Links for Students/Parents
Pewamo-Westphalia Community Schools will begin utilizing a new website for the 2022-2023 school year. SchoolPay is a document and payment solution that will be a one-stop shop for school registration, technology paperwork, and athletic paperwork. We hope to add to these options as time goes on.
Information on Creating a PowerSchool Parent Portal
To set up an account to view your child's grades and attendance through our Student Information System, PowerSchool, you will need your Parent Portal letter. To receive this, you may contact Stacey Johnston at email@example.com. Please be sure to let her know your name, the name(s) and grade(s) of your child/ren, and which building he/she attends. She will email you a copy of the parent information letter, as well as a tutorial video if requested to assist you in setting up your account.
If you have misplaced or forgotten your username or password for the website, please use the link on the website itself to reset them. We cannot see passwords, so are unable to provide you with that information.

Updating Your SchoolMessenger Information
SchoolMessenger is our phone and email notification service. It is used in both emergency (snow days/delays) and non-emergency (informational) contexts.
Parent and guardian contact information goes into SchoolMessenger from PowerSchool, our student information system. Our ability to contact you in case of an emergency is only as good as the information that you provide to us. It is imperative that you do the following:
1. Provide us with legible, updated information on the Student Registration Forms from the school office at the beginning of every school year.
2. Provide us with complete information for each of your children who enrolls in our district, no matter what building they are in or how many of your children we serve.
3. Contact the building secretary as soon as you have an information change, no matter when it occurs during the school year.
Please help us to do the best job we can to keep all of the children in our communities safe by following these instructions. You may contact PW Elementary at 989.593.3488, and PW MS/HS at 989.587.5100. Thank you, and Onward Pirates!
Ways to Keep Your Student Safe Online
Recording from the FBI Sextortion Presentation
The FBI and our local law enforcement partners are seeing a huge increase in the online targeting of our youth. More specifically, our youth are being targeted for extortion based on their online activities. What does that mean for you as the parent/guardian of a student? What can you do as parents/guardians? How can you help keep your child safe? What should you be talking to your children about?
This problem is not merely something we see “nationwide.” These threats are being seen locally, at an alarming rate. We want you, as parents/guardians, to be aware so that you can be part of the solution. An educated and proactive approach can prevent these threats from occurring.
