AT THE START OF THE SCHOOL YEAR….
The beginning of a new school year is a very busy time for teachers, secretaries and administrators. Staff will need time to update student information and complete scheduling and grading setup. Given this information, the parent portal registration process may be delayed. In addition, grading information in the parent portal could also be delayed until enrollments are final and staff has had the opportunity to prepare grading formats.
High School – Absences are recorded each class period during the day.
Middle School – Absences are recorded each class period during the day.
Elementary – Absences are recorded morning and entry/exit log is updated throughout the day. Excuses are coded during the day.
Concerns about the data you find on the portal should be addressed to the secretary or principal in your child’s building.
