I'M GETTING A MESSAGE ABOUT AN "ACCOUNT SECURITY EMAIL."

WHY IS THIS HAPPENING AND WHAT DO I NEED TO DO?

  • The Account Security Email is the email address that will be used whenever you click "Forgot my password." In most cases, this should be the same email address at which you receive other school-related communication. You will need to enter it twice for verification. Your "Campus Password" is the password you set up for yourself when you created your Infinite Campus Parent Portal account or your most recent password.


ARE THERE MOBILE APPS?

  • Yes, there are free apps for both Android and Apple iOS
  • You must set up your Campus Portal account BEFORE you can use the Mobile App
  • Search the App Store for the "Campus Parent" or "Campus Student" app and download.
  • District Name = Lemon Grove School District

Maintaining good grades in middle school during a pandemic can be challenging. Taking the time to recognize our students for their hard work and dedication this quarter is an important part of the Wolfpack Experience!


So on Friday, we took the time to honor all our 7th Grade students who had at least a 3.0 GPA and no "N's" or "U's" for citizenship.


Sending a big THANKS to Ms. Carr & ASB for hosting the event, Ms. Chavez for being our awesome DJ, Coach Buchhauser for your willingness to always check in with our students and lend a helping hand, and our office staff, admin staff, and CPA's who helped make this event a success!


We appreciate the opportunity to celebrate with all our scholars and we look forward to hosting the same event for our 8th graders this Friday!


Keep up the great work LGAM!

Due to a number of inquiries from parents regarding the vaccination mandate and school enrollment, we are providing the necessary steps that must be taken to enroll into Virtual Academy.

Enrollment Into Virtual Academy

Families who wish to enroll into Virtual Academy and are already enrolled in an LGSD school will need to complete an Intra District Transfer Request


Families who do not reside within LGSD boundaries and wish to enroll into Virtual Academy will need to first complete an Inter District Transfer Request. Upon approval of the inter district transfer request, families then need to complete online enrollment for their student.


Online enrollment directions will ask to choose LGAE as the school if Virtual Academy is wanted. There will be a choice for on campus or virtual. Virtual needs to be identified to enroll into Virtual Academy.


Send all transfer requests to transfers@lemongrovesd.net


If there is a medical reason as to why a family would like to enroll into Virtual Academy, completion of the Medical Questionnaire is needed.


**Approval of requests will be dependent on the child’s grade level and space within the program.
