I sure hope everyone is staying dry on this wet and rainy day! I wanted to inform you that a mailing should be arriving to students’ homes today or tomorrow. The mailing includes important information related to parent-teacher conferences and report cards.
Parent-Teacher Conferences: In an effort to streamline the scheduling of parent-teacher conferences for both parents and staff, we are going to use Sign Up Genius this Fall. Therefore, on Friday afternoon of this week, you should receive an email from firstname.lastname@example.org informing you that you have been invited by Sherri Stengel to sign up for “2016 Parent Teacher Conferences”. Click on the link and sign up for a conference time that works for you on either 11/15 or 11/17/2016. To view the letter sent home that explains this information in more detail, please visit Letter regarding Parent-Teacher Conferences.
Report Cards: Another letter explaining our move to online report cards will also be in the envelope you receive in the mail. Report cards will become live in the parent portal of Infinite Campus on the afternoon of 11/14/16. In order to access your child’s report card, you will need to have an account with Infinite Campus (IC). If you don’t already have an account to sign in to the parent portal of Infinite Campus, the letter explains how to go about creating an account. If you already log into IC to see your child’s grades, attendance, and other information, you already have what you need to access your child’s report card. The letter explaining our move to paperless report cards as a district that was sent home can be found at Report Card Information.
We understand that there are some families that do not have internet access at home or otherwise may not prefer online methods. Therefore, if you’d prefer a paper copy of your child’s report card or want Deb DenBoer, OMS Secretary, to sign you up for parent-teacher conferences, please call the office at 920-564-2383.
