Message from Mrs. Rach
Teachers are always available to meet with families to discuss their child’s progress. While there is no set day for conferences, teachers will be organizing their own schedules for conferences via Sign Up Genius. Due to meetings and other conflicts, some teachers may have different times available. Please click on the Sign Up Genius links below if you would like to schedule a time to meet with your learner's teacher. If you would like to schedule an alternate time/day, please speak with your learner's teacher.
 
Also: Please complete this form to let our teachers know if you prefer meeting face to face at Cushing or virtual via Google Meet, as well as, what you’d like to discuss.
