Making Open Communication a Priority:This linked Who to Call with Questions, Concerns and Compliments reference guide is a step-by-step guide families can use to ensure questions are answered quickly and effectively. Please refer to it whenever you need to speak to someone about your child’s progress. We are asking that you log into your child’s Infinite Campus account and review the phone numbers and email addresses listed. Follow these instructions to access your account and make the necessary changes as soon as possible. If you do not have access to Infinite Campus or forgot your password, someone in the main office at your child’s school can help you get set up. Students are encouraged to have a direct, in-person conversation with their teacher as a first step if a question or concern arises. Grades are a form of communication and should not be a surprise. Students should regularly access the Infinite Campus Student Portal and reach out to their teachers in a proactive manner if they have any questions or concerns regarding their grades.
