Dear Parents: Red Bud Elementary School will hold Parent Teacher Conferences on Tuesday, October 27th, and Thursday, October 29th from 4:00 to 8:00 p.m. In addition, students will have early dismissal on Tuesday, October 27th and Thursday, October 29th at 1:58 p.m., and there will be NO SCHOOL for students on Friday, October 30th. The goal of the Parent-Teacher Conferences is to allow parents and teachers to get acquainted, establish a positive relationship, and share information which will help make the student's school experience a more positive, beneficial one. This year, our school district has implemented an online scheduling system. If you have supplied an email address at registration, you will receive an email tomorrow morning (Tuesday, September 29th) with an account activation code. The email will come from powerptc.net, so please be sure to check both your inbox and bulk mail. With this code you will be able to create an account with PowerPTC that will allow you to schedule your conferences online. We ask that you schedule your conferences with teachers through this system as soon as possible. If you wish to have a conference with your child's Title Instructor, Social Worker, Assistant Principal, or the Principal you must call the office to schedule. Detailed instructions for using PowerPTC can be found on the RBES webpage under the Parent/Teacher Conference Tab. Important Note: Secretaries will be available to assist you in scheduling from 9:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. by calling (618) 282-3858 for the following reasons:
• For those parents who do not have access to a computer.
• If you encounter problems using the online system.
• If you want to make an appointment to see your child's Title Instructor, Social Worker, Assistant Principal or Principal.
