  • Parent Access to Power School, Lunch Balance & Payments

    To access your child's lunch balance, make a payment, check grades and attendance you will need to set up a parent portal account. 

    Your child's power school number and temporary password will be on the sheet of instructions that your child brought home.

      If you've already set up a parent portal you do not need to redo it.  Use the same user name and password from last year.

School News & Events

  •  Playground
    The Point Higgins property (playground and surrounding area) is also used by community members on weekends and evenings.  School personnel does their best to keep our shared public use areas as clean as possible.  At any rate, please talk to your children at home about the importance of not picking up any trash or items left on the grounds the night before.  Our staff will continue to be vigilant of the many possible safety hazards that could be found in a public area.  Sometimes a student will spot something before an adult.  With your cooperation, we can teach our children to notify an adult if they see something that doesn't belong.  Thank you.
