Once each semester, ETHS devotes time for students and their parents/guardians to meet with teachers and counselors to discuss their learning experiences. Conferences with teachers are scheduled to last five (5) minutes each and must be scheduled online during the conference sign-up period following the instructions listed below. Grade-level deans, counselors, social workers, psychologists, and academic advisors are also available to meet during conferences. Please contact them directly to make an appointment.
Parents/guardians can request interpreter services for conferences by contacting the Latino Liaison/Minority Languages Coordinator. All requests for interpreters must be made by 3:00pm two school days prior to conferences.
Parents/guardians may also request individual conferences with teachers or a grade-level team member anytime during the school year by calling or emailing your student's teacher and/or grade-level team member.
ETHS uses an online conference scheduling system. To sign up for conferences, parents/guardians or students can launch the online scheduling system beginning at 8:00am on the day conference sign-up begins. Online registration ends at 3:00pm on the day before conferences begin.
