Your logon information will be sent directly to your e-mail account. If you have not previously entered your e-mail address in your Skyward account this is not an option. In this case you may request this information in-person at your child's school's main office or guidance office.
 
6. I'm having difficulty logging in. Is my account information correct? The default login convention is the first five characters of your last name followed by the first three characters of your first name and three zeros. If your last name is only three or four characters long, you will have to substitute the five character convention with spaces. For example, if your name is James Bond, the log on convention is BOND JAM000. If your last name only has three characters, for instance Casper Boo, the log on will be BOO CAS000.
 
7. Why am I receiving a message about a certificate? In order to ensure a secure connection between parents and guardians and the Skyward grade book, we have implemented the same security used by websites that accept credit card information. If you look at the web address, you will see “https.” If you are receiving the error message about a certificate, please ensure you are using the newest version of your web browser.
