FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
__________ 2016-17 __________
Q. How do I update my information for the PTO directory?
A. This year, for the first time, the PTO will be offering members access to an online directory in addition to the standard paper directory. PTO members may make changes to their online directory listing at any time, however, only changes made prior to July 30th will be reflected in the paper directory.
Also, please note that all student and family information in the directory is based on official school records. When updating your directory listing, please remember to also update your child’s school record on Infinite Campus by contacting the main office at your child’s school or logging in to your Infinite Campus account.
Q. How do I join or renew my PTO membership?
A. All parents with children in the Weston Public Schools should have received an email containing instructions and links to join or renew their membership for 2016-17 as well as sign up for volunteer opportunities. If you did not receive this email, please contact Nancy Varela or Jen Betty.
You may also join or renew your membership by clicking here.
Q. How do I sign up to volunteer in my child’s classroom or school?
A. In conjunction with our new online directory, we have updated our volunteer sign up process for 2016-17. All parents with children in the Weston Public Schools should have received an email containing instructions and links to join or renew their membership for 2016-17 as well as sign up for volunteer opportunities. If you did not receive this email, please contact Nancy Varela or Jen Betty.
You may also sign up to volunteer by clicking here. Please note that if you are interested in serving as a Room Parent, you must be a current PTO member and sign up by July 30th.
Q. Given the transition to the new online directory, will I still receive a hard copy of the PTO Directory?
A. As part of our move to an online directory, and in an effort to be more “green”, we will be printing a reduced number of paper directories for 2016-17, which will be available to members while supplies last. All members who join or renew by July 30th will be guaranteed to receive a paper copy. Members will also be able to print grade and class lists from the online directory.
Q. How do I delete an electronic calendar download subscription from my home computer or iPhone if I no longer need it or if my child is now attending a new school in the district?
A. There is a separate subscription for each school and department, and the subscriptions that someone chose last year may not be the same as the ones they'll want this year. There is a way to add or delete a subscription on your home computer or iPhone. Open your calendar on your home computer or iPhone. In the drop down menu there should be an item Calendars. Click on Calendars, then Subscriptions. Delete the calendars you don't want. To add a new calendar, you can go here and follow the instructions for adding new calendars.
Please note, you cannot remove specific events from a subscription (it's all or nothing). For example, once you subscribe to Middle School, you will have all M.S. activities in your calendar. Once you remove a subscription (such as remove Field) you will remove every event related to Field School past, present and future. Please note, M.S. and H.S. do occasionally post the same events, so if someone subscribes to both, they may have duplicate events in their calendar. There's nothing we can do about this. We hope you will enjoy your electronic calendar downloads this year, and best of luck!
