Blythe Park School Directory – Verify/edit your information.

Posted by admin on September 2, 2019 under Uncategorized | Comments are off for this article

Please complete your Blythe Park School Directory verification by Friday, Sept. 6th.

This year the PTA will once again offer a secure online Blythe Park School Directory (available to all Blythe Park families) and a printed directory (available with your PTA membership).

In an effort to create an accurate and timely directory, we are using an online system to allow parents to verify/edit their own directory listings.

All Blythe families were sent an email with their Auto Login Link asking them to verify their household information for the Blythe Park School Directory. Please complete your verification by Friday, Sept. 6th.

  • This process should take no more than 5 minutes.
  • Once you complete the verification, you will be connected to Blythe Park’s online directory!
  • Families have the ability to edit, update, add or remove their own information. (This information will also be used for the print directory.)


If you did not receive your Login Link, please contact Maria D’Amico at blytheparkpta@yahoo.com
