Parent-Teacher Conference Zoom Sign-Up
Dear Families of Hillcrest High Students,
Parent-Teacher conferences are once again upon us. They will be held February 23rd (from 3:30-7:30 p.m.) and February 24th (from 3:30-7:00). Similar to the Fall, we will again be holding our Parent-Teacher Conferences virtually using Zoom. In order to serve families more effectively, we have chosen not to have a strict schedule for our virtual meetings. Instead, teachers will be available in their Zoom meetings for the entirety of the conference, allowing families to join in at their leisure. If the teachers are in a meeting with another family, you will be placed in a virtual “waiting room”. Zoom does not have an option to let you know where you are “in line” in the waiting room, but our intention is for meetings to last no more than 5 minutes. As such, you should not be in a “waiting room” too long. If a teacher has not yet started the Zoom meeting, you will see “Waiting for the host to start this meeting.” If a teacher is with another family, you will see “Please wait, the meeting host will let you in soon.”
Parent teacher conference are:
February 23rd, 3:30-7:30 p.m.
February 24th, 3:30-7:00 p.m.

UHSAA Athletic Participation Guideline:
If a student participates in a complete season of a UHSAA sanctioned sport and the school determines the sport aligns with the course standards, the school may award the student 0.50 units of PE credit. If the student completes an additional season with a different sport and the school determines the sport aligns with course standards, the school may award the student another 0.5 units of PE credit. A maximum of 1.0 credit can be earned by participating in a sport outside of a student’s regular class schedule. UHSAA athletic participation may be awarded for Participation Skills and Techniques and/or Individual Lifetime Activities (PST and PE Elective). If PST and PE Elective are already completed, credit can be applied to general elective credit. Athletic participation credit does not apply to Fitness for Life/Lifetime Fitness credit.
