Parents & Tech

We encourage all of our SMS parents and guardians to be connected to school in as many ways as possible! Connections can be traditional such as talking to your kids every night, calling or emailing teachers for updates. Connections can also be digital. Check out the information below on your options for digitally connecting to school!

ParentSquare
ParentSquare is the district and school communication portal. This is a two-way communication portal. Please reach out to us when you have questions about SCSD2 or SMS. 

If you've already accepted your ParentSquare invitation and would like to customize the timing and method of notifications, please check out this link.


If you haven't accepted your ParentSquare invitation, please do so ASAP.


Contact Mrs. Hammons (812-752-8926 or khammons@scsd2.k12.in.us) if you have any questions.



 
Harmony Family Access (HFA)
This is the portal to your child's grade, attendance, and discipline records. All parents and guardians are required to create an HFA account at registration. If you have any questions about your account, contact the building principal.

Canvas
This is the portal to your child's classroom experience. When you create a parent account you can see each of your child's course details such as agendas, assignments, submitted work, discussions, and more.  Check out these instructions for creating a Canvas Observer account and for linking your student's account to your own!
