To email a teacher, you would need to send an email similar to ‘firstnamelastname@spsk12.net’. If a teacher can not be reached, then contact the Guidance counselor for assistance.

To sign up, parents need to click here: Home Access Sign Up to create a Home Access account. If you experience any issues signing up for a parent account, call Mrs. Debra Carr at Forest Glen to give her your email address or for assistance.
