Reporting to parents mid and end of year:

This year our reports will be sent out digitally through our SMS (Student Management System) called Linc-Ed. You will be given instructions on how to access the report at the Student Learning Conference. Parents can then keep tabs at any time on their child’s progress, attendance, school account through their log in on Linc-Ed. Teachers are currently writing the reports which will be ready for you at the end of week 9 this term.
