Parent Portal Grades can be viewed by you at any time through this portal. You should have a user ID & password that will allow you to view your child’s grades in all classes. I will make every attempt to update this weekly (Fridays). I encourage students to double-check that their grades are correct. It is their responsibility to keep track of this.
