Get connected for distance learning

Posted Date: 4/29/2020

This is the time to make sure you can log into PUSD's student and parent portals and to update your email.  


As we prepare to transition to distance learning, it is imperative that teachers and administrative staff are able to connect with families.
Please take a moment to log into both the parent and student Synergy portals and make sure you have a correct email address listed.  Students - do not list your Student PowayUSD email as it cannot receive incoming mails.  Gmail is good option if you currently do not have an email account.
Also, if you haven't already, please sign up to receive MyConnect announcements.
Here is how to update your email:
Parents:  log in to your Parent Synergy portal > click on "My Account” > click on “Emails” > type in your new/updated email > click "Done" 
Students:  from MyConnect login > click "settings” > click "+Email Address” > in the pop up box, type in your new email address (if you already have one listed but it is incorrect, you can change it here as well)
