How to Sign Up for Parent Portal in Infinite Campus
Parents, the best way to keep up with your child’s grades is to sign up for the Parent Portal in Infinite Campus. Click here to learn how to set up your account.
If your child is returning to traditional school practices, please read this letter from Mr. Aviles regarding school policies.
Parents, please help!
The Federal Census is only given once every 10 years. The results of this census determine funding for our schools. This is how we get Title 1 and IDEA funding. Please make sure that you and others you know fill out this year’s census so that we can get the appropriate funding for your child’s education.

We love having parents as partners and volunteers to ensure that our Parent and Family Engagement Program is meaningful, supports student achievement, and builds capacity and effective relationships. Parents who sign up to be a Parent Volunteer can help our school build bridges between the home and school. Parents can be used to help with virtual school workshops and school activities, serve on school committees, and be used as a point of contact when needed. Even in the midst of a pandemic, we can work and serve together. Thank you in advance for your support!

Weekly Participation Rubric
Parents, please note that while we are learning virtually, that we will be giving participation grades for use in Achieve 3000, Lexia, and IXL.
Please see the attached rubric to see how your child’s teacher will grade your child’s participation.
Any students who have registered but have not came to the school to verify, please come by the school and do so any time this week. If you have any questions about your next steps please contact the school. Kindergarten parents who have not verified yet need to contact the school for next steps.
Please note that everyone entering the building must wear a face covering for the safety of our students and staff. We appreciate your cooperation, support, and understanding on this matter.
Mark your calendars and join us August 28th at 5:00 PM for our Virtual Title 1 meeting!
Remember that your students can still pick up a lunch from FRE!
Lunch is available from 11:00-1:00. We offer curbside delivery. If you pull up to the cafeteria in the front driveway, we will bring your child’s lunch out to you.
Verification Dates and Announcements
If you have tried to call the school within the last week, our phones have been down. We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused and thank you for your patience. If you need to reach us and can’t due to the phones being down, please contact Mr. Aviles or Ms. Weeks via email. Email address for all staff can be reached by clicking our “Employees” tab above.
If you have not already registed online, please do so as soon as possible. If you need assistance, you may come to the school from 9:00-3:00 and someone will help you.
Please note that siblings will be able to register on the same day. (So if you have a Pre-K student and a 3rd grader, you can register them both Monday.)

In that case, the verification process will still need to be completed.
