Welcome to Stone Ridge
Welcome to the New SR Family Resource web page. This page contains links to pages on the School's website regarding important dates, transportation, afterschool programs, uniform guidelines, and much more. It will be updated over the next several months with pertinent information so please check back often.
If you have any questions about the information contained in these pages, we advise you to please feel free to email or call your child’s Division Office (see Quick Contacts).
Staying connected at Stone Ridge:
The website is the main way Stone Ridge families stay informed about life at Stone Ridge. Your main resource will be the internal website, Inside Stone Ridge (“Inside SR”) which provides you access to the Parent and Student Portals. There you will find important information related to your child’s Division, such as current announcements, your Division calendar, news posts, teachers’ class pages, and media galleries. You will have access to Inside SR in May (we will email you when access is open to our new families).
Click here to watch a short video to introduce you to our Parent Portal area or click here for the Reference Guide to guide you through the login process.
If you have questions regarding the log in process or you forgot your username and/or password, which was set up during your application process, you may contact your child’s Division office, Website Manager Patty Lynch, ext. 459, or the Registrar Michelle Cofino, ext. 405. At this time, newly enrolled students will not be able to access Inside SR by her own account. Your daughter(s) will be instructed through her technology class on how to access Inside SR, with her own username and password, at the beginning of the school year.
