Aspen Portal for Parents and Students

Effective with the 2014-2015 school year, Aspen has replaced Edline as the on-line system for parents and students to access information about grades, assignments, attendance, etc. as well as communication from Pinkerton Academy.

You may log into Aspen by clicking here or referring to the upper right-hand corner of this web page.

Who Do I See? Where Do I Go?

At Pinkerton Academy, it may not always be obvious Where a parent or student should go to seek answers and information. Also, a parent or student may not know specifically Who to contact for answers and information in any given area.

To help with communication, Pinkerton Academy has created an illustrated chart to show parents and students how they may address various types of issues related to their student and the school.

Please click here to access the chart. Attendance issue? Curriculum issue? Discipline issue? Athletic issue? Something Else? There are 10 categories of issues on the illustrated chart.

  • Internet Safety Tips

    Pinkerton Academy provides these Internet Safety Tips from Special Investigator Jennifer Frank of the Plymouth State University Police Department. Officer Frank is a recognized expert in Internet safety; she regularly speaks to students, civic groups and the general public about "The Many Faces of Facebook."

    Pinkerton encourages students to practice Internet safety when on line, especially in social media. Pinkerton also encourages parents and older siblings to help young people be safe when on line. The recommendations of Officer Frank can help a great deal.
