PARENT/GUARDIAN COMMUNICATIONS AND PORTAL:   A newsletter, program happenings, invitations to events, and other communications will be shared on a regular basis with those who provide their email address. Parent Portal is highly recommended to monitor student progress and connect with your student’s instructors. Instructors are using a gradebook that allows you to view your student’s grades, schedule, and attendance online.  Please note: The 916 Parent Portal is not connected with any of your student’s home school communication systems and must be activated separately.  Information will be emailed to set up your account in late September.
