A letter has been mailed home to welcome you to the PowerSchool Parent Portal!

Studies have shown that parental engagement in a child’s education is the single most important factor in student achievement.  As part of Stamford Public Schools continued effort to improve communication and engagement with our families, we are happy to let you know that we are launching our PowerSchool Parent Portal for all middle school and high school parents beginning on November 20, 2014.

A detailed information sheet enclosed that you should keep for future reference.


¡Bienvenido(a) a PowerSchool Parent Portal (Portal de Padres de PowerSchool)! Los estudios han mostrado que la participación de los padres en la educación de un niño(a) es el factor más importante de todos en el éxito estudiantil. Como parte del continuo esfuerzo de las Escuelas Públicas de Stamford de mejorar la comunicación y la participación de nuestras familias, nos complace dejarles saber que estamos lanzando nuestro Portal de Padres de PowerSchool para todos los padres de las escuelas (inter)medias y las escuelas secundarias (escuelas superiores) a partir del 20 de noviembre de 2014. 

Este portal le proporcionará acceso seguro a información sobre las calificaciones y los récords de asistencia de su niño(a)(s) de escuela (inter)media y / o escuela secundaria (escuela superior) por medio de una sola cuenta.  Para crear su cuenta, va a necesitar una computadora con acceso al Internet.  Si no tiene acceso a una computadora, puede visitar la biblioteca pública que le quede más cercana.  Hay también, adjunta, una hoja informativa detallada que debe guardar para su uso como referencia en el futuro.

There are approximately 250 scholarships on Naviance that are available to Seniors who are planning to go to college. Each scholarship has different application criteria and is looking for different things in student applicants. Some scholarships are looking for students with strong academic achievement, some are for athletes, some are for students who are planning to major in a particular area of study or pursue a particular career path, and others are for students with strong community service or a special interest. The goal of the Westhill Scholarship Program is to notify and inform students about specific scholarships that they are eligible for, and to provide guidance through the application process. 

In order to become part of the program you must submit the application package.

Policy Reminders

After a student returns from any absence they are to report to Mr. Pereira's office (located in the 100s, across from Room 103) between 7:00 and 7:20am.
Mr. Pereira will review their absence documentation (doctor’s note, etc.) and issue them a slip to present - with their note - to their teachers. Students must have each teacher sign the slip on the appropriate line, in order to document the rationale behind the absence. At the end of the day, the student is responsible for returning the slip (with all signatures) and documentation to a mailbox in the main office designated for this purpose.
NOTE: Absence documentation should come in the form of a note (parental, doctor, court summons - as examples) and within 2 school days (48 hours) of the student's return to school. Phone calls, while appreciated, will not count towards documentation. If you had emailed your child's teachers and/or guidance counselor please print out the email and have your child bring that to Mr. Pereira.
Early Dismissal: 

If there is a need for your child to leave school early, please send in a note (including a morning telephone number to confirm dismissal) with your child. They will be issued a yellow dismissal pass from class and you can meet your child in the office. Students should report to the main office before the warning bell for Block 1 to get the dismissal approved. We are hoping to greatly decrease the classroom interruptions that occur when we do not follow this procedure.
