Important notes:

  • 5th-8th grade parents – we are going one to one for these grade levels in technology. Chromebooks will be $300.00/Chromebook that your child will use 5th-8th grade as their own.  SJS will manage the technology until they graduate.  Let us know if you would like that amount on your FACTS account.  We will purchase a Chromebook for your child as we receive payment.  It will be theirs to keep at 8th grade graduation.
  • On RenWeb, you will be able to access your student’s grades, calendar, homework, forms, etc.   

If you are new to the school, go to and go to ParentWeb Login (upper right corner tab).  Click “Create new parentsweb account” using our school code:  SJ-AZ.  Type your email (this must be the email that St. Jerome uses to contact you). Click “Create Account.” An email will be sent to you.  Please go to this email immediately and use the hyperlink to finalize your account.
