Conferences are conducted arena style in the Commons.  You may park on the west side of the building and enter through the activities door.  Please bring your student with you to conferences as they are an integral part of the process.

Prior to arriving for conferences you should look-up/print your student’s progress report from Parent Portal.  This report will show your student’s current grades and teacher’s names.  Please note that paper copies of student’s grades and/or schedules will not be distributed at conferences.  You can locate the progress report in Parent Portal under Reports.  If you have not already activated your Parent Portal account, this would be a great time to sign up.  Staff will be available at the welcome table.

We are also conducting informational mini-sessions during conferences on Tuesday, October 16. Session titles/locations/times are as follows:

  • Learn how to use the MCIS (Minnesota Career Information System)  that your student uses for career and college exploration from 4:00pm-6:00pm in the CRC. Mrs. Halvorson will be available to demonstrate how to do occupation, college and scholarship sorts and much more.
