FAMILY ACCESS, our student administrative software from Skyward, enables us to provide you, over the Internet, the following student information: Daily Progress, Attendance, Schedule, Quarterly/Semester Grades, your student’s basic Demographic Information, and the ability to update your contact information.

This will take you to the main Skyward Family Access screen. Near the top in the middle will be your child’s name.
