The spring parent-teacher conferences will take place:
- Wednesday, October 21st from 2:30 – 6:00 pm
Due to COVID health and safety protocols, we are encouraging virtual online meetings held on Microsoft Teams using a guest sign-in that teachers will send to parents once they have booked and appointment. Parents can book their conferences using our online system which allows you to select your appointments to suit your schedule. It will also allow you to coordinate meeting times if you have more than one child. This program is simple and easy to use.
Parents can book conferences online now. Booking closes at noon on Monday, October 19th.
How to Book Your Appointments:
Go to www.bss.schoolappointments.com, click on the “Register” tab and fill in the registration form to create an account. Once you have successfully registered, you can login to the system using your new user id & password. You must register each of your children with the “add a student” button.
You can schedule appointments for any student you have added to the system by clicking on the “PTI: October 2020” button beside the student’s name. You are then taken to a page where you can select the teachers with whom you wish to meet. Multiple teachers can be selected by using the “Ctrl” key on a PC keyboard or the “Command” key on a Macintosh keyboard.
Teacher Appointment Calendars
You will be shown the calendars of the selected teachers. It also shows appointment times that are unavailable for booking. You may select appointment times by simply clicking the check boxes or by clicking in the time block beside the check box. Once an appointment time has been selected it will change to green. If no appointments are available, click on the “Call Back” button at the top of the list.
Note: It is not possible for you to select more than one appointment at the same time or to select more than one appointment with the same teacher.
Parents with More Than One Student
If you have more than one student at the school, the teacher appointment calendars will have an additional feature displayed when the second (or third, etc.) student bookings are made. If a sibling has an appointment booked, the student’s name will be displayed for you, thus making it easier to book adjacent appointments.
Appointments Booked Successfully
Once the appointments are booked the screen will display the list of appointments for the student. If you click on the “Return to Home Page” button, you will return to the home page with your students and appointments listed. You can book additional appointments or book appointments for another student.
Printing Parent Appointment Schedule
From the home page it is possible for you to generate a PDF document with the list of your appointments. By clicking on the “Print Appointments” button a window will pop-up asking you what you wish to do with the document. In Internet Explorer, it is recommended that you click the “Save” button, save the file and then click “Open” to view the file. IE sometimes has a problem downloading and opening PDF documents that are generated from web sites.
Click “Open” after the download is complete to view the PDF.
