Parent Letter PDF & Printing Instructions:

Parent letters can be used to provide parents access to the below information via PDF, or by printing:

  • Student Username and Password
  • Information about Prodigy
  • Instructions for the parent to create a free Prodigy Parent Account

If your students are learning from home, you have the option to download student login information as individual PDFs. Then, you can easily email student information to parents as a PDF attachment.

Important!

Parent letters contain a student's unique username and password and should be kept confidential to prevent any unauthorized access.

Do not post this PDF document online on any channel or website accessible to someone who is not the parent.

We highly recommend you share this information with parents directly on 1:1 channels like SMS, email or print.
