Powerschool Parent Portal
What Is the Parent Portal?
The District’s new student information management program allows parents of students in grades 4-12 to log into their students’ accounts via an internet connection. Parents may request a login ID and password which will allow them to access student grade reporting and attendance information. Logging in to the Parent Portal gives parents access to faculty gradebooks, attendance information, teacher comments, daily bulletin announcements and student course request information.
What Do I Need to Use the Parent Portal?
• To log in to the Parent Portal, you need access to a computer that can connect to the internet. The computer can be a Windows PC or Macintosh.
• PowerSchool is accessed by using a browser such as Internet Explorer, Netscape, Safari, Firefox or any similar browser.
• You must have a username and password for each of your children. Parents will see only the information for the one student assigned that particular login.
How Do I Request a Login?
You may request a login and password by downloading the form below, filling it out, and returning the tear-off portion to your child’s homeroom teacher. Please indicate on the bottom of the form whether you prefer to pick up the login information in person, or whether you prefer to have the information mailed to you.
Remember to Update Your eAlert Emergency Notification System
Bemus Point Schools activated an emergency notification system, in addition to television announcements, that will alert parents when there is a school closing. Initially, all students’ primary phone numbers were uploaded to the eAlert system for phone notification for school closings only.
Parents can access the emergency notification system via the school’s website to modify their alerts. You may choose to be notified by your home phone, your cell phone or texting, or email. Each student can have up to six different forms of communication for these emergency notifications. When you access the form online, you will see a variety of notifications to which you may opt to subscribe. This form is submitted directly to eAlert, not to the school district. Anyone may opt to subscribe to the emergency notifications, whether or not they live in our District. eAlert will allow us to communicate with parents more efficiently and effectively.
