    Family Access-Skyward Instructions

    FAMILY ACCESS, our student administrative software from Skyward, enables us to provide you, over the Internet, the following student information: Daily Progress, Attendance, Schedule, Food Service Account Information, Quarterly/Semester Grades, your student’s basic Demographic Information, and the ability to turn on Email Notifications.

    To connect to Skyward Family Access:

    Click on the “Skyward Family Access” button on any of the school’s home pages. The Skyward Family Access Login Screen should appear.
    Enter your Family login ID and Password. If you lose your ID and/or Password, please call the main office of the school your child attends.

    Click on the “Enter” button.
    This will take you to the main Skyward Family Access screen. Near the top in the middle will be your child’s name. If you have more than one child, their names can be seen by clicking on the arrow to the right of the name. A drop down box will display their names. The default information displayed is a history of the information accessed at the last login.

    To access attendance information:

    Click on the “Attendance” button on the left side of the screen. The current month’s calendar will be displayed with symbols displayed on the days your student was absent. A definition of the symbol is given at the bottom of the screen.

    Click on the “Schedule” button on the left side of the screen. Your student’s current schedule is displayed on the “Current” tab.  Once course requests are put in for next year you can view them under the “Next year” tab.
