Do You Know Your Parent Portal Log-in?

In order to access your child's report card, you will need to be able to access the Aspen Parent Portal: https://ma-lexington.myfollett.com/aspen/logon.do

Safety Reminders from our Crossing Guard

Crossing Guard Tricia Jenness continues to staff the challenging Estabrook School entrance. She asked that we pass along these reminders:

  • Use your blinkers to indicate if you wish to turn into the driveway and to show which direction you intend to exit.
  • Do not turn into the driveway until signaled to do so in order to ensure there is space in the pick-up/drop-off lane.
  • Most important: Drive slowly and use caution and patience.
