NEST+m Spring 2021 Parent/Teacher Conferences
NEST+m Spring 2021 Parent/Teacher Conferences will be held on the dates below:
Evening Conferences: Thursday March 18th: 5:00pm - 7:30pm*
Afternoon Conferences: Friday March 19th: 12:50 - 2:50pm
If there is something you need to discuss with your child’s teacher now, please don’t wait for conferences! Teachers have 20 minutes of office hours daily- families are encouraged to meet with teachers during this time to discuss any questions or concerns.
We hope that you leave conferences feeling supported, optimistic, and connected to our community, and that you have clear next steps to help your child further their growth. We also want you to leave conferences knowing that the lines of communication are always open, and we are here for you and your family.
PLEASE Prioritize seeing 3 teachers. In order for us to accommodate the largest number of families during Parent-Teacher Conference hours, we are asking families to limit their sign-ups to see 3 teachers per student.

Signing Up and Attending Conferences
Sign-up sheets went live on this webpage on Thursday, March 11th at 1pm. When you sign up for conferences you will see that 5 minute conferences appear to be 6 minutes, and 10 minute conferences appear to be 11 minutes. All conferences will end promptly after 5/10 minutes. The additional minute allows teachers to admit guests from the Zoom waiting room for the next conference.
Please space out the time slots you select for conferences. We’ll need to be firm with our start and end times, so make sure you give yourself enough time to close out one Zoom link, and open the next one. We recommend 5 or more minutes in between conference times.
It is best to use your child’s DOE Zoom account to attend conferences. Or, in your personal Zoom account, make sure your Zoom name is your child’s name. For siblings, use the students’ last name. This will ensure that teachers admit guests from the waiting room in the correct order.
Technical challenges. We hope that there will be no technical difficulties, but recognizing that we are working on scheduling conferences for the families of 1800 students, it is likely that some parents may experience connectivity or other technical challenges. If that happens please don’t worry–we are happy to reschedule. Reach out to your child’s teacher by email to set up an alternate time for a Zoom conference or a phone call.
