What is Parent Portal?
Parent/guardians can access PowerSchool, our computerized student records database, through the Parent Portal. For our kindergarten through sixth-grade families, Parent Portal allows you to view contact information, important school information, and school news bulletins.
Parent Portal also is a link to our communication system called SchoolMessenger. Additional information about SchoolMessenger is enclosed, but first you need to become familiar with Parent Portal, and make sure you are set up, and have logged in to your account.
If you’re new to Parent Portal, please read the instructions below for setting up your account. If you already have an account for a student and have a new student attending school, all you need to do is “Add” a student to your account, by logging into the system, and starting at step 4 below.
