Students who did not receive initial login instructions, or those who are newly enrolled, may visit the school main office for login information.

Parent Accounts

Parents and guardians may create an account online here: Create a Web Portal Account. The keyword is: comets.

Please see the step-by-step instructions on how to apply for a new account.

Parents must accept the site policy and complete the online application. Be sure to include all of your children enrolled in the Penn Manor School District under the Children Information section so they are all linked to your account. Complete all required fields and press Save and Continue.

Once your application has been reviewed, and approved, you will receive an approval email at the address you provided during the account creation process.

Parents may setup email notifications that signal when teachers have posted grades and/or other information to their student’s online Backpack.

Lost Passwords

For security reasons, the district will not disclose username or password information over the phone or via email. Parents or students who have lost passwords may stop by the main office of their school to have the password reset.
