This is a reminder that if your child has lice, they must be treated with an approved method.  After you have checked their heads and removed nits, please have them come into the office so they we can offer another lice-check before re-entry.  Please remember to keep checking for nits and pulling them out.

Thank you!

Signing up for your conference time will take place using an online scheduling tool called Sign Up Genius. This is a web-based system that allows you to choose your conference time.

This email is a notification of when scheduling will “open.” The school felt it would be most equitable if we announced the opportunity to sign-up for conferences in advance.

For families who also have more than one student at Horizons, the Fall Conferences Sign Up Genius will be available Monday, October 9 at 3:45pm.

For all other families, the Fall Conferences Sign Up Genius will be available for scheduling Wednesday, October 11 at 3:45pm.


This does not mean you must schedule your conference as soon as you receive the invite from Sign Up Genius; the scheduling window will be open until October 24th, 2017. However, we suggest scheduling early to ensure you can create a conference appointment that works with your family’s schedule. Please check your email sometime after the relevant time stated above for detailed information about how Sign Up Genius works, you will receive instructions about how to sign up for your student-led conference.
