  • Student Attendance

    School attendance is very important. In an attempt to have your students attendance as accurate as possible, Houghtaling Elementary has recently moved to an automated attendance system. If your child is not in school, and you have not contacted the office as to why, you will receive the message. All attendance is flagged as unexcused until parent contact is made. If you receive a message, please contact the office right away and the attendance will be updated. Please note - all unexcused absenceses are reported to the state for truancy.

  • Powerschool Parent Portal

    How do I sign up? How do I add all my kids under one log in? Look at the above tabs under "For Parents" & click on Power School Parent Portal. This will give you detailed instructions. Once you have signed everyone up, then you can start going directly to the "Parent Portal" Icon at the top of the screen next to the Menu icon. This will take you directly to the log in page everytime. Hope this clears up any confusion.
