We understand that families in Pembina Trails receive a lot of information from a variety of places. That’s why we are working hard to put important information onto a single platform.
Edsby lets you view your child’s attendance, assignments, teacher meetings, and school communication. In later phases, Edsby will become even more of a “one-stop shop” (or communication hub) by adding report cards, parent-teacher interviews, and more!
Edsby keeps everything safe and secure within the confines of our school division meaning no one from the outside world is “allowed in”.
How do I get an Edsby account?These instructions show you how - if you have multiple children in the division make sure to add them all to the same Edsby account! If you did not receive an email invitation, please contact the school office. Edsby communicates from the email address firstname.lastname@example.org so you may need to check your spam folders.
Now is the time to ensure the school secretary has your current and correct email address as this email address will be your Edsby username. Edsby provisions each parent/guardian with their own account so we encourage you to ensure we have addresses for each individual.
Please remember, that the email you have supplied to our office should be kept secure and private. Your children should not have access to this account as the school may send sensitive information through email or set up accounts using that email address.
