We would like to invite all of our families to participate in our conferences. While we realize that many of you are in consistent contact with our teachers, it’s always good to have a moment where we solely focus on communication with our families about their child’s progress.

This year, motivated by our unique virus-related concerns, we’ve decided to primarily offer conferences virtually to our families. This will minimize person-to-person contact while still offering an opportunity to discuss successes and concerns.  We are hopeful that this new approach may be popular enough that it becomes standardized in the future.

From a parent’s perspective, you no longer need to travel to the school, navigate our hallways, and wait in line to see your student’s teachers. Additionally, for those of you who have younger children in your household, you won’t need to locate a sitter for the evening. We perceive all of these things as pluses for our families.

On Tuesday, you will get an email from the school that contains a link to all of your student’s teachers. Once you open this document, you will see a listing of all the teachers in Muscatine High School. From this document, you simply locate your student’s teachers, go to their link, and click on the time that you want to conference. Once you make your selection, you will receive an invitation to a Google Meet for the day and time you selected. Once that day and time arrive, you go to the invitation that was sent and click on it. You are now ready to conference with your teacher!

Please be aware that conferences will be scheduled in 15 minute increments and teachers will need to move from one virtual conference to another. If any of you want to conference for a longer period of time, please mention this to your child’s teacher and they will set up another time to make contact with you.

If you require an in-person conference, we will try and accommodate your wishes. In-person conferences will be the week following evening conferences and will be connected to staff availability. While we’d like to accommodate these requests by having all your child’s teachers present, this won’t be an option. You will need to indicate which teachers are priorities for you so that we can accommodate as much as possible.

Should you have issues signing up for a conference, please call the high school at 563-263-6141 and mention that you want to set up a conference. One of our office staff will assist you in setting up conferences.

We look forward to this new approach and hope that you will find it beneficial on your end. We are looking forward to your email response.

Re: Conferencias de Muscatine High School

Fechas y Horarios:  Lunes, 21 de octubre de 4:00 a 7:30 p.m.

                                Miércoles, 23 de octubre de 4:00 – 7:30 PM

                                Jueves,  24 de octubre de 1:45 – 3:45 p.m.

Nos gustaría invitar a todas nuestras familias a participar en nuestras conferencias. Mientras nos damos cuenta de que muchos de ustedes están en contacto constante con nuestros maestros, siempre es bueno tener un momento en el que nos concentremos únicamente en la comunicación con nuestras familias sobre el progreso de sus hijos.

Este año, motivados por nuestras preocupaciones únicas relacionadas con el virus, hemos decidido ofrecer conferencias de manera virtual a nuestras familias. Esto minimizará el contacto de persona a persona y, al mismo tiempo, ofrecerá la oportunidad de hablar de los éxitos y las preocupaciones. Tenemos la esperanza de que este nuevo procedimiento sea lo suficientemente popular para estandarizarlos en el futuro.

Desde la perspectiva de los padres, no necesitan viajar a la escuela, navegar por nuestros pasillos y esperar en la fila para ver a los maestros de sus niños. Adicionalmente, para aquellos de ustedes que tienen niños más pequeños en su hogar, no necesitan una niñera para la noche. Nosotros percibimos todas estas cosas como ventajas para nuestras familias.

El martes, recibirá un correo electrónico de la escuela que contiene un enlace de todos los maestros de su estudiante. Una vez que abra este documento, verá una lista de todos los maestros de la Escuela Muscatine High. Desde este documento, simplemente ubique a los maestros de su estudiante, vaya a su enlace y haga clic en la hora a la que desea realizar la conferencia. Una vez que realice su selección, recibirá una invitación a Google Meet para el día y la hora que seleccionó. Una vez que llegue ese día y hora, acceda a la invitación que se envió y haga clic en ella. ¡Está listo para la conferencia con su maestro!

Tenga en cuenta que las conferencias se programan en incrementos de 15 minutos y los maestros deberán pasar de una conferencia virtual a otra. Si alguno de ustedes desea tener una conferencia por un período de tiempo más largo, por favor mencione esto al maestro de su hijo y ellos programan otra hora para comunicarse con usted.

Si necesita una conferencia en persona, intentaremos acomodar sus deseos. Las conferencias en persona serán la semana siguiente a las conferencias vespertinas y estarán conectadas a la disponibilidad del personal. Mientras  nos gustaría atender estas solicitudes, al tener presentes a todos sus maestros de su hijo, esto no será una opción. Deberá indicar qué maestros son prioritarios para usted para que podamos adaptarnos tanto como sea posible.

Si tiene problemas para inscribirse en una conferencia, llame a la high school al 563-263-6141 y mencione que desea una conferencia. Uno de los miembros del personal de nuestra oficina lo ayudará a organizar  su conferencia.

Esperamos con interés este nuevo método  y esperamos que lo encuentre beneficioso por su parte. Esperamos su respuesta por correo electrónico.
