PRMS Links

Parent Portal (from PowerSchool)
 
Parent Portal allows parents and students to login to the student records system at school and see grades, attendance and teacher comments. A username and password are required for access. This is usually given to parents and students at the beginning of the school year. It can also be requested from the school office but can not be given out over the telephone. 

ACORN Parent Portal Fee Payment System
Parent Portal also has a fee payment system called ACORN that is available once you login using your parent login. Look for the link to pay fees on the main Parent Portal page. You can use debit or charge cards; to use cash, checks or money orders pay in the main office. Note that school fees will be prioritized for payment automatically by the system. If you wish to pay a specific fee you may need to come to the school office. 

Parent Portal Family Account
The Power School parent login system allows parents with more than one student enrolled in Lexington Two to have only one login for all their children. A parent account can register multiple students and access their information under that account. Students will use their individual logins to the portal.

PowerSchool Registration & Student Records
Need school updates? Keep your student's contact information up to date. PRMS uses an automated calling system to send out important information or alert parents if there is an emergency. In order for this to work we need correct contact information in our record system. If you have changed addresses or phone numbers you can login to our new PowerSchool Registration system with your Snapcode which is given out at the beginning of the year with schedule information. (Note this is also called InfoSnap.)
