All parents are required to have an Aeries Portal Account. Please find the attached instructions to create your account.

By creating a Portal Account, you have the ability to change your personal information as well as update emergency contacts for your child. Additionally, once you have created your account, you will be able to find out your child’s teacher at the beginning of each new school year as we no longer post class lists. Once you have created your Portal please log out and log back in, to complete the required Student Data Confirmation. This includes updating contact information as well as emergency contact information for your student. Please complete each step listed on the left side of the screen.

If you have any questions, or have any issues with creating your account, please do not hesitate to call McManus School office at 891-3128.
