Las Palmas ElemenTary is REady!  Are You?

After over a year of full and partial school campus closures, we are excited to invite all of our students and families back to Las Palmas Elementary.  That's right, in case you missed it, Noralto and Harmon Johnson School have merged to become one complete Preschool to 6th Grade Elementary School. Although each side of our campus will continue to serve the same students as before (Preschool to 2nd Grade at our West Campus and 3rd to 6th Grade at our East Campus), we now operate under one set of expectations, one set of procedures, and provide one streamlined process for all of our students and families.  We are all Las Palmas...We are all Alebrijes!

BEFORE THE FIRST DAY:

NEW TO THE LAS PALMAS COMMUNITY

If you are new to our area...WELCOME!  Before you register your child, we must  make sure that your home is within our school boundary.  To confirm what school you need to register your child at...and to complete our online enrollment for your child at Las Palmas or at their school of residence, please click HERE!

AERIES PARENT PORTAL

The Aeries Parent Portal allows parents to see student grades, attendance, receive district, school, and class messages and communications. This is also where you are able to see your child's new teacher and their room number. Basically, it's the one place to keep up to date on EVERYTHING with your students.
 
WE WILL NOT BE POSTING CLASS LISTS ONLINE OR ON OUR CAMPUS.  The only way to know your child's classroom and teacher...is to look in your Aeries Parent Portal.

If you already registered for the Aeries Parent Portal (website or phone app), YOU MUST UPDATE YOUR CHILD'S DATA ON THE AERIES PORTAL WEBSITE FOR THIS NEW SCHOOL YEAR!  If you are trying to log in on your Aeries phone app, and do not see your child's information for this school year, it is becuase you have not updated their student data.  To do this, you MUST log into the website version of the Parent Portal (not the mobile app) and update the student data FIRST! You will need to do this for ALL of your Twin Rivers students.
If you are new to our district (or your child is transitioning from Preschool to TK or Kindergarten) you will need to register for the Aeries Parent Portal...for all the reasons mentioned above!  You can register on the Aeries Parent Portal website, or by downloading the mobile app.  You will need to have a valid email on file with our office to complete registration for the Parent Portal.
