September 11th Public Holiday
As you will be aware September 11th is Polling Day and as a result is a Public Holiday. The School will be closed on this day.
As mentioned last week. All parents should by now have received log in details of the school's ManageBac site. Returning parents have the same log in as last year.
For the first time this week I have also sent out my Email about this blog via ManageBac.
All parents in our system should have received this. If you did not it would indicate that:
1. The email we have for you on ManageBac is incorrect.
2. The emails are going into your Junk Mail.
You can log in to ManageBac via the link to the school's website.
It is very important that you ensure that the contact information we hold for you on Managebac is up to date as this is where we look in order to make contact with you.
- Click on the profile tab and check that the contact information the school holds about you is correct and make any changes or additions as required.
- Check that all of your children are linked to your profile section
- Please drop an email to ES Office if you have made a change so that we can double check we hold the correct information for you on all systems.
Mr Gallagher has created this video to help you use ManageBac https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VgOr4z9GiRk
If you have had any difficulty logging in or have not received your log in details please email: firstname.lastname@example.org
