Student Portal

Students can access school information such as their current schedule, test scores, and recent attendance through the student portal. (This is NOT where students get to classes, that is done through Google).

To log in, students will need to know their email address and their Student Badge ID. If you have problems logging in, please contact our main office at 507-328-4440.
