Parent/Teacher Conferences

Parents can view their conference schedule beginning Saturday by logging into HCPSS Connect and following the steps on page 2 of the parent directions


During conferences, if you experience any issues or if you have questions, please fill out the PMS Parent/Teacher Conference Request for Assistance form, and someone will contact you for assistance. 

Staff are monitoring this form the entire time of the conference windows on Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday. 

  • When logging into the actual Parent/Teacher Conference, parents will need to use their child's log-in credentials.

  • When joining a conference, parents should anticipate waiting to be "admitted" until the teacher finishes with the previous conference.
