Parent Portal and FamilyID
Please log on to Parent Portal to update your emergency contact information as this will provide you access to student schedules which will be released on August 16th.  Please be sure to update/verify your emergency contact information before this date to access schedules.

You will also need to access FamilyID.com and accept all of the agreements and give permission for your student(s) to use their google account. 

Please be advised that if your child owes a missing book, does not have the required immunizations, or completed FamilyID, your Parent Portal account will be locked until this matter is resolved.

If you do not go on to FamilyID.com and accept all of the agreements, your child's google account will be locked on the first day of school and will not be unlocked until all of the agreements are accepted.

Community News
On September 11th in 2001, our lives and the world we knew changed forever.  What started as a beautiful, autumn day, turned out to be one of the darkest days in American history.  Brave men and women gave their lives that day for us and our country.  Today, many still live with the effects of that day; that is why we can never forget.

A ceremony in remembrance, hosted by The Croton Falls Fire District, will take place at The North Salem Fire Station, 301 Titicus Road, North Salem, New York, on Wednesday, September 11th at 6:30 PM.  We hope you can join us on this day of remembrance.  For additional information, please contact Patricia Galluccio at 914-669-5544 or email her at patgalluccio@crotonfallsfire.com
