Welcome SPS Parents!

Upcoming Indian Education Committee Meeting, Wednesday, June 16 @ 5:30 PM (ZOOM)


The High School is in the process of adopting a new Earth Science Textbook. This new adoption will engage students to think like a scientist, act like a scientist, and solve problems like a scientist. We invite you to review the textbook and leave any feedback.

Parent Portal


The parent portal, will give access to near real-time grades, attendance and other data about your child or children. You will be able to see records for all of your children with this single log-in.

You can access your parent portal through the internet and through your smart phone. A free mobile app is available for the iPhone or Android device.  For more information, click here.

Parent Involvement

Shonto Preparatory School in partnership with parents, can directly affect a child’s academic achievement. Every quarter the school will send academic and attendance progress reports home to parents. During the 1 st , 2 nd , and 3 rd quarters, a mid-quarter progress report will also be sent home. Parents/guardians are welcome to contact the school during school business hours, 8 am to 4 pm. The parent can also call to schedule an appointment with their child’s teacher during that teacher’s prep period, or to arrange a meeting after school hours to meet with all of a student’s teachers.

Parents are expected to


Maintain a reliable phone number listed with the school at all times


Attend scheduled appointments scheduled with the school


Attend regularly scheduled parent-teacher conferences


Help enforce school attendance and student discipline standards


Participate in the school Parent Advisory Committee


Build a strong parental involvement through coordination, technical assistance, and other support by implementing effective activities to improve their child’s academic performance.


In order to ensure that we can communicate with families regarding their student, or in case of an emergency, it is essential that families keep their emergency contact information up to date. Please call the school with any changes in your contact information.

Parent / Student Handbook

The Student and Parent Handbook, developed in partnership with school administrators, teachers, parents and students, is distributed to each student. Parents and students are required to sign and return the "Student & Parent Handbook Acknowledgement" page to your child's teacher. It is important that you and your student become familiar with the content in the handbook.

SPS Parent Committees

Thank you for volunteering to attend our Parent Committees. These committees will be an integral part of implementing our district’s strategic plan by analyzing how we communicate with families and how we can improve our student’s success through partnerships with parents and community. Our hope is that we will have productive, honest conversations about these topics and use them to plan, make recommendations and implement positive change across the district.

Meetings will be held in the K-8 Library for P.A.C and HS Cafetorium for I.E.C.  Snacks will be provided at every meeting.

PAC meetings are scheduled every second Tuesday of the month at 5:30 PM.

IEC meetings are scheduled every second Wednesday of the month at 5:30PM.
