Attendance & Progress

How do I check my students attendance and Progress? You can check your student’s attendance and progress, grades, completion of assignments by using our web based computer grading system, aka: POWERSCHOOL Parents and students are given Power School access to check academic progress in classes. Please use the login and passwords provided on the Grade Report to check daily progress. Teachers have their grades updated each week. This is a great way to track homework and class participation. You may also schedule a conference with your student’s teachers.

Do our schools enforce a dress code? Yes. The dress code is designed to maintain a level of decorum which will ensure that the best possible learning environment for teachers and students is created and preserved. Read our STUDENT DRESS REGULATIONS
