The Weston Weekly August 18, 2023

School Dismissal Manager: Our goal is to begin using School Dismissal Manager by Wednesday of next week! I will send another ParentSquare message with additional information when it is going live. Thank you for your patience.

iPADS: Student access to IPADs will be limited from 7:00 PM-6:00 AM. Weston students will not have internet connectivity during this time frame. Thank you for charging the iPAD each night and sending your child and their device ready for learning each day.

Breakfast and Lunch Payment: Our school corporation does charge students for breakfasts and lunches. If you are in need of assistance, you can access the free & reduced application here. All applications may be completed online. If your child(ren) received either free or reduced lunch last year, you must reapply for this year, making sure that all children in the household are listed. Click here for the free & reduced application here.

ParentSquare: G-C will be using ParentSquare for all communication. They will no longer use Seesaw or Class Dojo for parent communication. Those platforms will only be used for academic purposes. Please download the app so you can receive messages from your teacher, myself, and the corporation. You can access ParentSquare on the left sidebar of PowerSchool as well.

Visitors/Volunteers: Please make sure you have a valid background check on file. You can access the link here. You will not be permitted to volunteer without one on file. We appreciate your compliance with this and helping us keep our students and staff safe.

School Dismissal Manager ~ Weston Elementary School uses a dismissal managing software called School Dismissal Manager (www.schooldismissalmanager.com) for all transportation arrangements and changes. Parents are able to manage where and when students go after school securely online. It is our hope that this online (or smartphone) process will make things easier for you when you have changes or recurring arrangements! You will receive a welcome email with your login credentials in the next few weeks, so please be on the lookout for this. I will also send out an email once the logins are sent to you as a reminder. For those of you who used this system last year, ALL parents will receive a new welcome letter and new login credentials.

EZ School Pay ~ Lunch Money - Greenfield-Central is once again using www.ezschoolpay.com (there is a small fee and you will need your child’s student number found on Powerschool). https://www.ezschoolpay.com/Login.aspx

School Lunch & Breakfast Fees ~ The school meals program is funded by the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA). Since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, school corporations across the country have been operating with the use of a federal waiver that allowed them to feed every child for free through the end of this school year. The use of this waiver will not be available this school year and corporations will return to the traditional eligibility requirements for free, reduced and paid meals. This means that for School Year 2023-2024, our school corporation will be charging students for breakfasts and lunches. Free & Reduced Application for Families

EZ School Pay ~ Lunch Accounts - Greenfield-Central is once again using www.ezschoolpay.com to put lunch money in your child’s lunch account (there is a small fee and you will need your child’s student number found on Powerschool). Lunch money may also be submitted by check when you come to registration. Please be sure to keep your child’s lunch account in good standing. Additionally, our cafeteria computer system does not have the capabilities to put a “block” on student lunch accounts for purchasing extra lunch items. You will want to make sure your child is on the same page as you when it comes to spending lunch account money. https://www.ezschoolpay.com/Login.aspx


YMCA ~ We do offer YMCA after school care. Please visit the link below to register your student and read more information regarding the program.
