Also, if your name contains a second capital letter or apostrophe, that is part of the user name. (ex. If I were a student, my user name would be: ColleenMcClenaghan Or, let’s say we had a student named Erin O’Boyle. Her user name would be: ErinO’Boyle)
Student passwords are their student number. For students that worked with Accelerated Reader, this is their AR password. Another way to get the password is to log in to your ProgressBook account. Click on My Account. From there, click on the My Students tab. Your children’s names should appear there. Their student number is the ID # listed.

Babies Abound: We are excited to welcome the two newest members of our staff family… Anthony Pius Colucy was born June 22. He weighed 7 lbs. 6 oz. Loftyn Claire Schweninger arrived June 26 weighing 8lbs. 11oz. Both families are home and enjoying their new lives as families of 3! Congratulations!
FACTS Update: Earlier this month every family received an email from FACTS Management Company with an invitation to Set up your Tuition Payment Plan. This email contains the family’s unique Customer ID and Registration Code, and is needed in order to activate the mandatory FACTS account, select a tuition payment plan option and set up bank account information. Kudos and thank you to all those who have completed the FACTS process to date!
All families are REQUIRED to enroll in FACTS and select a tuition payment plan option. School registration is not considered complete until an account has been activated, payment plan established and July (plus August if applicable) tuition payments have been processed. No matter which payment plan is chosen, the first payment is due and will be automatically debited on July 15th.
Please remember that a $150 late enrollment fee will be assessed to any family not completing their FACTS enrollment by July 1st and student homeroom assignments will not be posted if tuition payment plans are not up to date.
The deadline is quickly approaching – don’t delay! The deadline to avoid the late enrollment fee is 11:59 PM, Sunday, July 1st! A third notice to families who have not yet enrolled was emailed earlier this week. If you have any questions, please email email@example.com.
