Parent Portal Now Features Teacher Grade Books
November 12, 2013
I am writing to inform you of a new opportunity for improved home-school communication. As of today, we are opening the grade book portion of the parent portal in eSchoolData for students in grades 6-12. You will now be able to view your student’s grades in a more efficient and convenient manner. I have asked secondary faculty to upload grade information at least every two weeks.
It is our hope that enhanced home-school communication will allow for greater collaboration and fewer surprises. The grade book portion of our system can be accessed through the parent portal at the following address
https://esd-parentportal.mhric.org/login.aspx. If you have not previously created an account, you will need to complete the registration process first. I look forward to receiving feedback on this new communication tool. If you would like to learn more about the portal, please visit the eSchoolData Parent Portal section of our website.
Please feel free to contact me with any questions and/or concerns at email@example.com.
Paul Finch, SuperintendentInterested in Receiving Text Message Alerts from the School District?
If you are not already receiving text messages from Red Hook schools but would like to, here's what you need to do:
1. Make sure your student's school office has a current cell phone number on file for you in your parent/guardian contact file.
2. Enter the short code of 68453 in the recipient field or the "to" field of your text message, and the word "OPTIN" in the message body.
3. Assuming your cell phone number is already on file with us, you are all set. Please be advised that this service is voluntary and that the school district does not pay for text message charges that may be incurred by you for sending or receiving text messages.
Registering a New Student
If you would like to register a new student for the 2013-14 school year, you MUST contact the Registrar at 845-758-2241 ext. 4719 to schedule an appointment to meet with her.
