Parents and Guardians:

With the start of the 2nd quarter this week, I wanted to update parents on some items that will be coming up in the next few weeks.

Report Cards:  With the move to the PlusPortals system, the high school will be asking parents to access their child’s report card online through this system.  Report cards may be viewed on Friday, 10/23/15 through the PlusPortals website.  Report cards will be mailed home only to parents who do not have an email registered with the school.  Once in the system, parents should click the “more” button to expand the view to multiple tabs that are listed at the top.  Within the “report cards” tab  (3rd tab from the left), parents will be able to see multiple columns for 1st quarter, 2nd quarter, etc.  The grades listed in the first column under “1st” will be the student’s final 1st quarter grade.  Other items on the top of the report card tab are the cumulative grade point average (GPA) labelled as, adjusted GPA (weighted), simple GPA (un-weighted), and cumulative credits earned.

Detailed Progress Reports:  Parents will be able to see their child’s final progress report, which lists individual assignment and assessment scores for the 1st quarter by accessing the far right tab labelled “reports.”  Accessing a student’s progress report for the 1st marking period will give a much more detailed report of the student’s grade for individual assignments and assessments. 

Faculty Online Presence: Within each class, teachers have indicated the primary avenue by which communication may take place with the instructor.  This is listed within the class summary of the tab labelled “Classes” within PlusPortals.  Another way to communicate with teachers is to access the “Staff and Faculty” website through www.triadhs.org.

Parent/Teacher Conferences:  Parent – Teacher (P/T) Conferences will be held Monday, October 26th   from 12:00-4:00PM and 5:00-7:45PM. All parents are encouraged to attend these open format conferences.  This is a great time to hear about their child’s progress and know how to support them in their studies.  Parents will not need an appointment to meet with their child’s teachers.  Monday night will be the busiest time of conferences at the high school.  Knowing this, teachers have been asked to limit their time for conferences during Monday evening to 5 minutes unless there isn’t anyone waiting outside their classroom.  If parents would like an extended time to meet with their child’s teacher, they are encouraged to come in on Monday afternoon or make an appointment for another day with the teacher.  A list of unavailable times for teachers is located on the THS homepage.  Teachers are looking forward to meeting with parents during this time!

Access to PlusPortals:  If parents still have not accessed PlusPortals, please contact the high school office at 667-5409*7060 to request access.  Following this request, an email will be sent providing instructions to log into the system.  If parents would like to have someone assist in helping them through the process of accessing PlusPortals, please come by the high school office during P/T conferences to request assistance.

Sincerely

Rodney Winslow
Triad High School Principal
