AERIES PARENT PORTAL
Online First Day Packet | Middle School Grades/Assignments | Streamlined Communication

The Moreland School District has streamlined their parent communication and student information system to create a more user-friendly experience for families and staff members. The Aeries Parent/Student Portal will now be the “one-stop shop” for online registration, middle school grades/assignments, and communication for students, parents, teachers, schools and the District.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is Aeries Parent Portal?  
The Aeries Parent Portal allows parents to view information that the District has on file for their student(s), such as emergency contact information, attendance, annual district documents traditionally available in the 1st Day Packet, and optional documents regarding food services, transportation, student accident insurance and more.  Parents of middle school students can view their student's schedule, assignments and grades.  Aeries Communication tools are also available through the Aeries Parent Portal, allowing parents to select how they would like to receive school and district notifications, select language preferences, and the ability to Direct Message Moreland staff members.  
 
How Do I Sign Up for Aeries Parent Portal?
On August 1, 2018, Aeries Parent Portal sent an automatic email to all current families with an email account on file.  This email provides instructions for parents to sign-up with Parent Portal (be sure to double check your spam folder if the email is not in your inbox).  If you did not receive an email to join the Parent Portal, please stop by or call your student's school office to confirm your email address on file.  The Aeries Parent Portal will automatically send out an invitation email to the corrected/updated email address.
 

How do I enter, change or update my student/family CONTACT INFORMATION?
Each year, parents/guardians of both new and returning students are required to either register or update information in the Aeries SIS (Student Information System) Parent Portal.

Parents/guardians can access the Aeries Parent Portal by clicking on the link listed on both the home page and in the News & Resources section on www.moreland.org.  In order to ensure the security and accuracy of student/family data, this is the only location in Aeries where changes to contact information can be made.

I have more than one child that attends different schools in the District; do I have to create multiple accounts?
Parents only need to have one account for their family.  All children can be linked to the same parent account.

Do parents need to create an account every year?
No.  This is a one-time process.  If you have another child that enters the District (for example a Kindergarten student), you will be able to add them to your existing account.  Please note though - you will need to complete the Data Confirmation process for your account at the beginning of each school year.
