Regular communication with your student's teachers and school is extremely important. Parents can access their student's grades and teacher websites through the Focus Grade Portal. Students login using their district issued user ID and password. Parents/Guardians can access the Focus Grade Portal with their district- issued logins and passwords which can be obtained from the main office or guidance office with proper identification. Due to student privacy and security, parent/guardian logins and passwords cannot be given out over the telephone or by email. Emailing your child's teacher(s) after accessing their grades and website is a quick and easy way to ensure your student is on track.
