This letter will be sent home with all grade 7 and 8 students this week! Please look for this as it contains information to help parents create a username and password for the parent portal which allows parents to access current marks and attendance. Note, this is not available for parents of children in grade 6.
**It is important that students keep this information safe as it has a confidential code that allows parents to create their parent portal account.
Grade 6 report cards are not percentage based and the parent portal may be percentage based so the information in the parent portal is not consistent with what will be seen on the report card. Please stay in regular communication with your child's teacher(s) to keep informed about progress. Email addresses for all staff can be found here.
Information about the differences between the grade 6 and grade 7/8 report cards can be found here.
