see how this process works from your end.
