Dear Parents and Guardians:


Welcome back to the 2014 – 2015 school year! I am pleased to report that the first month has been quite successful and I believe that this trend will continue for the remaining nine months.

As you know from last year, the Parent Portal serves as a powerful communication tool between you and your child’s teacher. I encourage you to continue logging in on a regular basis (e.g. twice monthly) to stay up-dated regarding your child’s progress.

To log in, you will use the same username and password assigned to you (or the one you have personalized) from last year. Please feel free to contact my office if you require assistance. We’ll be happy to help. You may also visit the district website where you will find the link to the portal and a link for instructions regarding the Parent Portal and Realtime.

Thank you for your dedication and commitment!





Richard R. Corbett, Ed. D.
