Parent Portal Directions

PowerSchool Student/Parent Portal
Grades 2-12

Web Address: https://sis.henrico.k12.va.us/public/home.html

PowerSchool Parent Portal is a powerful, easy-to-use, secure communication tool connecting teachers, parents, and students. Online access to grades, attendance, and assignments makes it easier for parents, teachers, and students to accurately monitor, identify, and accelerate student progress.

Any parent who created a Portal account last year, including during last year’s course recommendation window, will continue to use that same account. User names and passwords have not changed on any parent accounts created last school year.

Portal Features:

Grades and Attendance. This feature displays comprehensive information about student grades and attendance for the current term. **Please note: You may see a discrepancy between the Class Attendance and Day Attendance values. Day Attendance values are from the school’s Attendance Office and are considered a part of the student’s official record.

Grade History. This feature displays student quarter and semester grades for the current term.

Teacher Comments. This feature displays any comment(s) that a teacher has attached to a report card grade.

Class Registration. This feature provides parents of rising 6th-12th graders the ability to manage course requests during the school’s course recommendation window.

Transportation. This feature displays morning and afternoon student bus route information.
