MRSS uses an appointment-based system for Student Led Conferences. The Student-Led Conferences are held twice a year. Next year’s dates are TBA.
- Parents need to create an account. Once you’ve created the account a confirmation email will be sent to you. This email will allow you to register your student with specific teachers.
- Usually the return email comes within a few minutes.
- Closer to the date a schedule/reminder will be sent to your email address.
- The website include tutorials and help pages.
Appointment slots fill up QUICKLY. If the teacher(s) you wish to meet with are fully booked and unavailable, please contact them directly by calling the school or by email.

FAQ - Frequently Asked Questions
Why Five minute appointments?
Feedback from other schools indicates that five minutes is sufficient and still creates enough appointments for teachers to connect with as many parents as the “drop in format”.
What if my son or daughter has the same teacher for two subjects, can I get more time?
In most circumstances, 5 minutes will be enough; however more time can be added. The PTC system does not let the parent adjust the time but it can be done by the system administrator. Please contact the school if you feel you will need a 10-minute appointment. There is no guarantee of this accommodation.
What if I cannot get an appointment?
Teachers remain committed to connecting with parents as a part of the Student Led conference process. Please feel free to e-mail teachers and ask for an update on your son or daughter. During the event the office will maintain a list for each teacher, so if you cannot email the teacher please visit the school office and we will add your name to the teacher contact list.
Can we still drop in looking to find a moment with a teacher?
Teachers will not be available for drop in appointments. Our appointment slots book up fast. It is extremely unlikely that there will be a free slot. Alternatively, contact teachers directly by email to set up an an alternative date or contact them by telephone at the school.
What if I lack computer or smartphone access?
If computer or smart phone access is not available parents can call the school to book appointments. Appointment bookings will close a few days prior to the Student Led Conferences as a part of the preparation process.
