Parent-Student-Teacher conferences allow parents, students, and teachers an opportunity to discuss a student’s academic progress near the mid-point in the semester. Because students and parents can benefit from hearing the same commendations and recommendations from teachers, we strongly suggest students and parents attend conferences and participate in these conversations together.

Conferences are in person as scheduled on Wednesday, October 20, from 3:00-8:00pm, and are virtual on Thursday, October 21, from 11:00am-7:00pm. All conferences will be by appointment. You must sign up in advance for a conference with your child’s teacher. There are no walk-in appointments available.

There are no classes for students October 20-22 because of conferences and professional development.

Parents should refer to an email sent October 12 from wintime@delasalle.com with an individual link to sign up for conferences with your child’s teachers. The assistant principal, deans of student life, guidance counselors, Canvas support, and learning specialists are also available for appointments. If you have more than one student at DeLaSalle, you will receive a separate email for each child.  Should you have any technical questions or issues, please contact support@delasalle.com.

You will receive an email on the day of your conferences to remind you of your appointments and provide you with the meeting location – room number for Wednesday’s in-person conferences. Please have your schedule of appointments when you arrive at school because these will not be available on site. As a reminder, everyone must wear a face covering in the school at all times (except when eating or drinking). Please also follow six foot physical distancing as much as possible and respect those who wish to remain hands free.

You will receive an email on the day of your conferences to remind you of your appointments and provide you with the Google Meet link(s) for Thursday’s virtual conferences. Please arrive “on time” for your virtual appointment and test that your camera and microphone are working before you join the meet. 

It is beneficial for families to be able to monitor their student’s assignments, grades, course calendar and overall academic progress by creating an Observer account within the Canvas, DeLaSalle’s Learning Management System. Click here for instructions on how to create an account.

Families unable to attend conferences can always call or email teachers to arrange an alternate time. Click here to find teacher contact information in the online Staff Directory.
