James Hart School Update

Thursday, November 5, 2020

Zoom Safety Feature

Homewood School District 153 is continuously looking for ways to make our virtual classrooms more secure. We are excited to implement an advanced Zoom Security feature. Students will now be able to authenticate into their Zoom class using their Clever credentials. This additional security allows only students and staff of Homewood School District 153 to participate in Zoom classes.

This will require a slight change in how students will join their classes. Please see the attached letter from our technology department for more information.

Student Portal

Students now have access to their grades through Infinite Campus. Students will learn how to access the Student Portal in their Advisory class on Friday, November 6th.

The video below explains how to access the Student Portal:


There is a link on the James Hart website under "For Students" to access the Infinite Campus Student Portal website.

Parent Portal

Parent Portal is a great way to stay informed about your child's grades. Do you need Parent Portal Information? The link is below:
