You may wish to ask your student to verify that a particular person will be in attendance, or to assist you in making special meeting arrangements. Of course, parents are encouraged to call faculty advisors, instructors, and other staff members anytime throughout the year to discuss issues over the phone or to arrange individual meetings.
