    NPHS Spring 2019 conferences March 7th & March 12th

    2-8pm. School will dismiss at 1:15 on these days.  

    Conferences will take place in teachers' classrooms. To help better accommodate for parent's schedules, we will use "My Conference Time" scheduler where you can schedule individual conferences with teachers. Parents and guardians can use the link:https://www.myconferencetime.com/northpolk/ to access any individual teacher's schedule.  
    INSTRUCTIONS:   
    1. click on the link: MyConferenceTime   
    2. click on the NPHS High School folder 
    3. select a teacher's name, and   
    4. click on the time.   
    It's as simple as that! Once you click on the time, the site will prompt you to enter your student's name and your email address for email notification and reminders.  
    Also, parents will still have the option to attend conferences either night without signing up for a time.  
    We look forward to seeing you at P/T conferences in March.
