Parent/Teacher Conference Scheduling

Parent/Teacher Conference Scheduling
Posted on 10/24/2019

Communication and collaboration between home and school is a significant factor in contributing to student achievement.  One of the ways we encourage this communication is through parent-teacher conferences. 

HCS Conferences will be held on: 

  • Tuesday, November 19      4:00 – 7:00 pm 

  • Thursday, November 21    4:00 – 7:00 pm 

  • Friday, November 22         1:30 – 3:15 pm 

Some teachers are also available to conference in the morning during the week of November 18th.  In addition to your child’s classroom teacher, you may also schedule a conference with other HCS staff members that work with your child.  

Conferences can be scheduled through the Pick A Time website beginning Saturday, October 26th @ 8:00 AM. (Please note  you should use a computer, not a phone, to sign up for conferences.)

  • Choose the day when you would like to schedule your conference(s).  Each colored square on the schedule represents an available meeting time. The legend shows you which teacher corresponds to which color, and the times increase as you go down the page.  Click on a square to schedule a time and then click “Create Appointment”. 

  • Note: you will not see all of the teachers at the school, just the set of teachers that your child has classes with.  If you would like to make an appointment with a staff member whose schedule isn’t available to you through Pick a Time, you can email that person directly to request a conference. Here is the link to HCS Staff Directory: 

  • Repeat until you have a time with each teacher you’d like to visit with. 

You can click on ‘printable schedule” and print the resulting web page to get a hardcopy of your schedule. You will also have the option to email your schedule to yourself. If you want to make changes to your schedule, you can log in at any time with the email address and password you used to create your account. Click on “Your Schedule” to display and hide your appointments. There will be links to change the time or cancel the appointment.
