PowerSchool is our student/family database. Parents can use this tool to view your student’s schedule, grades, report cards, emergency contacts, annual permissions and other forms for your student(s). The PowerSchool Parent Portal is open to parents to view and update their annual permissions in the early fall each year. If you need to makes changes to your contact information during the school year, please login to or use the PowerSchool Mobile App. Click the “Forms” icon. The Forms icon can be found on the left sidebar of the website or if using the Mobile App tap the “More” icon at the bottom and then tap “Forms.”  Under Optional Forms, open the “Contact Info Change Form,” update your phone number(s) and click “Submit.” NOTE: If you have multiple children is important that you only fill out ONE “Contact Info Change Form” per family to avoid creating duplicate contacts and other data errors.

Fine Tuning your Preferences: In addition the SchoolMessenger InfoCenter is available throughout the school year for updating your alert preferences for emails, text messages and phone calls. Below are links to the Parent Portal along with Frequently Asked Questions for PowerSchool troubleshooting tips. We request all parents update/confirm their student’s information each school year to be sure we have the latest information.

  1. Go to (or download the SchoolMessenger App). Click “Sign up” (or login if you already have an account). Sign up with the same email address that is on file with 9总探花. However, this is a separate sign-on account from PowerSchool, you will need to create a different account and password for SchoolMessenger. (Each parent in your family will need to create their own login if they wish to adjust their preferences.)
