School Messenger ~ Attendance Calls

As a safety precaution, the automated attendance calls sent when your child is absent from school will now be sent earlier in the day.  Starting Monday, November 3, attendance calls for elementary and middle school students will be pushed out at 10:45 a.m.
Parents are encouraged to review the telephone number that School Messenger currently uses for attendance calls.  The first phone number in the student information system is the default setting for receiving attendance calls.  Because that number might be a home number, parents might want to change the School Messenger setting to a daytime cell phone number.
For technical assistance, please email Bethanne Bradshaw at bethannebradshaw@spsk12.net

Home Access Center

Home Access Center

Starting in September 2014, Suffolk Public Schools will be using a different gradebook program.

Home Access Center (HAC) is an online application which allows parents and guardians to view student academic information and communicate with teachers. The resource provides 24/7 access in real-time.

Access to HAC:

  • The district will generate user accounts.
  • Login information will be communicated at the beginning of the 2014-2015 school year to those parents that sent a valid email address at the end of last school year.
  • The login screen will be accessible from the SPS website.  That date will be announced here.

Link here for details on the new HOME ACCESS CENTER, which will allow parents to access their children’s grades.

Elephant’s Fork parents received an email from Mr. Skinner on September 11, 2014 explaining how to activate their Home Access Center account.  

Parents who did NOT receive an email must fill out the form below and return it to the school so that an account can be generated for them.
