Homeroom Assignments

Homeroom assignments will be available on PlusPortals this week once updates for the 2021-2022 academic year have been completed.

PlusPortals

PlusPortals is used to communicate all information about students and school. It will provide access to the school calendar, student progress (grades 3-8), and access to forms and handbooks.

All new families will receive an invitation email from Plus Portals with instructions to create an account and password this week. Returning families can access PlusPortals with your existing accounts and passwords.

Lunch Accounts

We are happy to announce that Miami Prime Catering will now be onsite to provide their catering service to our students and staff. The information that you will need to set up an account is in the flyers below. Please note that this service is between the parents and the catering company. Any questions or concerns must be addressed directly with Miami Prime Catering.

Menus may be found on the Miami Prime Catering website. Since PK3 and PK4 students have lunch in their classrooms, their meals must be pre-ordered and prepaid in advance.

ONLY CREATE AN ACCOUNT IF YOU DID NOT HAVE ONE LAST YEAR. You will need the student's unique id number with an "OL" in front of it to create your child's lunch account. The student ID number will be emailed to each parent. You may also access it on PlusPortals under School, then select demographics, unique id.
