Parent/Teacher Conferences will be held on Friday, October 23rd from 8:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m. We are using the online scheduling system to arrange conferences.
Teams hold different types of conferences and they will send home notices with students indicating whether you would sign up for an individual or group conference time slot. If you do not receive information from your student’s team, you may sign up for the time that works best for you. Contact a teacher on your student’s team for specific questions or concerns about conferences.
Parents – if you do not receive a follow-up email within an hour of registering your student’s name, your name and your email address, we suggest you check your spam filter to see if it has put the email in a folder (typically called JUNK or SPAM).
If you need help with the online system or you do not have internet access, please contact our Guidance Office at 557-4694.

Children at Evans may not always have the necessary toiletry items or cleaning supplies to eliminate germs in their homes. Lack of these basic necessities can lead to increased illnesses and absences.
