You should have received an email if your account has not been activated. Please stop by the front office to pick up your Synergy parent account activation. You will be asked to present a picture ID since Synergy houses personal and confidential information. If you cannot stop by, please call Kimberley Junk at 619.522.8921 x 3096.
