Information About Parent-Teacher Interviews/Student-led Conferences

November 1, 2017

Dear Parents/Guardians,

Parent-Teacher Interviews/Student Led Conferences will be scheduled for after school on November 23 and for the morning of November 24 for students in SK to grade 8.

Henderson Ave. PS. is pleased to announce that we will be using an online process through Edsby to manage our Parent-Teacher interviews scheduling. Edsby is an intuitive, cloud-based platform that will allow families to easily reserve times to meet with their child’s teachers. YRDSB in partnership with Edsby have created a secure platform that protects the privacy of information for our YRDSB families. Many more Edsby features will be rolled out in months ahead.

Families will need to create an Edsby account to access the online appointment scheduler for their child’s parent-teacher interview. Only families who create an Edsby account prior to the schedule being opened on November 10 will have access. For help signing up for Parent-Teacher interviews, please visit http://bit.ly/edsbyparents. If you do not have access to a computer/technology, please let the office know and we can set up a time for you to do so at the school.

You will receive an email from York Region District School Board in the next two days with instructions on how to create an Edsby account. If you do not see the email, please check your junk mail folder to ensure you do not miss this opportunity.

If you have any questions about this process, please contact our main office.
