Click here to access PowerSchool and Online Back to School Forms.

PowerSchool gives families of students in grades 2-12 easy access to class grades, attendance information and student schedules. The online tool comes in two versions: one for students, and one for parents and guardians called PowerSchool Parent Portal.

Today, Thursday, Aug. 16, PowerSchool Parent Portal opened for account creation, notices and online forms.

On Tuesday, Aug. 28 after 9:30 a.m., bus route information will be available for grades 2-12 on the PowerSchool Parent Portal webpage. Note: If you are using the PowerSchool app, then you will not be able to see bus route information, because it is only available through the PowerSchool Parent Portal web page.

While students can log in using their HCPS usernames and passwords, parents and guardians must create their own accounts. Parents who used the system in 2017-18 will be able to log in with their existing usernames and passwords.
