Quarter 1 Grading Report

Quarter 1 ended on October 16th. Due to school closure, traditional hard copies of report cards are not being distributed. All grades are have been finalized and are accessible to be viewed via PowerSchool (our online student information system). The information on Powerschool is available for both parents and students to access. Parents may access Powerschool through the Parent Portal. Parents will need to create an account prior to accessing student information. Videos have been provided below to help demonstrate how to create a Parent Portal account as well as viewing grades and attendance in PowerSchool.

**Please note that if you picked up a chromebook, you were provided with a Parent Access Code. You will need to use that code to create your account. If you have misplaced your code, please send an email to (one of) your child's teachers.**

Trailblazers Team Updates

A Message from Ms. Byrd:

We are now in Quarter 2. Here are just a few reminders moving forward. Please encourage your child to join the class on time daily and to remain for its duration. I am finding that there are a few students who join the class, keep their cameras off and leave. When the teacher does random checks during the class there is no response from them because they are not there.

Secondly, students are given time during the class to complete their work, however some are still not completing them. Please ensure that your child is completing and submitting their classwork. I appreciate all the effort you all are making during this trying time. We want to ensure the success of your child and with your support we will accomplish this.
