Infinite Campus

Infinite Campus Parent and Student Portal

Letters were sent to Parents/Guardians of grade 5-12 students the week of December 16 with information regarding access to the Infinite Campus Parent/Student Portal.  If you missed that letter here is the same information:

1.      Each Parent/Guardian wanting access to the Portal must submit a request the GoogleForm at this web address:

2.      We will check the information on this form against the Infinite Campus database, and resolve any issues if necessary.

3.      We will then send you an email (to the address you provide on the GoogleForm) with an access code and directions for setting up your portal account. If all goes as planned we will begin having parents/guardians live on the portal by early January.  We will also provide students with directions for access through their TA/Advisory in early January. We appreciate your continued patience as we complete our transition from PowerSchool to Infinite Campus.
