What's happening Around School...

Parent/Teacher Conferences-
At this time, you should have received an email from Principal  Andy  Phillips explaining  the following information :

Middle school conferences are scheduled for Thursday, March 2 and Friday, March 3 (12:55-2:50).  As in the past, parents will have the opportunity to schedule a conference with any one of their child's Core teachers.  Special Area teachers will be available for drop-in conferences. 
Conferences can be scheduled online using Home Access Center (https://hac.tesd.net/ ).  While HAC remains open throughout the school year, online conference scheduling will only be available from Friday, February 10th(10:00AM) through Friday, February 17th (11:59PM).  Please call T/E Middle School's main office at (610)240-1200 if there are no available conference times for the teacher that you prefer to meet with or if you would like to make any changes after the scheduling window closes.
Instructions for accessing the scheduling system can be found by clicking here.   If you have forgotten your HAC username or password, please follow the link on the HAC homepage to recover your login information.  Parents who do not have internet access or who prefer not to schedule online will still have the option of scheduling by phone by contacting T/E Middle School's main office at (610)240-1200.
