Parent-Teacher Conferences

Parent-Teacher Conferences
Posted on 10/24/2017

On November 20th and 21st, Hillsborough Middle School students are scheduled to dismiss at 12:30 pm to provide time for teachers to return in the evening for parent-teacher conferences.  


In recent years we have had requests for afternoon availability as well as evening, so you may see teachers offering availability during one evening session and one afternoon session in lieu of a second evening:

Monday, Nov. 20
1:00-3:30 pm and/or 6:00-8:30 pm
  
Tuesday, Nov. 21
1:00-3:30 pm and/or 6:00-8:30 pm

Scheduling conferences will take place online using the Genesis Parent Portal.  Starting Monday, November 6th at 8:00 am,  when you log into the Parent Portal in Genesis, you will see an additional tab for “conferences” available to you.  Under that tab, you will be able to request a conference selecting the week of 11/20/17.

This will open a listing of your child’s teachers along with their availability of conference times to schedule a meeting.

This particular forum is intended to provide brief (10 minute) conversations where there are specific needs or concerns to be discussed in a face-to-face setting.  Naturally, you are welcome to contact your child’s teachers or guidance counselor at any time throughout the year by phone or in person for a more extended conversation whenever needed.  Please do not be discouraged if your child’s conference schedule is full.  Parents are welcome to arrange a conference call or meeting at any time that is mutually convenient throughout the month of November or at any point in the year simply by contacting your child’s teachers or guidance counselor by phone or email directly.

The parent conferencing tab in Genesis will be available to you starting November 6th through November 17th.  Visit the HMS website at http://www.hms.htps.us to access the Genesis Parent Portal.  Directions for using the conference scheduling tab can be found here:  Parent Teacher Conferences 2017.pdf 

If you are unable to use the online system, please call us at (908) 431-6600 (option 2 for HMS) and we will gladly assist you with access to Genesis or to put you in touch with specific teachers for whom you are requesting a conference.  If you would like to schedule a conference with a Child Study Team member, Health/PE teacher, speech therapist or other educational specialist who may not be scheduled via Genesis, please contact that person directly by email or voicemail.

Sincerely,

Joseph Trybulski, Ed.D.
Principal
