If you have more than one child in Stratford Public Schools, you can include other children on the same Parent Portal account by linking to the other student accounts on the bottom of the “Create Parent Account” page.
If any parent has yet to sign up for the Portal --- which provides 24-hour up-to-date information on grades and attendance --- please stop by or call the main office 203-385-4250 for details regarding the secure password for your child's account.
