      Student Attendance

      Regular school attendance is incredibly important to a student’s academic achievement.  Based on SC state law, a student is considered truant if he/she has more than 3 consecutive or 5 total unexcused absences.  Please see the attached flyer for more details about the importance of regular school attendance.


      The Parent Portal is a powerful, easy-to-use, secure communication tool connecting teachers, parents and students through the District 5 website. Using Pearson’s PowerSchool student information system, the Parent Portal allows collaboration to improve student achievement. Up-to-date, online access to grades, homework, attendance, and assignments makes it easier for parents, teachers and students to accurately monitor, identify and accelerate student progress.  An account and password can be given to a parent or legal guardian by visiting the front office and presenting a valid identification. 

      Accessing Parent Portal

      On the left hand side of our school's home page, click on Quick Links > Parent Portal > Enter Username and Password.  If you have not used Parent Portal you will need to visit the school to pick up your assigned Login information.  If you are not sure if you have an account set up or questions, please call 803-476-4840
