Secure Online Portal
It is now 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 (2022-2023), you DO NOT need to update the Portal, as your important information was submitted at Registration.
NOTE: We have been made aware that some of the 2nd parent/guardian information in the update portal has been omitted and grayed out. Please complete the rest of the portal and submit. Once the information is submitted, please contact the building secretary to update this information (living with student status, emergency contact, medical contact) in our student database. We apologize for this error and are continuing to work with the vendor to correct it.
It is important that your student’s information in the Secure Online Portal is up to date at the start of every year. Families must update key student information, including emergency medical and contact information, acknowledgement 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 be utilizing a new notification system this year, called SwiftK12! The district has chosen this new notification tool in hopes that the new system will be an improvement in communication delivery to our families.
Be sure your current contact information is updated in the Secure Online Portal. You do not need to “sign up” for alerts. As long as your contact information is updated in your student’s profile you should receive alerts. IMPORTANT – if your student would like to receive text or phone alerts, please ensure their mobile number is in the Secure Online Portal as well.
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.
