Message from the Principal


October 12, 2021


Dear Monarch Families,

It's time to sign up for fall conferences. Conferences will take place from October 21st through the 26th.


We strongly encourage families to attend conferences in person. If you will need a telephone or video conference instead, please let your teachers know so they can plan accordingly. Time slots can fill up quickly, so please follow these directions at your earliest convenience.


If you are going to sign up through your smart phone, your child's teacher will provide a password to text to the following number, (833) 411-0833. This is the easiest way to access the schedule for each teacher. You will receive a Seesaw message from the teacher(s).


If you prefer to sign up through a computer...

1. Please go to:

2. If you have multiple PK-3 students at DES (this doesn't include Broadway School), click "Register for Multiple Conferences" in the yellow box.

3. Select your preferred time.

4. Enter required information. (E-mail address is not required, but if you enter one, you will receive a confirmation and a reminder of the conference prior to the date.)

5. Click “Sign Up for Your Conference” near the bottom of the screen.

6. You’re done! That’s all there is to it.
