Welcome Back!

  • Welcome to the 2021-22 school year! We are excited to welcome you and your families to Brookline. Throughout the summer, we will update this page regularly leading up to the first day of school, so make sure to bookmark this page and to access the latest information!

Getting Started

  • Here are few things you will need to do over the first few weeks of school to ensure that your students are ready!

    Verify your Student(s) Contact Information on the Aspen Parent Portal

    • What it is: Aspen is the Public Schools of Brookline's online student information system for students and parents. It contains progress reports, report cards, class schedules, attendance, contact information, and other important records.

    • How to access: Families new to PSB will receive an email with their login information after student registration is completed. In September, PSB will ask all parents to log in to the Parent Portal and update/confirm their contact information.

    • Who to contact if you need help: Contact the PSB Data Team at datateam@psbma.org.


    Verify your Student(s) Health Information with the School Nurse

    • What is it: All PSB students must meet Massachusetts School Immunization Requirements and submit the necessary documentation to their school nurse. 

    • How to access: Every student will receive a Health and Medical Card during their first week of school. Please carefully review all of the information on both sides, make any necessary updates (please write legibly), sign the back of the card and return it to your school nurse. In addition, if you have updated forms or medications, please call or email your school nurse.

    • Who to contact if you need help: Contact your school nurse here.
