Back to School

Back to School 2018-19

Welcome back to another great year at Powell! We're excited for the 2018-19 journey ahead.  Please pay attention to the following steps to ensure your student's journey is a successful one:

  • Please complete the Annual Family Check-In (online) for your student before September 1, 2018.  Log on to your Parent Portal account. If you have forgotten your username/password, contact Jill Hecomovich at jhecomovich[at]lps.k12.co[dot]us.  The link to check in is on the bottom left of the home screen.  *Please note that this Check-In can only be accessed through a Parent account and completed by a Parent/Guardian in the student's Primary Household. You will not have access to this link through a Student Portal account or a Parent/Guardian account in the student's Secondary Household.  You will be verifying/updating the following information:  Household Demographics, Emergency Information and Consent and Permissions Information Health Information.
  • Pay your school fees online through RevTrak.  Log on to RevTrak by entering your Parent Portal username and the birthdate of your LPS student.  Fees will be displayed for the 2018-19 school year, along with any unpaid fines/fees from previous school years.  You might notice that a fee has been assessed twice.  If that is the case, your student has the class both 1st and 2nd semester.  Also, please note that a $2.00 convenience fee will be assessed for each transaction/ online payment.  If you have multiple students, you can pay for all of your student’s in LPS at the same time.  *New this year: Yearbook is listed as an OPTIONAL fee only.  If your student wishes to purchase a yearbook please add the optional $45.00 yearbook fee to your cart.  If mailing a check - Print the receipt, fill it in and then send it along with your check to Powell Middle School, Attn: Nancy Lesan, 8000 South Corona Way, Littleton, CO 80122.
  • Pick Up School Supplies (see list at right). 
  • Add money to your student's lunch account through My School Bucks.
  • Get any updated immunization records, authorizations to administer medication and HCAPs to have in the health office prior to school starting. Visit our Clinic page for more info.
  • Come to Schedule Pick Up on Tuesday, August 14th, between 9am-12pm, or 1pm-3pm. Schedules will be available and school pictures will be taken.  Please enter the Main Entrance of Powell and proceed to the cafeteria.  Please note: it is always busiest right at the beginning. If you have completed your Annual Family Check-In and paid your Fees online, the process should be quick and easy.  We thank you for your understanding.  
  • Studio 5 Portraits will be at Powell for picture retakes on Tuesday, September 25th during lunch.  Pay online in advance here.  Even if parents don't wish to purchase a package, all students must have their picture taken since every student is required to have a current student ID.   Students who ride the bus must show their ID’s before boarding the bus. We also use the student ID’s for verification purposes within the school day.
