It is very important for parents of all students but especially 6th and 7th grade parents to be sure they know their login information for home access. Parents of 6th and 7th grade students will need this login information to select courses online beginning in January 2020. If parents use their child’s information they will not be able to access the teacher recommendations and to select courses. If you do not know your parent login information please contact the hac@parklandsd.org for help. Thank you!
