Yes! There’s an app for that!

Students can access their most current grades and assignments through Student Connect. Parents/guardians can see the same information through their own login on Parent Connect.

Now, parents and guardians can access that information through a new app. An important feature of the app is that parents/guardians will be able to report student absences online instead of needing to call in to have the absence excused.

This press release has more details and a link for the app.

If you have questions or require assistance with the app, you may contact the school office at 827-4600 or the district office at 827-3030.
