Parent Communication

One of our goals is to involve parents and families in our school in every possible way. We send out periodic voice messages using the IRIS system and will also start sending email reminders and newsletters like this one. It is critical that the contact information in the FOCUS system, also known as Parent Portal is up to date so we can get in touch with you. If you know of someone who did not receive this email, please pass this message along. The link to parent portal is found below. Information about using Parent Portal and creating an account can be found on the Bay District website. www.bay.k12.fl.us
