Dear Parent / Guardian,
With the start of a new school year there are always exciting changes. Your child(ren) will be meeting new teachers, making new friends and – most importantly – learning new things!
In addition to these exciting new experiences, there are some changes happening behind the scenes at Hampton School District. This year we are using Alma, a new software system that will help us better manage school, classroom and student information.
Alma, is a secure, easy-to-use online system that brings important school information and tools together in one place. We expect this to save school leaders and teachers time, and make it easier to get a complete view of what’s happening with each student’s learning.
In addition to educator tools, Alma offers a parent and student portal to help families stay informed and on track with student learning.
The portal provides access to:
- School Calendar
- Staff Directory
- Attendance History
- Report Cards
You can also email teachers and school staff through Alma, so you never have to search for their contact information. If you have more than one child enrolled at our school, you will be able to access all of their information with a single login.
You will soon receive an email from Alma with information about how to set up your account and log into the portal. Please be sure to check your Spam / Junk folder. If you have not received this email by Monday, August 22nd please contact the Technology office at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please Note: In order to find out who your child’s teacher is you will need to create a password and login to your new Alma portal account.
You can also find frequently asked questions about Alma here.
Thank you for your patience as we work through this transition to our new student information system. As soon as it is ready to go we will notify you. We had hoped to have everything up and running by Friday, August 12. Unfortunately, we are slightly detained.
We anticipate that early next week you should be able to log in to receive placement information on your student. Notification will be sent as soon as the system is ready.
