If you can't access the Aeries portal and you want to know your child's class/teacher assignment, you can login to the website and see your child's teacher as well. Click here for a list of all teachers by grade and their room numbers.


If you pre-ordered your child(ren)'s school supplies last May through EduKit, you do not need to purchase any additional supplies. Your child's school supplies will be delivered to your child's assigned classroom by PTA volunteers and will be available on the first day of school. If you have not yet purchased your school supplies, click here for a list of required supplies by grade. Though it is too late to order from EPI, you can purchase most items at office supply stores such as Office Depot or Staples, or a general retailer like Target.




Every year you are required to fill out a number of school and District forms such as the Notice of Parent/Guardian Rights and Emergency Contact Information Form. This year the entire form process will be handled online through the District's Aeries Online Parent Portal. As a reminder, to access your Aeries account, please go to:
