Stay Connected With The District

We know that the community desires to be connected and informed about what's happening across our district and in our schools.

Below are several communication tools we hope you will find helpful as we work together to fulfill the district's mission of providing opportunities for students to become literate, lifelong learners and pursuers of dreams.

District Website
The district website is updated several times each week with information about district and building level activities, programs and announcements.

School Calendar
Up-to-date event information about district and school events can be found on a comprehensive online calendar here. Because you determine the calendar settings, if you have children in multiple schools, you can view events for each building on one calendar.

Mobile App
Get your news and information on-the-go with Port Byron CSD's app for iOS (Apple) and Android devices. Download the app for free from iTunes or Google Play.

Port Byron eNews
Each week, Port Byron Superintendent of Schools Neil O'Brien and the district's team of building principals compose an electronic newsletter for parents and guardians, staff and community members. The newsletter is delivered to subscriber's inboxes and covers a variety of topics related to what's happening inside Port Byron's classrooms - and beyond.

To sign-up for the e-newsletter, please click here.

SchoolMessenger allows the district and its schools to send parents and guardians messages via telephone, email and text to notify them of upcoming school events, emergency situations, closings and delays, etc. Parents and guardians will automatically receive phone calls and emails via SchoolMessenger, but will need to text the word "subscribe" to 68453 to sign-up for text notifications.

The district's parent portal is a password-protected, secure website that offers parents and students access to personalized information about a student's academic program. Student report cards, bus schedules, interim reports and academic schedules are posted. Some teachers also use SchoolTool to post assignments and to communicate with individual students/ families.

Please contact the main office of your child's school for log-in information.
