The Marple Newtown School District Technology Department has completed verifying and entering data from the returned Infinite Campus Verification forms as of October 26th.

We have received several reports that parents\guardians have not received their activation codes. After investigating the issue with several families, a common cause was identified. The activation emails were being flagged as SPAM by their email service providers such as Yahoo, Google, Hotmail, etc.

Please be sure to check the SPAM folder within your email account.

If an activation email still has not been delivered, please submit an email to:
