Parents/Guardians

Hello Granite Patrons,

We hope this email will provide you with more information on what a parent portal account is, and why it would be useful for you to have one. You may go to https://portalhelp.graniteschools.org for instructions on how to create a parent portal account.

There are many reasons to create a portal account, below are some we would like to highlight.

·You will be able to:

  • Access back-to-school online registration – Granite district requires you to have a parent portal account before you will be able to use the back-to-school online registration feature

  • View your student’s grades and attendance

  • Receive weekly grade and attendance e-mails

  • View your student’s current and past state test scores

  • Pay school fees

  • View report cards

  • Schedule parent/teacher conferences – depending on the school

  • View Canvas

  • View School City

  • Make school lunch payments through PayPams

  • Update your email and phone numbers through the contact card

In order to make sure the creation of your portal account goes smoothly, below are a few things to consider:

·       If you are a Granite District employee, you will need to use a personal email account – gmail, Hotmail, yahoo, etc. – in order to create your portal account. You will not be able to use your employee email address to create a parent portal account.

 

When choosing your password, make sure to follow the below requirements:

  • Must be at least seven characters long

  • At least one upper case letter

  • At least one lower case letter

  • At least one number

  • At least one special symbol (i.e. !, $, #, %, etc) ­

  • Cannot have any part of your name or username

You will want to make sure the information you are entering to create your portal account is the exact same information we have listed in our student information system.  For example, if your name is Rebecca, but you go by Becky, and your name is spelled Rebecca in our system, you will need to use Rebecca to create the parent portal account. If you try to use Becky, it will not recognize you as a contact on your student’s record and give you an error message.

 

If you do not receive a confirmation email to activate your account, you can do the following:

  • Check your spam/junk folder to see if it went there

  •  Request a new email be sent to the email address provided by clicking here - https://portalaccount.graniteschools.org/AccountRegistrationForm/Activation

  • Call the school and have them activate the account for you

  • Call the district information systems department at 385-646-4509 and they will be able to manually activate your account

 

We have a website (https://portalhelp.graniteschools.org) that outlines all of this, and more, to help you become familiar with what is available to you once you create a parent portal account.

Sincerely, Granite Information Systems
