Welcome to the Parent Portal!
I appreciate everyone's help and feedback as we rollout this new program. I just found out that the Parent Portal updates itself at midnight each night. That is when the attendance codes and new grades will appear in the Parent Portal. I had been told that the two systems were more closely connected to where changes in the teachers' gradebooks would automatically appear. This is true, but apparently they only automatically appear at midnight each day.
Please remember that most teachers still use the weekend to grade and so grades will still be running about a week behind. Then when teachers input the grades into their gradebooks, the grades will appear in the Parent Portal at midnight that night. Attendance updates itself every night. When a note is sent to school and the absent code changes, then the new code will appear at midnight as well.
I am sorry for any confusion that may have caused. Please feel free to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org or 966-1936 if you have any questions or concerns.
