The four Dashboards — Preschool, Lower, Middle, and Upper —were created so that you don't have to waste time searching through old emails to find that announcement or permission slip.


The Dashboard provides "Inbox Relief" with:

  • an archive of emails from the Division Head
  • a link to the always-updating Pelican Brief
  • organized folders containing key resources and information:
    • Documents (see below) 
    • Report and Absence
    • Contacts

The Dashboard also keeps you connected with: 

  • Division events
  • Packer Stories and social media 
  • a link to the Faculty/Staff in that division

 

Use the Documents section as your #1 resource.

Documents represents an major improvement in our parent communications.

Get in the habit of checking Documents to find policies, forms, summer reading lists, and other downloads.
