Requests for Conferences and Appointments

Conferences with Teachers
Parents requesting an appointment with their child’s teacher should either write a letter requesting an appointment or visit the P.S. 198 Main Office and request an Appointment Request Form. The teacher will send home an “Appointment Granted Form” with a convenient date, time and meeting location. However, an exception will be made upon the assessment of an emergency.

It is not good practice for teachers to stop to speak with parents during the morning line-up and/or dismissal times as it interferes with the children’s instructional time and appropriate supervision. In addition, it is strongly advised that scheduled appointments provide parents/guardians with focused attention in addressing personal concerns.

Conferences with Principal and Assistant Principals
Any parent who desires to meet with the principal and/or the assistant principal(s) should use the Appointment Request Form if the principal or assistant principal(s) are unavailable to meet with the parent at that given moment. Every effort will be made to speak with parents and alleviate their concerns.
