Parent-Teacher Conferences – October 9-10

Parent-Teacher Conferences at Brebeuf Jesuit are designed to keep parents informed about their child’s progress, answer questions, and further develop a plan for a student’s future. Please see below for more information and scheduling details.


Thursday, October 2 UPDATE

The following was emailed to all current parents at 8:15 p.m. on Thursday, October 2.

After careful consideration, seeing many full sign-ups for Parent-Teacher Conferences, we’ve decided to add one hour to the Parent-Teacher Conference schedule on Tuesday, October 9, and to dismiss classes a bit early to make that possible. Next Tuesday will now be an Early Dismissal Day 1 Schedule, with students dismissed at 2:10 p.m. Parent-Teacher Conferences will now begin at 3:00 p.m., and end at 7:00 p.m. These new appointment slots from 3:00-4:00 p.m. will be available on the Pick-a-Time platform, beginning this evening.

We were thrilled by the response of the community to making Parent-Teacher Conference appointments this year, but, as a result, many teacher’s schedules quickly became full and parents were unable to schedule the time they needed. While one hour is all that we could add at this late date, we do plan to expand the time of the event even more in the future.

We do recognize that the adjusted dismissal time can be a strain for families picking up students at the end of the school day. In an effort to minimize this as a concern, we will be opening the Mohr Information Commons for quiet study to any students whose parents are unable to pick them up at 2:10 p.m.

We thank you for your flexibility toward this adjustment, as well as your desire to maintain open communication with our faculty. Thank you for all you do.

AMDG,
Greg VanSlambrook

  • If you arrive without a scheduled appointment with a particular teacher, there may be the opportunity for walk-up conferences, depending on that teacher’s timing of scheduled appointments. Teachers available for walk-up conferences will have a green table tent to indicate free time.
  • We always welcome communication with our families. If you are unable to attend this event or cannot find a time that works with your schedule, please feel free to contact a teacher directly. Teachers will respond to requests within 1-2 business days to set up a mutually convenient time for a phone call or face-to-face meeting.
