Parents of students attending high, middle or primary schools in Sulphur Springs will soon be able to track their children’s grades, attendance, discipline records and communicate with their students’ teachers in a limited format through a new web-based tool.

“Douglas and Sulphur Springs Elementary School already had their Family Access date last Friday during required parent meetings on their campuses. If you missed that opportunity there will be another opportunity at a later date,” noted Sulphur Springs Independent School District Director of Human Resources and Communications Rusty Harden.

Meetings are scheduled on designated days from 8:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. next week in the library at each campus so parents can get their ID and login information for Family Access. Parents of high school students can get access information for those students Tuesday, Sept. 17. Staff will be on hand at Travis, Lamar and Bowie Primary campuses Wednesday, Sept. 18 to provide parents with the needed access information. Middle school parents can drop by the school Thursday, Sept. 19. No appointment is needed; parents simply visit their child’s campus library on the designated day between 8:30 a.m. and 3:30 p.m. to obtain the information needed to login.

“If you are a parent or guardian of a student on one of these campuses, this will allow you to sit down with someone in person to learn how to log on to the Family Access site. You will only have to meet one time to gain access to all of your children's records,” Harden explained in a press release Wednesday afternoon.

Parents who have children on different campuses will only have to go to one campus to gain access to all of their children’s information.

Harden also said parents who have “met with someone before at Douglas or Sulphur Springs Elementary School do not have to get access again.”

Questions about Family Access should be directed to the staff members in the child’s campus library on the designated Family Access information distribution day. Parents are asked to please refrain from calling the student’s campus.

“If you have any questions, come on the day that is designated for your child's campus,” encourages Harden. “If you are not able to attend on the appropriate date and time, you will be able at a future date to contact the campus for access.”
