FAQs for Parents
​​​​​​​​​​​
Here​ are some frequently asked questions from parents; if you have any other specific questions or concerns, please feel free to contact me at MacArthur's Main Office 516.434.7225.


ParentPortal Questions 

Where can I access the log in page for ParentPortal? Here --> http://levittownschools.com/parentportal/​​

What does "--" mean for an assignment grade? The dashes mean the assignment is either pending or has not been entered yet. It has no affect on your child's average until a score is entered.

Why is my child's grade marked a zero, when they were excused absent from school? Without putting a zero in as a placeholder, your child might not be aware they owe an assignment. Typically, upon seeing the zero (and their average drop), students make up the work much faster.

If you have any questions about grades after checking ParentPortal and speaking to your child, please email me at K2Schaefer@LevittownSchools.com or please call the MacArthur Main Office at 516.434.7225.
