Happy Friday Georgetown Families!
I wanted to let you know that teachers will be sending out invitations to sign-up for parent-teacher conferences shortly. Some may have gotten them out already in fact. Please look for these. Due to the ongoing pandemic and guidelines and restrictions that are in place for schools, we will be holding these meetings virtually, via Zoom. We lament the fact that we cannot have parents into the building and yearn for the days when we can return to more face-to-face interactions. Thank you for doing all that you are doing to partner with the school both for your child’s success academically and for keeping all of our students and staff and the greater community safe, allowing us to continue in-person instruction each day!
This year conferences will take place on the evenings of Monday, November 16, and Wednesday, November 18. We are using a program called “Calendly” to have you sign up for a meeting time with your child’s teacher. Once you choose a time, Calendly will generate a Zoom invitation unique to your meeting with the teacher and create a calendar event for you and the teacher with the Zoom information, time, date, etc. Please keep in mind that we need to schedule only one period per student and that conference times are limited to 15 minutes. Normally, when in person, we have ways to remind (as a building) when that 15 minutes is approaching, so bear with us as we work through how to do this in a virtual world as our teachers strive to ensure that they are timely in meeting with each of our families.
Thank you again for all you’re doing to help get the year off to such a great start at Georgetown! It’s difficult to believe that we are more than a 1/4 way through the year already. Enjoy your weekend, stay safe, and savor the extra hour of sleep!
