Parent Resources - Power School



Grades and Attendance: Parents can view their children's attendance and assignments/grades through our PowerSchool Parent Portal.


Notification Service: Cascade School District contracts with School Messenger to send out phone, email and text messages. Information you might receive via School Messenger includes emergency notifications, school closures, low lunch account balances absence alerts, and important school announcements. By default, phone numbers and email addresses provided on school registration forms are used for notifications. Parents are encouraged to set their own contact preferences by clicking on the applications icon (circled in red) in the upper-right area of the PowerSchool Parent Portal. If your phone number, email address, or other contact information changes, please also notify the school office to be sure that our records are updated accordingly.




The Parent Portal for PowerSchool has some great features, and it will only take a few minutes to get started:

1. Go to the Cascade Schools Parent Login Page.

Finally, select your relationship to the child from the drop-down.

If you do not have this information, please call our school secretary at 208-630-6057 x2400.

If you have any problems creating the account, please call Angel Carrion at 208-630-6057 x2590.

The Power School parent portal also allows Parents to review messages and set their contact preferences for our automated messaging service, School Messenger. These preferences determine how parents will be contacted with automated phone and email messages for attendance, lunch account balances, emergency notifications, school announcements, etc. Click on the icon (upper-right part of window) and select "Contact Manager". The Contact Manager screen comes up on the "messages" tab, which lists messages sent over the last 30 days. The "Contacts" tab allows parents to edit the phone numbers, email addresses and preferences for each message type. In this way, parents can choose to be contacted in ways that work best for them, and alter these settings to accommodate changing work schedules, email accounts, phone numbers, etc.
