Both parents are deaf
So I have a first grade student who is in a virtual class and both of her parents are deaf so they cannot hear what is going on in the class or when the teacher needs to discuss something with them. What would you do to make sure the students parents feel apart of their child's education?

You can email the parents of the student a daily agenda, this will help them to know what their student is needing to do in class. Now, if there is an issue I would reach out to the school to get an interpreter to interpret your concerns. Things can get lost in translation if email concerns as English is not always a well understood language in the deaf community.

Written communication is important in this situation. Emails and letters home should be utilized. As for virtual learning, most sites like Microsoft Teams and Zoom that are used for classes have a chat feature. This should be utilized for discussions during class time.
