Byers Parent Link

The Byers Parent Link is an online app powered by the program MySchoolAnywhere (MSA) that helps parents connect with the school community. STP uses the Parent Link to communicate with families. The Parent Link is available only to DSST: Byers parents and staff. On the Parent Link, you will find advisory listings, individual family data, and volunteer signup opportunities. You can customize which family data is displayed. (For example, you can choose to show your email address but not your physical address.)

 

New families can “opt in” to the Parent Link using the link https://myschoolanywhere.com/join.a5w and the invitation code: DSSTByers.


After a family opts in, the Parent Link coordinator (a parent volunteer) checks with the school office to verify the family’s 2018-19 enrollment at DSST: Byers. Once enrollment is verified, parents are granted access to the Parent Link.
