4 - PARENT-TEACHER CONFERENCES

Parent-Teacher conferences for the fall trimester will be taking place as originally scheduled during the week of October 19 - 23. We want to use this opportunity to inform parents of their children’s progress up to this point. Please return the appointment form (LINK HERE) to your child’s homeroom teacher by October 2nd to ensure your reserved time. If you are unable to meet at any of the times listed, please make arrangements with your child’s homeroom teacher to set up a different time. 

Please be reminded that, according to our COVID-19 Health and Safety Policies, parents should refrain from entering the school building to pick up their children. If you need to enter the school building, wear a mask and contact the reception office before entering. If you are coming for a scheduled conference with the homeroom teacher, there is no need to contact the reception office but please make sure to wear a mask. Please also wash your hands when you enter the building.

5 - FAMILY PORTAL Accounts (Also know as ParentsWeb / Renweb) 

  • KIU Academy uses FACTS (Renweb) Family Portal, a private and secure parents’ portal that allows parents to view academic information specific to their children, while protecting their children’s information from others. You may view your child’s grades, homework, as well as other useful school information.
  • Starting Fall 2020, all NEW parent accounts can be created by the parents themselves. Please click on the link below to view the instructions:
  • If you already have an account, there is no need to create a new one.
  • If you forgot the log in information for your account, please contact the school office.

 

Thank you for your support of the school.
