    Low cost Internet access and low cost computer program   2020, March

    If your child receives free school lunches you may qualify for Comcast's Internet Essentials program. This program includes $9.95 a month Internet, an option for a laptop at $149, and free training.
    More details available at

    As our country continues to manage the COVID-19 emergency, Comcast is taking immediate steps to help connect low-income families to the Internet at home. New Internet Essentials customers will receive two free months of Internet service, which is available to all qualified low-income households for $9.95/month plus tax. Apply by April 30, 2020.

    Additionally, for all new and existing Internet Essentials customers, the speed of the program's Internet service has increased to 25 Mbps downstream and 3 Mbps upstream. That increase will go into effect automatically for no additional fee and it will become the new base speed for the program going forward. "During this extraordinary time, it is vital that as many Americans as possible stay connected to the internet – for education, work, and personal health reasons,” Dave Watson, Comcast Cable Chief Executive Officer.

    Parent Forgot Parent Portal Username or Password   2019, September

    It is not abnormal for parents to report a lost or forgotten Parent Portal username or password to teachers at conferences. Here’s some info that may be helpful:

    I send parents an AccessID/Password when a Parent Portal permission form is completed. However, this is not the same as a Parent Portal username and password. The AccessID/Password simply allows the parent to make an account of their own attached to a specific student. PowerSchool requires parents to make up their own username and password. I can not see the password that parents make up.

    When parents forget their username and/or password the system can email it back to them. All they need to do is go to
    and click the FORGOT USERNAME OR PASSWORD link.

    They will be presented with two tabs: Forgot Password? and Forgot Username? They can use both if needed.

    Note that the system will only email the username/password that the parent has made up to the email address that is on file for Parent Portal. If the parent has multiple email accounts they need to check the one that they used when they signed up for Parent Portal.

    Parent Portal Passwords   2019, September

    Never had a parent portal password and need one? Find the permission form and other info here.
    Had a parent portal account, got it setup, and can't remember your login? Have your username and password sent back to the email address you used when signing up by clicking FORGOT USERNAME OR PASSWORD here.
    Note: Mr. Jobe can not lookup the password you have created.
