Fall conference sign-up begins September 24 at 8:00am

Online sign-up for fall conferences will begin at 8:00am on Thursday, September 24. Conferences will be held on Thursday, October 1, 1:30-4:30pm and 6:00-9:00pm.


Conferences remain as an opportunity for students and guardians to discuss academic support and/or student wellbeing with teachers as needed. This school year, fall conferences will be held remotely via Zoom. Conferences are designed to last five (5) minutes each. They are scheduled in 10-minute blocks to include 5 minutes of conference time and 5 minutes of transition time due to the remote environment.

  • October 1 is a non-attendance day for students. ETHS students are welcome and encouraged to attend conferences with their parent(s)/guardian(s).
  • October 2 is a Remote Learning Planning Day. Students are not required to engage in or submit work on this day. Educators will not provide new assignments for the day; attendance will not be taken.


Grade-level deans, counselors, social workers, psychologists, and academic advisors are also available to meet during conferences. 


Conference sign-up will close at 3:00pm on Wednesday, September 30. If the conference schedule does not meet your needs, or if you are not able to get an appointment with a teacher, you may email the teacher directly to schedule a time. 


If you speak a language other than English and would like to have an interpreter at conferences, contact Mercedes Fernández, Latino Liaison/Minority Languages Coordinator, at (847) 424-7166 or All requests for interpreters must be made by 3:00pm on September 29.


Prior to conferences, ETHS will share information about how to access individual conferences through Zoom links. Details and instructions will be emailed to parents/guardians. If you have any questions about conferences, please contact me at
