PowerSchool Parent Portal Overview

Our PowerSchool Parent Portal is available for students in grades 6-12 and their parents and guardians of ALL grade levels. It is a confidential, web-based application that allows students and parents to view current and historical grades as well as class assignments and attendance. The purpose of this tool is to improve communication between students, teachers, and parents.

To access the parent portal, parents and guardians will need to create a registered account using AccessID and AccessPassword assigned to each student. Multiple students can be added to one PowerSchool Parent Portal  account.  All guardians can create separate PowerSchool Parent portal accounts for their students using the same AccessID and AccessPassword.

Account information (AccessID and AccessPassword) is included on all high school report cards and progress reports.  This information was also sent in the letter mailed to all students after schools closure in March.  Please contact your child’s school secretary if you don’t have AccessID and AccessPassword for your child so you can set up a PowerSchool Parent Portal account.    

Click on this link and follow the directions to set up your account: For quick access, you may wish to add this link to your "favorites" on your home computer. 

Please remember the importance of privacy and security when accessing grades via the portal. Usernames and passwords should not be shared. Below, you will find more detailed information, including instructions for accessing the parent portal and answers to frequently asked questions.

If, after reviewing this material, you are still experiencing problems registering or accessing your account, please contact our IT Help Desk between 8 AM - 4 PM (Monday-Friday) at 860-832-4692 or 860-801-1223 (English/Spanish). Additionally, you can fill out our form requesting technical assistance at any time and someone will follow up with you as soon as possible.

There is an app one can download for the iPhone. However, you MUST FIRST create an account through the website and connect the student's access id and password there before you can connect the app to your account. There is a separate access id and password for every child. The district code is WDFH.
