Family Access is an easy way to keep track of your students school information! From assignments and attendance to lunch accounts, your pre-assigned log-in and passwords takes you directly into the Family Access & Gradebook program and helps you stay connected. If you have not already started using this great tool, please contact Sally Riddle at 709-7503 for your log-in and password information so you can start using this program today! Talk to your student about their 'Student Access' program. They have the same ability to check on assignments and keep track of due-dates. This feature will be available after school starts this year!
