Need help scheduling conferences? Use the Conference Schedule Instructions for assistance.

This year’s Parent Teacher Conferences will be delivered virtually via Google Meets. Due to security changes Google has implemented specifically for Google Meet within a school district, you will not be able to join the Google Meet session for your child’s conference without having a Google account. If you already have a Google account (such as a Gmail address), there is nothing more you need to do. However, you will be prompted to login with a Google account before you are allowed to access the Google Meet session for your child’s Parent/Teacher conference.

If you do not have a personal Google account, you may also use your child’s Google account to access the meeting. As a reminder, your child’s username and password for their LSR7 Google account can be found by clicking the Student Credentials tab in the PowerSchool parent portal. We suggest having your child’s username (their full email address including the @lsr7.net) and password ready in preparation for the virtual parent/teacher conference should you need it.
