In compliance with the Board of Education’s goal to go paperless, effective July 1, 2011, the Putnam Valley School District will no longer be communicating with parents and students via paper.  The District will no longer do a “Summer Mailing”, but will, instead, have all information either on the District’s website or in each student’s individual PowerSchool records.  All parents and guardians will have access to their child’s PowerSchool records through a unique and individual User Name and Password issued by the District.  Listed below, is a guide to finding the information you need.

WEBSITE

Each school has a page on the website. Under the “Parent Resources” dropdown menu will be a link for each grade in that school. There will be information specific to that grade and its needs.
