Powerschool Portal

On Friday, August 18 at 3:00 p.m. you will be able to log into the PowerSchool Student and Parent Portal to see what homeroom your child has been placed in for the upcoming school year. Your login and password were sent home with your child on Monday, June 19, 2017. Logging into the Portal will be the only way you will be able to see who your child's teacher is for the 2017-2018 school year. All veteran or returning parents can access the portal by visiting the Parent Portal at https://powerschool.longmeadow.k12.ma.us/public/. I’ve included a screenshot at the bottom of this email, that will provide some visual of what you are looking at to find your child’s homeroom teacher.
