The PTA is proud to help support the school's use of a new data service called Operoo, which will allow you to read school correspondence in any language you select and to complete many school forms on your phone, tablet or computer. This week, Operoo will send you an email, asking you to set up your profile and fill out some initial forms like:

  • ESMS School Handbook and Parent Release Form

  • Emergency Blue Card

  • Student Directory

  • Cell Phone Database

  • DOE media consent

Later in the year, you'll be able to submit field trip permission slips, graduation materials and more. We hope it will help eliminate redundancy and make it easier to complete school and city form requirements.
