Fall Check-In will be On-Line!!

Fall Check-In will be On-Line!!

All students returning to McElwain  for the 2018-2019 school year will need to "check-in" on line.  To do this, you will need to have a Parent Portal acount on Infinite Campus.  This is an easy account to set up and your information and that of your student(s) is absolutely secure.  We hope to be scheduling a couple of lab sessions to help you set this up if you are having difficulty.  More on that to come later.  Note:  NEW students will still need to come to the school and complete the paper registration.  Dates for that will follow in a communication from the school.  In the meantime, here is some more information on this change:

Dear McElwain Families,

We encourage you to create an Infinite Campus (IC) Parent Portal account. Infinite Campus is our online student and family information system. In the Parent Portal you can update personal contact information. Other benefits may include viewing student grades, test scores and other academic information pertaining to your student.

At McElwain, we want to partner with you in the success of your student(s) and are very happy to provide another way to keep communications open.  On the parent portal in Infinite Campus you will be able to track your child's attendance and discipline records. You will be able to easily email their teacher directly to ask questions, get clarifications or let them know about a concern you have.  Once teachers begin using the on-line grading module (not yet available for elementary schools) you will be able to see your child's grades and missing assignments.

This summer we are moving to an online check-in process for returning students, removing the need for parents to wait in long lines to confirm their child’s enrollment for the 18-19 school year. The online process can be accessed through the IC Parent Portal account, saving parents time and energy when confirming enrollment for their child. You will need a Parent Portal account this summer, so we encourage you to create one in advance.  It's easy!  Just go to www.adams12.org and scroll to the bottom of the page.  Click on the Infinite Campus icon and create and account.

Parents can create an IC Parent Portal account on their own or contact their child’s school for assistance. If you have an account but forgot your login information, reset your username and/or password.

Thank you for your continued support of McElwain Elementary.

Sincerely,

Justina Carney
Principal
