Dear Highland Park Families


Dear Richardson Families,

Parent/Teacher Conferences are coming up soon and will be held on October 18th and 19th, 2017. We will be scheduling Parent/Teacher Conferences electronically this year with “Pick-A-Time”.

“Pick-A-Time” allows each family to schedule a conference by logging into the system, checking the teacher’s schedule, and clicking on the time desired. It also has a feature that will initiate an e-mail reminder. Additionally, you may log back into the program at a later date to change conference time(s), if a conflict arises. The system will be available for scheduling fromSeptember 25 – Oct. 13, 2017. The system is available from any computer (see directions attached to this letter).

A few things to know about conferences:

  • FIRST TIME USERS–Have your child’s lunch number and birthday accessiblein order to create an account.
  • Conference times are on a “first come, first serve” basis, please schedule one as soon as possible.
  • If your child has more than 1 teacher (applies to 5th and 6th graders), you will only schedule a conference with the homeroom teacher. If you would like to meet with one of the other teachers, please contact them directly via email.
  • If your child has more than one academic teacher (Learning Center, Speech, Reading Resource),all conferences will take place in the child’s homeroom and the other staff members will join you if required.
  • Art, Music and PE teachers will be available for conferences too. Just select their name(s) and schedule a time with that teacher.
  • 5th and 6th Grade Parents: If your child has a Traveling Art, Music or PE teacher you may contact them my email for a conference. Email addresses are available at
  • Mrs. Reidlinger (ASPIRE) will only be available on Wednesday, Oct. 18.

We believe “Pick-A-Time” will continue to simplify the entire process of Parent/Teacher Conference scheduling. We look forward to seeing each of you at Parent Teacher Conferences.

If you have any further questions, please contact the office at 986-2220.

Thank you,
