Parent Portal: Saving You Valuable Time!

The School District strongly encourages you to register for a Parent Portal account for your child listed below as soon as possible in order to take advantage of the options available through this system. (If you have registered for a portal account in the past, you do not need to register again, you will just need to add your child to your existing account.)

The Parent Portal is a tool that allows you to quickly re-register your child/ren in September of every year, eliminating the need to fill out a traditional paper emergency card for each of your children. The portal also provides you the ability to update emergency contact or medical information at any time, access daily attendance, view test scores, and print report cards.

To create a Parent Portal account, you will need the three pieces of information found on the bottom of this letter: 1. Your home phone number as listed in the school’s records 2. Your student’s identification number 3. Your student’s Verification Pass Code.  Please log onto to create your account. There are written directions and a 4-minute video explaining the process. 

Portal para Padres:  Para ahorrar su valioso tiempo!

El Distrito Escolar lo invita a que abra su propia cuenta en el Portal para Padres lo antes posible para que pueda aprovechar de las opciones disponibles por medio del sistema (según se explica a continuación).  Si usted ya se ha anotado no debe volver a hacerlo; solo deberá agregar el nombre de sus hijos a su cuenta existente.

El Portal para Padres es una herramienta que le permite volver a registrar a sus hijos en la escuela en Septiembre de cada año sin necesidad de completar la tarjeta de emergencia tradicional de cada niño/a.  Este sistema también le permite actualizar sus contactos de emergencia o datos  médicos en cualquier momento, además de brindarle acceso a la asistencia diaria de sus niños, revisar el puntaje de sus exámenes e imprimir los boletines de calificaciones.

Para crear una cuenta en el Portal para Padres usted debe contar con tres datos que se encuentran en la parte inferior de esta carta:  1.  El número de teléfono correspondiente a su hogar, según está anotado en los archivos de la escuela.  2.  El número de identificación de su alumno/a.  3.  El Código del Pase de Verificación de su alumno/a.  Por favor visite el sitio para crear su cuenta.  Allí encontrará instrucciones por escrito y un video de 4 minutos que le explicará el proceso a seguir.
