From The Principal

Dear Flickinger Families,

It may be hard to believe, but we are near the end of our first card marking period. Since the start of school, we have worked together to navigate some of the challenges of our environment but also celebrate real successes of the connections being made between teachers and our students.

It is now our opportunity to schedule Parent-Teacher Conferences. Conferences are an important part of our partnership to make sure students are meeting our shared expectations.

This year, we will be piloting a web-based process to schedule and virtually meet with your child’s teachers about their progress. The system we are using is called Conference Manager and will allow you to check our teachers’ conference schedules and book an appointment on-line. You will use the same system for you and your student’s teacher to have a virtual conversation about academic progress.

The first time you use the Conference Manager you will be required to register and create a parent account. This only takes a minute or two.  You will continue to use this same account for the duration of the time you have children in the school, so please record your password where you can reference it later. 

Please note while you can register at any time, the appointment window will not open until 6 p.m. on October 28, 2020. The appointment window will close on November 10, 2020.

Directions for setting up your child's conference time can be found in your email inbox.


Nancy Brunetz, Principal
