You Spoke, We Listened!

After having many conversations with PTO members all year and analyzing the results of the end-of-year PTO Involvement Survey, a few things are clear:

  1. You want to access PTO items (calendar, sign-ups, store) and you want to get information without having to log into MySchoolAnywhere every time.
  2. You value PTO email communication and find our online directory to be a valuable resource.
  3. You want more information about what the PTO does, where the money we raise goes, and how you can get involved.

Therefore, we’ve made a few changes for the 2018-2019 year.  We will still use MySchoolAnywhere as our secure online directory and for communication and most sales transactions, however we have added a PTO website to provide more information and to make it more accessible to you.  RidePTO.digitalpto.com will serve as our public website and where you can find most information this year.  We encourage you to bookmark this page on your computer and phone browsers so that you can easily visit throughout the year.

We still need you to confirm and update your information on MySchoolAnywhere!  Why?

  • Ride PTO does not receive parent/family information from the school. We require you to provide that information to us for our directory and for email communication and quick and easy stores sales.  Whether you become a paid member of the PTO or not, we encourage all our parents to set up or update their MySchoolAnywhere (MSA) accounts.
  • Signing up or confirming your information on MSA is simple and fast. Just set a password that you can remember and be sure to confirm when the required confirmation emails go out prior to the start of school.  If you ever forget your password, just select “forgot password” and follow the simple steps to get back into your account.
  • While you will not have to log into MSA to make online purchases, you will be required to provide your email address (everyone can remember their email address), which will be linked to the information that you have already provided in MSA.
