Parent Communication TOOLs
South Windsor Public Schools uses a variety of communication tools to connect with parents and students. We strive to make our communication process as efficient and easy as possible, for everyone involved.
Access to PowerSchool, Student Information Updates and SchoolMessenger are all available through Parent Portal. Details regarding these programs are viewable here.
Parent Portal is a web-based communication tool which provides parents/guardians with secure access to student information. Through Parent Portal, you can view student grades and attendance, receive daily announcements and school bulletins, and send emails directly to teachers through embedded email links. Parents who have multiple children enrolled in our schools can view all student accounts through a single log-on. Parent Portal is accessible online or through your mobile device. If you have not yet created your Parent Portal account, contact your child’s school to obtain a Student Access ID and Password.

PowerSchool's Parent Portal is accessible online or through your mobile device. More information on how to download a mobile app to your smartphone is available here.
SchoolMessenger is another communication system used by South Windsor Public Schools. We use SchoolMessenger to notify you by phone, email and/or text about important and timely information such as school closings, delays and early dismissals. School principals may also send communications to keep you apprised of important information or events pertaining to your child’s school.
The person listed as the Primary Contact (Contact #1) in the student record will automatically be enrolled in SchoolMessenger and receive communications through the email and phone number provided. However, we urge parents to customize their SchoolMessenger account so that information is directed in a way that reaches you quickly and efficiently. You can customize your SchoolMessenger preferences through Parent Portal to include additional phone numbers, emails or select text notifications.
The SchoolMessenger link is available on the Parent Portal page, on the bottom of the left hand vertical navigation bar.
