CMS Conferences Reminder
We invite you to join us for Parent/Guardian/Teacher conferences from 3-7:30pm on Tuesday, October 6 and Thursday October 8. All conferences will be done virtually using Zoom.
You can schedule conferences by utilizing pickatime conference scheduler. Your student's ID (found in Campus) is the required login and their birthday (DD/MM/YYYY) is the password.

Each conference will be a maximum of 10 minutes long. Should you need additional time, we ask for you to schedule a meeting outside of the conference nights with your student's teacher.
As this is a new format for CMS, we respectfully request that you try to limit the number of conferences you select to attend, each teacher will have a limited amount of spots available.

If you are interested in conferencing with your student's dean, counselor, speech pathologist or school psychologist you will need to contact them directly to set up an appointment.

The Pickatime conference scheduler will close on October 4th at 10 pm.
