What else does a Parent Portal Account offer me?
Parent Portal offers you information that can help you stay involved in your child’s educational success. Parents can update their contact and family information online 24/7 from their computer or via apps for the iPhone, iPad and Android phones. You can also verify your child’s attendance, check the school calendar, view school notices and contact your child’s teacher directly. Parents of intermediate and high school students can also check on pending assignments (including due dates), verify that key assignments are being turned in, check grades on key assignments /tests, and view standardized test scores.

We are bound by student privacy laws and must ensure that the person holding a Parent Portal access is the student’s parent and/or legal guardian.
What methods of payment are accepted through TouchBase?
Online payments can be made with VISA, Mastercard or Discover or by using a debit card.
Payments at the school office can be made by cash, check, major credit card or debit card.

The convenience fee for online payments will range from a minimum of $1.00 to a maximum of $5.00, depending upon the types and number of transactions you are making. As with many other online systems, you will see a detailed receipt of your transactions for each TouchBase session including any convenience fees prior to “checking out” and confirming the payment.
