Dear Parents,

   The PowerSchool parent portal will be opening again at the end of this week. For those of you who are unaware, the PowerSchool parent portal is where you are able to track all of your child's grades. 

 

    In October the school mailed home an envelope containing your child's access codes for the PowerSchool Parent Portal as well as a list of all their username and passwords for their online textbooks and online websites used by teachers (almost all classroom textbooks are available online). The list was also pasted in the back of each students’ agenda in grades K-8.

 

      As was presented during “Meet the Teacher Night”, it is the parents’ responsibility to check their students’ grades. When you sign up with the PowerSchool parent portal you can set up your account to receive email messages of grades that have been updated. This can be an email every day or once a week. You can also log on through the website or app to check your child's grades daily. 

And in every class you will be able to view daily or weekly participation grades, if your child is handing in homework, and of course their grades in tests and quizzes. 

 

       PowerSchool Parent Portal is a wonderful program where the teachers and parents work together to keep the students on track. If you need another copy of your access information, or need help in understanding the PowerSchool parent portal please contact 

Mrs..McHugh-Schreiber at bmchugh-schreiber5622@ollschool.org 

She will be happy to assist you in any way possible. 

 

Sincerely,

Mrs. Louise Jane Krol
