Parent Portal Information

The Synergy Parent Portal is now available – this portal will give you access to your child (or children)’s current grades, report cards, attendance and more.

You will need an activation key, provided by school staff, to create your account to access the portal. Activation keys will only be provided via email, due to COVID-19.

Please contact the school site (only one site, if you have multiple children in the district), to request your activation key. School staff will be asking you questions to confirm your identity, to ensure we are not giving access to someone who is not the parent/legal guardian of the student(s).

Once school staff have a valid email address, they will send you a test email, while on the phone with you. Once confirmed that you have received the “test” email, they will then email the activation key and directions. School site staff will provide support as needed. If they are unable to assist you, they will collect your contact information and get back to you ASAP with a resolution

Big legal win for GMCS students

GMCS proved funding for school buildings has been insufficient and the courts agreed. Our GMCS School Board has fought hard for our students on many issues, even if it means having to go to court to get fairness for your children. Their efforts have and will result in more equity and 10’s of millions more dollars to create a better educational system for McKinley County.

Many of our students eligible for the Pandemic-EBT have changed residences over the past few weeks and need to update their address in order to receive their funds.
