  • Home Access Will Be Unavailable

    1st semesters ends on Friday, December 21st. Please note below the dates HAC will be closed for grades to be posted:


    Turned Off: Friday, December 14, 2018 at 4:00 pm

    Turned On: Friday, January 11, 2019 at 4:00 pm


    Why is Home Access Center (HAC) inaccessible?

    · All grades must be electronically processed and checked for errors and incompletes.

     · Turning off HAC while grades are checked for accuracy ensures that families don’t see a grade before it has been verified as correct.

     · Since teachers submit their grades at different times, if HAC is left on, students and families become concerned that something is wrong if some grades appear but others are missing in HAC.

     · Deactivating HAC as grades are submitted over several weeks and then turning it back on once all grades are submitted limit confusion while guaranteeing that all students have access to their grades at the same time.
