District Announcements
Sapphire Announcement
Important news!

The Dunmore School District has a new Student Information System (SIS) called Sapphire.  Sapphire unites an easy to use SIS with a streamlined Student and Parent Portal to view grades, and a notification system that employs not only voice messaging but also text and email capabilities.
Sapphire replaces the former CSIU parent portal, and requires all parents to apply for a new account. 

Click the Sapphire link HERE, or under the Parents/Students tab on the district’s website.  Choose the Community Portal.  Then the Community Portal Application link.
 
 
 
Once the Dunmore School District approves your portal account, you will need to complete what is known in the system as your Notification Workflow.  Here you will prioritize how you would like to receive notifications from the Dunmore School District.  For example, you can decide to first receive a text message on your cell phone, followed by an email, and finally a voice message on your home phone.  This is just one workflow example.  
 
 

So get your Sapphire Community Portal account today to stay connected.
