ONLINE DIRECTORY

To access the Westport PTA Online Directory, all members of the Westport Schools community, including new incoming parents and registered users of 2013–2014 edition of the Westport PTA Online Directory need to complete a simple, three-step registration: 

Step 1. Go to https://westport.mobilearq.com/school_directory_parent_register.html
Step 2. Enter your email ID (submitted to the school) name and provide consent to be in the directory.
Step 3. Submit Westport PTA Dues and optional ‘Angel Donations’ online or offline.

Note: The 2014-15 directory will be an “opt out” to provide the most complete district–wide listing possible. This means a home address and home phone number will be listed for all families even if you choose not to join the PTA(s) and access the Directory. If you do not want to be listed, please contact your school PTA Directory Chairperson.

New Users

Following registration and payment of PTA dues, you will receive an email from MobileArq/Westport PTA with the following information:

 

  • Confirmation of registration for the Westport PTA Online Directory
  • Confirmation of your payment of PTA dues
  • A link to the Online Directory login page, login ID and a temporary password required to access the directory

 

To ensure that your email server does not filter the email from Westport PTA/MobileArq to a spam folder, please add support-westport@mobilearq.com to the address book of your email server. 

Registered Users of the 2013–2014 Westport Schools Mobile Directory

Following registration renewal and payment of PTA dues, you will receive an email from Westport PTA/MobileArq with confirmation of registration and payment.

You can then access the 2014-2015 directory with your email ID and password that was used for accessing the 2013–2014 directory. If you have forgotten your password from last year, there is a Forgot Password link on the login page that takes you to a page to reset your password.
