Meet the Teacher Night – Thursday, September 23rd
This year we are offering online booking for the in-person “Meet the Teacher” evening. For those of you who have been at LFMSS for any length of time, you will recognize that booking specific times for the Meet the Teacher evening is different than what we have done in the past, pre-COVID. It has also typically involved our PAC and allowing time for some social connections. Within the current guidelines that would be much more difficult, so we are not able to do that this year.
Required Protocols for the Evening
- Visitors to the school are required to:
- Wear a mask when inside the school
- Sign in – you can do this at the teacher sessions you attend that you sign up for ahead of time (see below)
- Since we are still trying to minimize the number of people in the building and maintain social distancing as much as possible, we have set up the following:
- Group sizes per time slot will be a maximum of 12 people plus the teacher(s)
- Only one member / representative per family to attend
School Appointments Online
You will be able to register your student(s) and book your times online starting now until 5:00pm on Thursday, September 23.
Please go to www.lfmss.schoolappointments.com, click on the “register” tab and fill in the registration form to create an account. All previous accounts have been deleted and you will need to set up a new account for this school term. Once you have successfully registered, you can login to the system using your new user ID and password. You must register each of your children with the “add a student” button.
The booking system we are using should be familiar to families, since it is the same one we use for our Parent / Teacher interviews. This system allows you to select times to meet teachers to suit your schedule. It will also allow you to coordinate meeting times if you have more than one child. This program is simple and easy to use. For grade 8 to 12 students, you can book any of the 10 minute long time slots that are available for the teachers you wish to meet.
Grade 6 / 7 Times
Times for grade 6 and 7 students are to be booked with the Grade 6 team (comprised of Ms. Brathwaite, Mr. Devita and Mr. Lorensen) or Grade 7 team (comprised of Ms. Cottrell, Ms. Cho and Mrs. Price). You will only need to book one time slot for that team, not with each individual teacher.
Teacher Not Listed or Booked Up?
If the teacher you wish to meet is not listed on School Appointments online they are not available that evening. Also, some teachers may have no available time slots if they are already filled. We would encourage you to reach out to those teachers by e-mail if you have questions or still need to connect with them at a different time.
