WEBSITE QUESTIONS

 

Why do I need to make an account on the Kipling PTO website?

The Kipling PTO website is the only form of communication the PTO has with families. Therefore it is very important that you update and complete the registration before the school year begins. Our weekly PTO Postings are generated from email addresses entered into the website. In addition it serves as a one-stop shopping site for everything the PTO has to offer. You can update your profile, contact information, student information, and directory display preferences at any time. Please update your information as necessary, so the information is always current. Parent 2 information should be added as contact information and display in the school directory, but parent 2’s email address is not used for login for registering the school directory app.

Log in to the secure portion of the website. Once logged in you will see a “For Sale” tab on the top left side. Click to view the items currently available for sale.
