Message from the Principal

March 6, 2023


Dear DES Families,

It's time to sign up for Spring Conferences that will take place between March 14 to the 22nd.

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 have a smart phone, sign up is easy.  By the end of the school day on Monday, March 6th, your child's teacher will provide a password through our Seesaw account to text to the following number, (833) 411-0833. 

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

1. Please go to:  This will access our PK-3rd grade staff and schedules.

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.  You will have to go to the following link for Broadway Elementary: www.myconferencetime/broadway

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.  Thanks for scheduling, and we look forward to seeing you soon!
