Fifth year PTM – appointment schedules
Parents/Guardians – By now, you should have now received your appointment schedules for the upcoming 5th year parent-teacher meeting which takes place tomorrow Thursday 13th Jan. 2022. Copies of schedule were distributed to students yesterday (posted where students were absent).
Meetings will be conducted via your son/daughter’s teams account. To join the PT meeting, log on to his/her teams account. Go to relevant team named ‘5th yr PTM – (name of teacher)’ at the times assigned on schedule. You will see that a meeting is in progress. Click on ‘Join’ and you will be admitted to the waiting room. Teacher will admit parents/guardians from the waiting room in line with schedule. After each meeting, leave that team and return to main screen where you can see all teams. Click into the next team on your schedule.
Teams can be accessed easiest by going to www.lcetb.ie, then microsoft 365, then click on teams. You will need your son/daughter’s username e.g. email@example.com and his/her password. It is strongly advisable to these details from your son/daughter in advance and do a trial run.
Please check the device you will use for meetings well in advance. Please ensure that it is fully-charged and that camera and microphone/speaker are working correctly. You may wear headphones/earphones if you wish.
