Q: When and how are grades communicated to parents?

The academic year is divided into three equal trimesters. Grades are reported at each mid-term and at the end of the trimester in a report card.  The mid-term of each trimester is indicated on our school's calendar.  As a reminder to parents, an e-mail will be sent the day prior to the mid-term of a trimester to remind you of the marking period and to encourage you to access your child's grade via the online portal.  Parents and students can access grades via Powerschool’s on-line portal. The link for parent access to grades is accessed using the same log-in and user id you use to access lunch account information. Parents and students simply need to click on the “Grades and Attendance” icon to view student grades, teacher comments regarding grades, and assignment marks. Grades will be routinely entered and a “last updated” date will show on the grade access screen so parents and students can see when grades were last entered and calculated. We encourage parents and students to check their grades on a regular basis and to discuss learning and academic progress together. At the end of each trimester, a hardcopy report card will be sent home in a special report card envelope with your child.  Your child is expected to share his/her report card with you and parents are asked to sign the report card envelope as evidence you have reviewed the report card.  Your child will then bring the empty report card envelope with your signature back to his/her teachers.
