The Peninsula School District (PSD) uses PowerSchool, a secure web-based system for our Parent Portal and student information system. We recently upgraded the way we store contact information in PowerSchool in order to provide more accurate information and faster communication in case of an emergency.
As we complete the upgrade process, we need all parents and legal guardians to update their contact information for each student.
Students from households that meet federal income guidelines are eligible for free or reduced-price lunches. Complete the Free and Reduced Application returning it to your child’s school main office or to the Nutrition Services Office
