Parent Guide

Online Resources

Grades and Attendance: Parents can view their children's attendance and assignments/grades through our PowerSchool Parent Portal. Please visit this page for instructions on creating a parent account. Please note that students in grades K-3 receive standards-based report cards, so teachers generally do not maintain grade and assignment information in PowerSchool for these younger students.

Notification Service: Cascade School District contracts with School Messenger to send out

phone, email and text messages. Information you might receive via School Messenger includes emergency notifications, school closures, low lunch account balances, absence alerts, and important school announcements. By default, phone numbers and email addresses provided on school registration forms are used for notifications. Parents are encouraged to set their own contact preferences by clicking on the applications icon (circled in red) in the upper-right area of the PowerSchool Parent Portal. If your phone number, email address, or other contact information changes, please also notify the school office to be sure that our records are updated accordingly.

Getting Involved

There are a number of ways for parents to get involved: 
  • The Parent Teacher Organization (PTO) actively supports our schools. 
  • Many of our elementary teachers rely on parent helpers for special events or ongoing support. Please contact your child's teacher to find out about volunteer opportunities.
  • For Fathers, we have a Watch DOGS (Dad's of Great Students) program. Please contact our Principal, Diana Wold for more information.
