New Family Parent Portal Login Information

Individual parent usernames and passwords were emailed to all parents on Friday, August 19. This enables you to login to the Parent Portal on the website and access the online Family Directory. If you did not receive this email, kindly let us know at webmaster@francisparker.org. If you're new to the website, or you'd like a brief refresher, you can watch this short video.


New Parent Dinner

This dinner is for all new, first-time Parker parents. Plan to join us for an enjoyable evening where you can get to know your fellow new Parker parents, and hear from the Head of School. Parents only, please. Tuesday, September 13, 6:00pm, Gooding Family Courtyard, Mission Hills campus (4201 Randolph Street, San Diego 92103).


DynaCal School Calendar

Part of the Back to School process is getting your family calendar synched with the School's calendar.

With our DynaCal online calendar, you can see the entire school year and sign up for My DynaCal to receive e-mail and text message alerts when event times or locations change, or if an event is postponed or cancelled.

To get to My DynaCal, look for the "My DynaCal" link in the left-hand menu, and follow the prompts to either set up your account or edit your account.

If you signed up for My DynaCal last year, you'll want to update your settings for the new school year. For example, if your child was a 7th grader last year, you'll want to change your settings to receive 8th grade information this year.

Tdap Shots for Start of School Grades 7 - 12

New State Law in Effect
Students entering grades 7 - 12 in fall 2011 are required by State law to have proof of a Tdap booster shot (Pertussis--Whooping Cough--immunization) before starting school in September. (NOTE: For Upper School fall athletes, that record must be submitted before they may begin fall sports practices in August). Families of students going in to grades 7 and 8 may submit the immunization record to Mrs. Debbie Peterson in the Middle School office; grade 9 - 12 should submit the record to Ms. Laura Southworth in the Upper School office. To date, we have only received forms for about 25% of students.

We are offering a Tdap clinic at Parker for Parker students in grades 7-12 on Thursday, September 1, 2011 on the Linda Vista campus from noon - 4:00pm.

If you plan to attend, please register here.

Download the form you'll need to complete and bring with you to the clinic.

Download more information about the vaccine.
