Parent Portals - Communication at Leigh

Leigh uses different online tools for school communication and to store your student's data/information.
  • Aeries is the holder of permanent records such as attendance, transcripts, demographic data, test scores, and more. At the 6-wk, 12-wk and Semester mark, these grades can be found in Aeries.
  • Canvas is the instructional tool that Leigh is using to disseminate curriculum and instruction to students. It is also where our students are submitting assignments and receiving updates to graded assignments. 
  • ParentSquare is for email communication from the school.
  • Naviance is for college & career information.
Learn how to install and use each parent portal (including a Parent QuickQuide for Canvas). This link can be found by clicking on the Parents tab at the top of the website and then clicking on Parent Portals in the dropdown. You can click on the buttons below to login to each tool directly.

Tutorial is a 30-minute period that is part of the instructional day; students are required to sign into tutorial by scanning their Student ID card. During tutorial, students are to attend one of their current classes for support. Students must treat tutorial with the same respect as class time, including respecting all school/classroom rules and staying on task. All students are required to attend tutorial.

The purpose of tutorial is for students to receive help from teachers or peer tutors, get make-up work after or before an absence, utilize the College and Career Center, and work on schoolwork. Some examples of schoolwork include homework, studying, reviewing, reading, collaborative work, quiz/test retakes, and make-up work.

Students with a D or F in any class after the 6 week grading period will be held to the tutorial schedule below for intervention, and to get extra help in the class(es) with low grades. Students will be tracked by Counselors and/or Administrators to ensure they are attending. Assignment to these tutorials will be based on the grades at the end of each 6 week grading period.

Mr. Wall, assistant principal responsible for overseeing attendance, shared information on the updated tardy policy on Aug 14. The goal is to reduce tardiness by 50% from last year. The following changes around tardies are now in place: 

  • When a student is marked tardy during a school day, the student and parent/guardian will receive a “tardy notification” email by me after school. This is in an effort to clearly communicate when a tardy has been recorded and provide instructions on how to clear a tardy if it was incorrectly marked. 
  • For every two tardies a student accrues, they will be required to attend a 30 minute tardy recovery (previously known as “detention”) session before or after school. Students will be restricted from participating in school sports, dances, and other after school activities until all tardy recovery hours are completed. 
  • All students with no tardies over an extended period of time will be entered into raffles for front of the line lunch passes, free entry into sports events, free pair of tickets to dances, and more! 

If a student needs a locker, please stop by the Main office starting Monday, August 22.  Ms. Ramirez will provide lockers before school, tutorial, lunch or after school.  
Any questions, come to the Main office.
