These links will be available from the SVMS web page and as a quick link under the Family & Students tab. Feel free to email the teacher, at your convenience, or click on the Zoom link to be added to their active Zoom Conference waiting room during scheduled Parent Teacher Conference times. If the teacher is currently visiting with another guest, they will add you to the conference as quickly as possible from the waiting room. To help keep waiting times reasonable, we encourage, if possible, lower valley parents to utilize March 16, and upper valley parents to utilize March 17.
