Changes in the Grading Period

Parents/Guardians may view the current report card in Home Access Center (HAC) which is accessible from the Suffolk Public Schools’ and building websites. All guardians have access to academic performance in HAC with an account that was created by the division. Parents that do not know their HAC credentials must contact the school their child attends for support in gaining access to the account. Additionally, all students have been provided with an account to access their academic performance in HAC. Students will use their SPS computer credentials to access their HAC account.

Take 5 Steps to Be Ready, Should Snow Fall This Week

With snow predicted this week, please take these steps now to be prepared.

1) Update your students about where to go when they get off the bus, should schools close early.

2) Remember, when schools are opening under a 1- or 2-hour delay, bus pickups begin 1 or 2 hours later than normal. Before-school care opens under the same delay, and no breakfast is served on days with delayed openings.

3) Be reminded the YMCA after-school program remains open until 6 p.m. when school dismisses early. No YMCA childcare is offered at schools, when schools are closed; however enrolled children may be brought to the main Suffolk YMCA on Godwin Boulevard for childcare on those days at no additional cost.

4) Make sure we know how you’d prefer to receive updates. The best and easiest way to identify your preferences is to log into

You will need the correct email address you have associated with your staff or student information.
