Welcome SPS Parents!
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.|
The parent portal, ParentVUE, 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 ParentVUE 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.

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.

We are excited to be able to offer our students this opportunity to receive help with their academic achievement and to benefit from the enrichment activities and take advantage of extended library hours. We will have enrichment instructors and certified teachers available to work with your child from 3:30-5:30 pm on Mondays through Thursdays every week except on days when there will be mandatory K-8 staff meetings or bad weather days.
Your child will be riding the late bus home, walking back to the dorm, or walking home after each session. Your child will also be eligible to receive a healthy snack.
