Fall Registration

We hope you have a wonderful summer! Here's everything you need to know to prepare for Fall 2016, starting with our 2016-2017 School Calendar (PDF).

 

Summer Forms to Complete by August 1, 2016 

The following forms were mailed out in May, along with this letter from the Dean of Students (PDF), but you can print them here in case you need another copy:

The following digital forms can be found in our Parent Portal starting July 1. You can log in then to read the online forms and complete them with an electronic signature. Once you’ve logging in, we've customized your experience so you will only see the forms that apply to your child, not all of them, as listed below:

  • Textbook and Instructional Loan PA residents only
  • Yearbook Form (to opt out)
  • Valuables List
  • Student Bank Form for boarders only
  • Public Relations Release Form sign once for all years as a student
  • Sudden Cardiac Arrest Form all students/ parents must sign electronically before sports begin
  • Student Handbook and Acknowledgement
  • Permission Forms
  • Permission Forms translated versions (this includes a PDF that must be printed and mailed in)
  • Sports and Activities Signup  new students only

The Letter from Athletic Director Rob Eichem (PDF) and Sports and Activities Descriptions (PDF) will help inform the above Sports and Activities Sign-Up.

 

How to Log Into the Parent Portal

Please go to the login page.

The email address you gave to the School as part of your contact information will be your log in; your temporary password will be: solebury (all lowercase)

Click submit to go inside the Parent Portal, where you can change your password by clicking the “Change Password” link in the top left module.

Family Access (FAM), also in the top left module, is important to know. It’s where your child’s grades will be logged each trimester and where you can read interim comments from teachers. Here, you can also update your contact information (address, phone number, etc.).

Above FAM, you'll see Summer Forms. That's where you can complete digital several forms (see above) that are required in order for your child to start school on September 8, 2016.
