Parent portals are primarily a mirror of the student portal. Parents can know the assignments and grades of their child/children, send LoopMails, and know about school news among other things. This article provides an overview of the information available on the Parent portal.
- Icon Toolbar
A parent's portal has the same LoopMail and Calendar icons as all other users of School Loop Plus. There is no Locker or DropBox icon for the Parent Portal.
All of the grades, percentages, and number of zeros are located here. If a teacher has not published grades, you will see "No Grades Published". If all classes show "Grades Hidden", then click the Show Grades button in the gray bar. Click the course score for a course to get a detailed view including the 5 most recently graded assignments a list of assignments with a zero and a grade trend graph. A link to the full progress report is available here as well. There are convenient LoopMail icons next to each teacher's name so you can quickly send any teacher a message. Alternately, you may use the Learning Team link below the course list to send a message to any or all teachers and other members of the student's team. Course titles link to the Classroom. Teacher names link to their website if published. Access to the Zeros Alert!, Prior schedule, and Submitted Work are also available below the course list.
Note: Depending on how the school has configured the permission settings for School Loop, your parent account may have to be approved to view grades, and adding a new student to your account may require that your account be approved again. These settings are in place to protect the privacy of student information. Permission to view student grades are granted by the school administrators and each school establishes its own approval process. Please contact your school for more information.
The optional Attendance feature displays a Student's absences and tardies for the current week by period and/or by a full day. Click the View All Attendance link to view all attendance data for the school year. The legend is created by school staff and appears on the bottom of the attendance display.

All of their children on their account are listed in this section of their portal. Clicking the names of their children switches their view to that student's information.
This section of the parent portal shows the current replies to discussions in which the parent is participating.
