You will need to sign up much the same way as you did for fall parent ­teacher conferences. If you do not have easy access to a computer, please feel free to use one of our school computers in the ITC. Also, a conference Help Line (847-­964-­5035) will be available to you during regular weekday business hours (9-­5), beginning on Thursday, January 23.

All Marie Murphy students will have an early dismissal (11:00 a.m.) on Wednesday, February 12, and Thursday, February 13, which are the officially designated winter conference days.

Additional Conferences

If you wish to conference with your child’s other teachers (e.g., foreign language, Allied Arts, P.E.), they are available on the regular conference dates of February 12 and 13 to meet with you.  For these conferences, you must sign up separately, using this link:  Allied Arts, Foreign Language, P.E.
