Re: Introduction to the new SchoolTool Parent Portal
Dear Parents and Guardians:
The New Hartford Jr. / Sr. High Schools continue to improve ways to provide information to you, allowing you to be more involved in your student’s academic success. To improve our student information system we have moved to a new system called schooltool. There are many enhancements to this system including a mobile app which is available in the Apple app store and the Google play store. To increase our communications with you, we are implementing the new Parent/Student Portal in the beginning of the 2016 – 2017 school year.
The new schooltool Parent Portal will include student grades, schedules, attendance, progress and demographic information in a friendly easy to use format. We hope that the access to this information will increase communication between school and home.
The Portal will be accessible through the District Website, the Jr. or Sr. High Homepages, or the Mobile App. Presently, students have access to the portal with their normal school username and password and will be able to retrieve schedules and information when they become available.
As with any new system, we would like to ensure all data is correct and up to date. We will need to link each parent account with his/her student(s). This is different than the previous system and all parents must register to receive an account connected to his/her student(s).
Included with this letter is an application form, which when completed and updated in the system, will allow you access to the Parent Portal. Once your account is set up, you will be notified via the email address you provided. A quick Tutorial Guide will be included in the email and is also available on the District website under the parent portal section.
Please complete and sign the Parent Portal Access Form and return to the Jr. or Sr. High School Main Office.
Thank you in advance for completing the form and returning it to the school. Additionally, thank you for your continued interest and communication regarding the success of your student’s academic progress.If you have questions please contact us at: email@example.com
