Be sure to assist them with attendance and time management so that they do not fall behind in school.
Accessing Schoology will give you a clear idea of the assignments, due dates, and materials for each class. Every teacher has a Schoology page.
Accessing the Parent Portal will inform you of your child's ATTENDANCE, GRADES, and any warnings of missing assignments. You can set the portal to notify you on your cell phone if your child has been marked absent or when assignments are scored and grades entered.
