Schoology and Account Creation

Parents, parent access codes are sent confidentially via email a couple days before school starts from Nicole Read (Assistant Principal). This code allows you to create a parent account from the schoology site located here: (note that this is a different site than students use). A helpful video is available for parents here to guide them through the steps. In addition, this helpful guide has information on a variety of situations: linking multiple children accounts, changing your notifications, etc. Otherwise, the student screencast linked above is also pertinent parent information.

Additionally, this parent technology guide will be distributed at registration.

If after reviewing all the materials linked above, you have additional questions, please reach out to Nicole Read at

Accessing Student Email and Google Accounts
