Dear Parent/Guardian,

It is time to complete your child(ren)'s Annual Permission and Medical Forms. It is important that we have all of your correct contact, medical and permission information each year, so we ask that you confirm and update your child(ren)'s information annually.

You access these forms via the PowerSchool Parent Portal. Once logged into PowerSchool, you will complete the forms by clicking InfoSnap (this saves you from having to log in to more than once to access your child(ren)'s information and account(s)).

Follow the directions under the heading that best describes your situation.

Thank you!

My child is struggling in a course, what do I do?

If your child is struggling in a course the first step is for your child to meet with the teacher. If your child has met with the teacher and is still struggling, your child should schedule a meeting with his or her counselor. While parents are always welcome to contact teachers, we feel that it is important for students to speak directly with teachers first.

How do I check my child's grade?

The PowerSchool Portal is the official grade of record. You can view this grade by logging into your child's portal. Although some teachers may enter and/or grade in Schoology, the official grade of record is in PowerSchool as PowerSchool is where student transcripts are generated and GPA is calculated. If you're having trouble logging into your child's portal please email Help Desk.
