Parent Communication & Parent/Teacher Conferences


Teachers and staff communicate with parents in a variety of ways; several of them are described below:

Progress Reports
Standards-based Progress Reports are sent home every twelve weeks with interim reports going out at the six-week mark. The first and second progress reports are discussed during the parent-teacher conferences. The final progress report is sent home with students on the last day of school.

Teachers in grades one through five use agenda books to communicate assignments and other information on a daily basis. Please check your child’s agenda nightly to assure that you are receiving regular communication. Replacement agendas will cost $5.00.

Sierra Vista Vision
A bi-weekly newsletter is sent out to all students on a regular basis. This newsletter has important events and announcement information. It is available on the school webpage.

Sierra Vista List Serve
We have arranged for all school communication to be distributed via email. Please subscribe to the Sierra Vista List Serve for the most accurate and up to date school news. This method will be used as our primary source of communication in the event of an emergency. Sign up on the school webpage.


Formal parent/teacher conferences are scheduled twice annually. The purpose is to discuss academic performance. Students will not attend school/classes on the specified conference dates so that parents and teachers may meet for conferences during this time. These conferences are very important and teachers make every effort to accommodate parent schedules.

Conferences for 2013-2014 will be:

Fall - November 25th & 26th (Mon & Tue)
Spring – March 6th & 7th (Thurs & Fri)

In addition, conferences may be scheduled outside of the formal conference schedule if parents or teachers have concerns about a student’s academic progress. These conferences should be scheduled through the classroom teacher.
