• Parent-Teacher Conferences

     

    Parent-Teacher Conferences are held twice a year, once during Semester 1 and once during Semester 2.

    Elementary and middle schools have early release days that correspond with "conference week".

    Early Release Days for the 2019-2020 school year are:
    Semester 1- October 23rd & 24th
    Semester 2- February 19th & 20th

    Students will be dismissed at 12:50 PM on those days. If your student is a walker/car rider/daycare rider, 
    please make any necessary transportation arrangements for your child. Buses will drop students off at their stop at the earlier time.


    Ferguson Elementary will be utilizing an online scheduling system for conferences. Parents will sign up for conferences online via the link below. Parents will only be able to sign up for conferences during the sign-up window. If you do not see teacher names listed when you click the link below, the conference sign-up window is not open yet.

     

    The online sign-up window for October conferences is now closed.  

    Please contact your child’s teacher if you still need to schedule your 
    parent-teacher conference.
