Important Information for ALL Mentor Schools Families

July 2018

 

Dear Parents and Guardians:


As a district, we are continuing to use technology to streamline the amount of paperwork that has to be filled out by parents each year.  This year we continue to make great strides towards that goal by using the Infinite Campus Parent Portal to complete an Annual Update. Through the Annual Update, parents and guardians will be able to enter Emergency Medical Authorization, update emergency contacts, and access/view the ESEA document and Forms from the Nurse.  The Parent Portal can also be accessed to make Fee Payments and complete the Free and Reduced Lunch Application.  


It is REQUIRED that parents or guardians complete the Annual Update by Friday, September 14th. If not completed, students will be withheld from field trips. The Parent Portal can be accessed through the Mentor Schools website or by using this link: (https://campus.mentorschools.org/campus/portal/Mentor.jsp).  


If you do not have internet access, computers/devices will be available at our schools, the Service Building, and our Board Office.  Internet access is also available at the Mentor Public Library.

 

After logging into the Parent Portal, click on Annual Update in the lower left corner to view and update your Household and emergency contact information.  This should only take a few minutes for each student. Links to the ESEA document and Forms from the Nurse are available to view or print within the Update.  The documents can also be accessed through our Mentor Schools website.
