Absence Reporting Form

To better track illness trends across the district we are now using an online form for reporting absences. We are no longer using the absentee phone line. You may bookmark this form as an icon on your phone using this video tutorial.


SNAP Health Portal

The Wellesley Nursing Department is pleased to announce the launch of the SNAP Parent Health Portal. The health portal is an online platform that gives you direct access to your student’s health record and streamlines communication and health services directly with your school nurse in a faster, secure, and meaningful way. Read more about the SNAP Health Portal on the WPS Nursing website.

Log into PowerSchool using the same username and password you use to access report cards and click the SNAP Health Portal icon on the left sidebar.

Required Online Account Creation for ALL Students


All families must create an online account with the district for each child.

All new and returning P.A.W.S. families must create an online account with the district. You must register each child. Click HERE to access the link to the site.

Please note:

  • You must register your child for the classroom your child has been assigned to. If you are not sure of your child’s classroom placement, please contact the P.A.W.S. office and we will assist you.
  • If you have questions regarding the tuition, please contact the P.A.W.S. office.
