New Grading Policy
PowerSchool Helpful Tips:
Helpful Tip #1: When you see your child's grade, if you click on the actual grade (A), you will see a breakdown of the individual assignments.
Helpful Tip #2: Please understand that this is a huge piece of communication between you and your child's teacher. In essence, by the teachers entering the grades in the grade book, this is their way of communicating to you about your child's progress. The teachers expect that you are checking Parent Portal each week. If you have any questions about grades, ask your child first (they should know!) and then email the teacher if further clarification is needed concerning an assignment/grade.
Helpful Tip #3: You can download the PowerSchool app for your smart phone. You can see live attendance, assignments, scores, grades and more. There is also a student version that you can download if your child wants to have the information on his/her smart phone.
Helpful Tip #4: If you are coming from an elementary school in New Hanover County, your PowerSchool username and password are the same.
Rising 7th Grade Parents:
Students entering 7th grade are required to have one dose of Tdap (tetanus, diphtheria, pertussis) vaccine and one dose of meningococcal conjugate vaccine for individuals who have not already received those vaccines. Documentation of these vaccines must be provided to the school; compliance will be audited.
A form was sent home with students on the first day of school. If you would like to have your student vaccinated at school, please return the form. Insurance information must be provided. Free vaccinations are available regardless of insurance at the New Hanover County Health & Human Services building located at 1650 Greenfield Street.

Due to numerous changes in routes, stops, riders and times throughout the school year, please download the Edulog Parent Portal bus tracking phone application. Once your child is registered, it will have the most up-to-date route information.
