Dear Parents:

Parent/Teacher Conferences will be held on Thursday, October 22 from 4-8:00 p.m. and on Monday, October 26 from 4-8:00 p.m. Since we are in our hybrid model, conferences will look a little different this year. We feel it is best that we connect electronically via Zoom instead of inviting everyone into the building for in-person conferences. Below is how we plan to do that.

By the end of this week, teachers will communicate directly with parents of those students they wish to meet with specifically. This will be in the form of an email, and we ask that you register for an available time slot through Sign Up Genius if you are contacted.

For parents who are not requested to attend a conference, if a teacher has room in their schedule, teachers will email a Sign Up Genius link on Tuesday, October 20, inviting parents to fill open slots they may have.

Please use your Infinite Campus login to view your student’s grades to have available when you attend a conference, or ask your child to show you their grades on their chromebook. Parents that sign up for conferences will need to watch their email for the Zoom link and sign in at their designated start time based on the Sign Up Genius registration.

As always, you are welcome to email your student’s teachers at any time to check in and see how your child is progressing. There is information below that provides times that various teachers may be unavailable because of school activities. (We have a lot to work around!)

Also, on the 26th at 6:30pm via Zoom, Dori Roth (Hesston College) will be available to help senior students and parents gain information on Financial Aid & how to begin to work through the FAFSA. Dori brings multiple years of experience in admissions/financial aid and has been a great resource for HHS students and families. A Zoom link will be emailed to all senior parents October 26.

Communication between teachers and parents is important in the success of each student. Thank you for supporting your child and working with us during a very unique time!

Sincerely,

Courtney Hiebert, Counselor
