  • Pay for school lunch online

    Did you know you could pay for your student's lunch online? You may use your MasterCard, Visa or Discover credit or debit card to make electronic payments onto your student's account. The first step is to set up your user account with PowerSchool (use the link in quick links or one posted below), our student database system. Required access information was provided to you over the summer.

    Once you have established a PowerSchool account that is linked to your student's information, you will be able to access RevTrak, our merchant banking provider. This is our "banking" page. You may, of course, still pay by check or with cash but we hope this saves you valuable time.

    Should you have any additional questions, please call our schools' offices.

2017 Smarter Balanced Assessment

The Connecticut Department of Education (CSDE) revised their Smarter Balanced Assessment Reports. The report will now present two years of scores, comparing them side by side. CSDE made this change to emphasize a criterion-referenced interpretation for both achievement (i.e., how did my child perform relative to the achievement expectations) and growth (i.e., how did my child’s performance change from one year to the next).  As in past years, the report retains the normative data (i.e., district and school averages) in order to provide parents with an additional reference.

To assist parents with the interpretation of this Smarter Balanced report, the CSDE has created brief videos that are available in both English and Spanish. Those have been posted for your convenience.
