How to Log in to the Parent Portal
- Find “Parents” among the links at the top of the website. Among the links on the left-hand side of the page, click on “Parent Portal." You will be shown the “Login” screen and be prompted for Username and Password.
- Username: Your username is either parent’s email address
Password: Your password will be the birthdate of the youngest child enrolled at St. Andrew’s.
(Please note that the birthdate is entered in the following format for a child born on July 8, 1996. This is an example: 7/8/96
- (There are no leading zeroes before the month and day, and the year is entered
with only the last 2 digits. Backslashes are used to separate month, day, and year.)
Each St. Andrew’s household must have at least one working email address in order to:
- access their “Parent Portal” for contact information
- schedule parent/teacher conferences in the fall, and
- retrieve grade reports.
- for regular weekly communication.
If you have any questions or encounter any problems with regard to parent portal access, please contact Lloret Moussa (firstname.lastname@example.org
). If you are having trouble at the Login screen, let Lloret know specifically what Username and Password you have entered so she can investigate the problem. Thank you.
