NEW TO PEIRCE
Welcome to Peirce! We created this guide to help you get started as a new member of the Peirce community.
1. Sign up for PARENT PORTAL
This is critical because we need your help at home in making sure our students maintain good academic standing. It takes less than five minutes to sign up and you can set up automatic alerts that notify you when your child's grades drop below a pre-determined grade. To sign up, you will need your child's CPS ID# and a Portal PIN#. Contact Lynn or Sally in the main office for K-5th grade and Talyia Riemer (email@example.com) for 6th-8th. The Parent Portal Orientation Guide will walk you through this process step-by-step, so be sure to review it.
