Back to School Supply Lists!​​

Are you already seeing back to school sales? We have
School Supply lists for you! We will continue to upload them as we receive them, so keep on checking often! 

...and don't forget, we have the lists, uniform information, and many other helpful resources under the Parents tab. 

Front Desk Volunteers Needed

We are looking for volunteers to take shifts in at least 1 hour increments to sit at the front desk, make sure people sign in, and direct them to the main office. The most important shift to cover first is 11am-1pm, though other times of the day will be needed as well. 

Info on obtaining the school clearances can be found on the
Clearances page . These will need to be submitted to the school secretary, Ms. Sue, before volunteering can begin. 

Please contact
Anna , or sign up right here ....and let your friends, and neighbors know about this opportunity!

Access Your Student's Information On-Line!

Parents/guardians can access their student(s) classroom assignments and other information via the SDP website.  You will need your student's SDP-assigned 7-digit ID number (this number can be found on your student's report card).

Go to The Philadelphia School District's Website , and follow the Parents link, or go to the School District's Family Portal.  Log-in, or create an account if you don't have one.

You will need to link your student's account to yours. Click on "My Students" and follow the instructions. Once the SDP links your students to your account (24-72 hours), you will then be able to click on "Family Net" and access all sorts of goodies on your student. 

For detailed step-by-step instructions, please click here .  If you need to troubleshoot the process, please call 215-400-4000 for assistance.
