Dear MISTAR Users,

Returning Ferndale Schools parents and students will have the same pin and password.

Your pin and password are valid throughout your Ferndale Schools Enrollment.

Parents and students please keep your pin and password in safe place. MISTAR pin and password will only be available electronically. A valid email address must be on file with the school district in order to obtain a pin and password electronically.

The district’s student information system, MISTAR, has a feature which allows parents/guardians (and students) to view your student’s information through the internet. You can view grades, attendance, cafeteria use, biographical and contact information.
