Introductory Window

 

Clicking on Family gives relationships, family address, phone numbers, and enrollment date.

Clicking on Calendar lets you see a broad overview of the assignments given for ALL of your children by ALL of their teachers on a month-by-month basis and will show attendance events (a bell on a particular day indicates an attendance event-ex: tardy, excused absences, unexcused absences).  We are unable at this time to view the absences as coded by the office (death, doctor, school related activity, etc.).  Please follow the coding given on the portal (letter and color chart) as the legend.  A "P" is coding for School Related absences.

Clicking on your child's name takes you to a message board.  You will receive notifications in this location.

Clicking on the current school enrollment year (ex: 09-10) will show a particular child's assignment and attendance calendar

Clicking on Schedule will give the students school year class schedule with teacher, course, and grade book information.  Teacher e-mail is not available through the portal at this time.  Please use the Contact Form on the teacher's website if you wish to e-mail the teacher (from the school website, select Classrooms and find the teacher listed by grade level).

Click on the course number and name (it is a link) to view the assignments and grading information.

Grade recording by teachers for assignments is as follows:

-   Elementary - updated once a week

-   Middle School and High School - 4 days from assignment due date

Clicking on Attendance gives you a summary of attendance by 9 weeks (called terms) and an overview of your child's attendance to-date (legend is the scale to use for attendance coding-color code and letter code).

When you are ready to exit the parent portal, please get in the habit of using the "Log Off" command provided at the bottom, left of the navigation bar.

THE PARENT PORTAL WILL NOT BE ACCESSIBLE DURING GRADE REPORTING PERIODS--END OF NINE WEEKS, END OF SEMESTERS.  THE PORTAL WILL RE-OPEN AFTER REPORT CARDS ARE SENT HOME.
