Report Cards

  • Printed report cards are only being provided by request.
  • Students will be able to view their report cards Wednesday morning, September 13th, 2017,  by logging into StudentVue and clicking “Report Card” on the right.
  • Then click on “GP1” on the top right.

All class grades and comments should then be viewable.

  • Students and Parents will have the option to print their report cards by clicking the notice below their name and picture:

This feature will require a desktop and/or networked printer obviously.

 

  • Any student or parent unable to access parentvue/studentvue should contact the counseling office for assistance.  The counseling office will be able to print report cards for those who prefer a printed copy.  If you have difficulty with any of the above, please contact the counseling office.
