The website will be available beginning Friday, September 29 at 3:00 p.m. and will close Sunday, October 8 at 11:59 p.m. Important Details Conferences are scheduled for 15 minutes only. One 15 minute conference time per student. If you have more than one student at Montclair, please try to schedule conferences with 15 minutes in between each conference, in the event that a conference schedule gets backed up. If your student’s conference includes Mrs. Brokaw, Mr. Clark, Mrs. Moody, Mrs. Becker, Mrs. Reger and/or Mrs. Reid, an appointment may have been scheduled for your student and their siblings. If a scheduled time is pre-arranged, you will be contacted. Register (new users) Enter your email address and push “Login/Create Account”.

Reminders At any time you can click on “printable schedule” and print the resulting web page to get a hard copy of your schedule.
