School Portal Allows Parents to View Attendance, Grades
APS began providing an on-line opportunity for you to partner with your student’s teachers and school staff in promoting your student’s academic achievement. Via the web-based Parent Portal tool, you will be able to see your student’s demographic and contact information along with attendance, grades, and schedule information.

News From Nutrition Services: PayPams Meal Payment System
Nutrition Services has a new on-line and/or phone meal and ala carte payment system. The name of the system is Pams Lunchroom and it is provided through our current point of sale company, PCS Revenue Control Systems, Inc.
Pams Lunchroom will enable you to check account balances and make payments online or by phone. We want to make obtaining a meal or ala carte items as easy as possible for our students. If Pams Lunchroom is used, your student will not have to pay for meals in the morning and the lines will be faster at lunch time if students don’t have to pay as they go through to get their meal. When you register or anytime thereafter, you can set up e-mail notification when your student’s balance falls below a certain dollar value. Also, automatic payments can be scheduled.
What is the best news about this new payment system? It is absolutely free to our parents. Nutrition Services will be paying the service charge so you only pay for the meals and ala carte items. Also, the fifty cent discount still applies when you purchase meals in groups of ten days.
Please read the following information if you and your students are ready for the security and convenience of online or phone payments. One less hassle as your students rush out the door for school.
