Climate Survey

Three text "bubbles" on green with white writing reads "Your" one blue with white writing says "Voice" one purple with white writing says "Matters!"

The climate survey is available online, and we encourage parents and guardians to give their feedback about Mary Esther Elementary School. Go to www.okaloosaschools.com website; under the Parents/Students tab, select Parent Portal. You will need your student's number (can be found on student report cards). Put in your student's number and use the last four digits of that number as the pin. We hope to have at least 100 surveys completed.
