The Parent Portal for PowerSchool has some great features, and it will only take a few minutes to get started:
1. Go to the Cascade Schools Parent Login Page.
2. Click on the "Create Account" button.
3. Create your account. Your username and password do not have to match your previous PowerSchool login or password.
4. Link your new account to your children. For "Student Name", enter the first name. To insure that your children's information is protected, an Access ID and Access Password are entered to associate each of your children with your account. If you do not have this information, please call Chris Hinze at 208-630-6057 x2590 or email at email@example.com. Finally, select your relationship to the child from the drop-down.

The PowerSchool parent portal also allows Parents to review messages and set their contact preferences for our automated messaging service, School Messenger. These preferences determine how parents will be contacted with automated phone and email messages for attendance, lunch account balances, emergency notifications, school announcements, etc. Click on the icon (upper-right part of window) and select "Contact Manager". The Contact Manager screen comes up on the "messages" tab, which lists messages sent over the last 30 days. The "Contacts" tab allows parents to edit the phone numbers, email addresses and preferences for each message type. In this way, parents can choose to be contacted in ways that work best for them, and alter these settings to accommodate changing work schedules, email accounts, phone numbers, etc.
