Daily Announcements

Parent/Teacher Conferences - Feb. 19 and Feb. 26, 2015

Willow River Elementary School will be scheduling parent/teacher conferences online through Family and Student Access (link is located at the top of the web page in the center column, above the Daily Announcements).

The window for scheduling conferences will open on Monday, Feb. 2, 2015. We would like all conferences scheduled by Tuesday, Feb. 17th. You will need your Family Access Login and Password to schedule a conference for your student. If you do not know your Login/Password, please contact the office at 715-377-3880.

Only one parent needs to login to schedule the conference and only one 15-minute conference is scheduled per student. If you have more than one student at Willow River, you will need to schedule a conference time for each of your students.  Remember to leave time between appointments to allow yourself "travel time" between classrooms (e.g., schedule first conference at 4:15, schedule second conference at 4:45).

Instructions for online conference scheduling are found by clicking on the link below.
