How to Sign Up as a Parent:
Obtain the unique 6-digit Parent Code from your child’s account (this is not the same as your child’s Group Codes).
The Parent Code is attached to your child’s account. You can get this the following ways:
Your child’s Edmodo Homepage: the Parent Code is located on the bottom of the left side panel.
After you have the parent code, go to edmodo.com (currently, you cannot create your Account on the mobile or iPad Edmodo app).
Click “I’m a Parent” and fill in the necessary information and Parent Code.
Note: Each child has a different Parent Code. You do not have to share a Parent Account with another parent, relative, or guardian. Multiple Parent Accounts can be set up for one student. Simply use the same Parent Code found on the student’s account to create a second Parent Account (must have a different email address).
Hi Parents, as you know we have switched over to EDMODO. Below is the role you will play with staying informed.
You may also sign up for a parent account on Edmodo, which connects to your child’s account. This is a great way to keep informed of classroom content and activities, as well as school events. To sign up for a parent account, you will need your child’s unique parent code, which can be found in your child’s account (on the bottom left of their home page). Parent accounts are not required, but we recommend signing up for one to stay engaged with your child’s learning experience. Parents cannot post or interact with any other child or see the information for any other child other than their own. For more information about how to sign up for a parent account, please visit https://support.edmodo.com/home#forums/20888720-how-to-sign-up-as-a-parent .
For further questions please email me.

When you pick up your child you will be required to sign them out. Please be here by 4:15. Thank.
