Parent and Student Announcements
Important!! - ALL users need to update their Gradebook / Parent Profiles information!!
Starting in the 2017 -2018 school year, all Leon County schools will have a new messaging system called Blackboard Mass Notification. Schools will use this to communicate important information to parents and students.
Phone / E-mail / Texts / Social Media / Website
This system will allow information to be sent to individuals using a variety of the methods above based on the end user’s preferences. One of the best benefits is that you can select how and when you receive communications and can easily unsubscribe at any time directly within any message received from LCS using this system.
This system will replace our old “listserv” system in the very near future
In order for you to be able to continue to receive messages, emails, and/or texts, from your child’s school
you will need to provide your cell phone number (for texts) and your primary e-mail address.
Parent Portal Announcements
Parent Portal Letters
Parents should receive a Parent Portal letter from their child's school. You will receive one per child. In that letter is the login credential for the primary contact listed at the school (typically the mother). The login credentials at the top in the grey boxed area are for the parent to log into the Parent Portal (Click the login box at the top right below the red arrows) and check their child's grades.
Important: These credentials should NOT be shared with your child ever or you compromise the security of your acct and ability to access and monitor their grades as they can lock you out of your acct if they have the password. All students have their OWN separate credentials that allow them to see their grades. Students log into ClassLink and open the Gradebook tile to see their grades, they should not use or need parent login credentials.
The password printed on the letter is the original password issued to the parent by the school. It is NOT the current password that you might have changed it to as passwords are encrypted and can't be seen by anyone, including the school district. If you have forgotten your password and need a reset, please contact email@example.com
DON'T FORGET TO SET YOUR PARENT PORTAL PASSWORD RECOVERY!!!
In order to ensure you do NOT get locked out of the Parent Portal system, please make sure that you set up an e-mail recovery as "primary" in your profile once you log into your Parent Portal. This ParentPortal Guide will help walk you through how to setup your password recovery settings. If you do not set this up, the "FORGOT PASSWORD" link will NOT work and will not send you the recovery e-mail to reset your password.
Not Getting your e-mail Notifications?!!!
In order to ensure you get any e-mail subscriptions, please make sure that you set up an e-mail as "primary" in your profile once you log into your Parent Portal. You then will need to go tto the Notification section and select the notifications you wish to recieve for 2017-18.
Locked out of you Parent Portal Acct or forgot your password?
If your Parent Portal account is not accessible, either because you are locked out or says the user does not exist and you forgot to setup your password recovery e-mail in your profile, please contact the Parent Portal helpdesk @ Portalhelp@leonschools.net or call 487-7524 for assistance getting your passowrd reset.
Need a Parent Portal acct? Want a 2nd one for other parent?
