Weekly Parent Email – January 29, 2021

January 29, 2021

As you may know, Parent-Mentor Conferences and Parent-Mentor Updates start this Monday, February 1, and run through Friday, February 5. Read below to learn more about each option and decide which one is right for you:

Parent-Mentor Update (PMU): If you’re happy with your student’s progress but still want a personal update from their mentor, request a PMU. The mentor will send you a detailed email describing how your student is doing and informing you of any concerns by February 12.

Parent-Mentor Conference (PMC): If you have a specific concern or in-depth question regarding one of your student’s courses, sign up for a PMC. These are 10-15 minute online meetings with the course mentor to get personalized insights on your student’s performance.

We look forward to meeting with you soon to make sure your student is inspired, challenged, and engaged! Please read on for more important updates for the week ahead.

Executive Director, LAU
