Family Access

Family Access student administrative system involves parents in the education process and allows the district to provide information as soon as it becomes available. Parents can view their student’s attendance with a convenient calendar, access a detailed class schedule, and look at food purchases and balances online. Parents can also view quarter-end grades for elementary students and week-to-week grade book information with test, assignment, and quiz scores for their middle and high school students. Skylert/School Messenger System uses the information you have in Family Access for emergency communications and meal account notices.
