2008/2009 School Year

January 15, 2009 – Track Your Child’s Academic Progress Online Through Fast Direct:

At the start of the school year, we began using an online system for grading and reporting called Fast Direct. The service we purchased allows parents to view their child’s progress online as teachers update the grades from week to week. Parents must register on the website at in order to gain access to their child’s academic data. The data you view is kept 100% confidential and only accessible to the parents who have a personal login ID and password. Please feel free to call our school office if you have any questions. You can register online yourself or the school office can help you with the activation process if you prefer.
