Parent/Teacher Conference Sign-ups

Kempsville High School hosts an opportunity to meet with your student's teachers all at the same time twice a month. Seating is limited, so it is imperative that you sign up in advance. There will not be registration on the day of the event. 

***All your information is kept private and only seen by the school counselors.***

Please see Smoke Signals for the sign-up link or contact your child's school counselor. 

Change in Contact Information?

Has your family moved? Have any of your phone numbers changed?

Please be sure and update this information with the School Counseling Office before the end of school! Many important pieces of information are sent home to students over the summer. If we do not have your new information on file, you will be missing out on report cards, test scores, back-to-school information, etc.

Please contact the school at 757.648.5461 should you have any questions or updates that need to be made.
