Secure Online Portal
It is time to complete your student’s annual update of the Secure Online Portal. If you are a brand-new student to Little Miami this school year (2023-2024), you DO NOT need to update the Portal, as your essential information was submitted at Registration.
What You Can Do Now:
1. Complete what you can complete within the Portal.
2. Contact your student’s building secretary with necessary updates for contact information changes, emergency contacts, living with student status, authorized to pick up status, etc.
Your student’s information in the Secure Online Portal must be updated at the start of every year. Families must update critical student information, including emergency medical and contact information, acknowledgment of the district policies and handbooks, and the computer/internet acceptable use policy.
How Will I Get Alerts/Closure Information from LM?
Little Miami will again utilize the notification system, SwiftK12!
Be sure your current contact information is updated in the Secure Online Portal. You do not need to “sign up” for alerts. You should receive alerts if your contact information is updated in your student’s profile. IMPORTANT – if your student wants to receive text or phone alerts, please ensure their mobile number is also in the Secure Online Portal.
Prepare for Potential Bus Delays
If your student is riding the bus this school year, please be prepared for possible bus delays during the first few days/week of school. Delays may happen as students adjust to bus riding and drivers streamline their routes.
We'd like your patience as our Transportation Staff works to get everyone home safely. Thank you!

Despite significant student enrollment growth over the last ten years, LM has strategically stretched out the funds generated by the passage of the 2011 Emergency Levy for more than ten years. This funding represents one-fifth of LM’s total operating budget and is a vital piece of the district’s financial health. These funds were renewed in November 2020.
However, with continued enrollment growth and increased demand for student supports, a request for new funds will need to be made of the community in the near future.

Imagination Library - ENROLL TODAY
DID YOU KNOW? By the age of three, a child’s brain is already 80% developed, and, by the time a child enters kindergarten, they must already know thousands of words in order to succeed in the classroom. Reading aloud to a child and giving them access to books is the best way to ensure they are prepared to enter kindergarten.
The Ohio Governor’s Imagination Library wants to start a new chapter in early childhood literacy throughout Ohio by providing families with books. With the goal of preparing students entering Kindergarten for success in the classroom, the Imagination Library program will send a customized book to your child each month from birth until age five. Sign up is easy and FREE! Give your Panther the gift of reading & enroll today.
