Parent Teacher Interviews will take place on Thursday March 9th from 2-4pm and 6-8 pm.
Parents contacts have been sent an email with information regarding the online registration process, and the link to the online scheduler. If you did not receive the email with the link, please follow the following 4 step process:
STEP ONE: Connect to https://ptcfast.com/schools/Valleyview_Secondary_School
STEP TWO: Select the teachers you wish to meet from the list. You may select multiple teachers. You may also select teachers for all of your children at VSS at the same time. There is one exception… if two or more of your children share the SAME teacher, then you must complete the scheduling for one child at a time.
STEP THREE: You will be prompted to enter some information including your email address. An email address is required to continue to the next step and book the appointments. The email address will only be used to book appointments and send you reminders.
STEP FOUR: In this final step, you will be asked to select the times you wish for an interview from a list of times that are available. If you have any troubles with our new system, please don’t hesitate to give us a call at the school at 250-372-5231. The scheduler will be closed on March 9 at 12:00 pm.
