Lincoln PTO Directory

The Lincoln School PTO uses MySchoolAnywhere to manage a directory of families.  MySchoolAnywhere is easy to use, and is being used by other public schools in Brookline.

Current Lincoln Families

Lincoln families already in the directory from last year will be sent a Data Confirmation email each fall.  This email has a link to a page where families can verify and correct  their contact information, and associate their students with their assigned classrooms for the new school year.  [The PTO does not have access to classroom assignments.  Families associate students with classrooms during the confirmation process.]

If your family has not received a Data Confirmation email, please follow the New Family Instructions, below.  MySchoolAnywhere will automatically detect that you’re re-entering information for an existing family registration, and send you a Data Confirmation email.

Once families have confirmed their data for the new year, they can login and access the directory, either

If you’ve forgotten your login information, you can use the “Forgot your Password?” link on the MySchoolAnywhere website.

New Family Instructions

If your family is new to Lincoln, or if your family was not in our directory last year, you can add yourself to our new directory with a few simple steps.

Just visit the MySchoolAnywhere ‘join’ page, fill in our school’s invite code, and then enter your own family information into the directory.   Be sure to include students’ current classroom assignments.

On a weekly basis the PTO will review and accept new family entries, after which you can login and use the directory.

Directory FAQs

What is this directory used for?

This is not an official school district directory, it is a directory of Lincoln families managed by the PTO for the purpose of facilitating communication between families and from the PTO.  The directory is also used for sending Lincoln Lines, the PTO’s weekly email newsletter, and by some class parents for classroom communication.

Do both parents need to confirm their directory data?

Data confirmation only has to be done once per family.  When one parent in the family completes the confirmation process, all parents will then have directory access.

What is “Family Name” in the directory?

The directory has a “Family Name” for each family.  This should be the last name of the children in the family.  In some cases the Family Name may be hyphenated (“Johnson-Smith”) or multiple words (“Johnson Smith”), whatever is most appropriate for each family.

How much information do I need to fill in?

The PTO uses the directory primarily to email news and announcements, so it’s important to enter an email address.  Beyond that, it’s up to you to decide how much information you want to share with other families.  It may be useful to include cell numbers, but not so important to fill in a home address.

Directory access is restricted to Lincoln families. Whatever information you decide to include will not be publicly available on the internet.

What if my email address changes?

Account resets and password changes are sent the email address we have listed for you in the directory.  But in some cases you may no longer have access to the previous email account.  If this happens, send us an email at LincolnPTODirectory@gmail.com with your old and new email addresses and we’ll correct the directory.

How do families new to Lincoln sign up for the directory?

Families that are new to the Lincoln community can visit the MySchoolAnywhere ‘join’ page and enter their own information into the directory.  Administrators will review and accept the new family entries.

The join page is:  http://join.myschoolanywhere.com and the invite code is: 19kennard
