Parents - Powerschool (Grades):

PowerSchool Parent Portal Access Tips

Here are some quick bullets about the PowerSchool Parent Portal:

 

Unless you have changed your username after August 12, 2019, the username is the email address that is associated to the parent account. The log of invalid logins that we are seeing are typically parent accounts that are trying to use something other than an email address as the username.

 

Recently users have been denied access and it is determined that they are not using the correct URL. Please make sure that you are going to http://powerschool.lovejoyisd.net . If you see Welcome to Unified Classroom, you are on the wrong site. This is another PowerSchool product that we do not have a subscription as it duplicates Google Classroom.

 

Remember that the mobile app is only a tool for updates on assignments, grades, and attendance. Typically to access the Enrollment Forms, Absence Reason Excuses, GPA Information, and the Random Drug Testing Forms you must use a tablet, laptop or desktop and the URL above. From a mobile phone, you can use your browser and go to the URL above; however, once logged in it is difficult to navigate.



Parents - Google Classroom:

Guardian email invitations will be sent to the email address on file in PowerSchool. Guardian summary emails list upcoming, overdue, and missing assignments. HERE is a Sample Guardian Email Summary. Summaries do not provide access to class materials or assignment details. Your student has full access to this information on their Google Classroom account. 

  • If your student needs help navigating Google Classroom and Classroom Calendars, click HERE for the student tips page.
  • If you do not see the parent invite to Guardian Email Summaries, contact any one of your  student’s current teachers (or the campus Library Media Specialist) to have the request resent to the email you provided in PowerSchool.
