We encourage all parents to check gradebook weekly at a minimum; without printed midterms this quarter, counselors are very concerned some parents may be unaware of how their students are doing in class. It is imperative that parents know and understand how their students are doing, if they have missing work, and their student’s attendance. Parents can log on to www.portal.graniteschools.org and click on the gradebook icon. From there, in the “alerts” tab, parents can select notifications they want to receive. *Remember to press SAVE once updated. Parents can add up to three emails to these alerts. Counselors recommend all parents receive the weekly attendance and grade summary; this detailed report will be emailed on Friday and show all of a students’ classes, assignments, grades, and attendance by period.
