Students & Parents
Hinton School is using an 100% cloud-based web filtering solution called Securly. Securly filters all student issued Chromebooks while at school, home or on the go. Learn more at www.securly.com - External Link
Let Powerschool email you grades and attendance reports on a regular basis (Weekly, Monthly, Etc...). If you have the PowerSchool mobile app installed on your phone, let PowerSchool give you notifications.
On a browser such as Chrome, Safari, or Firefox, log into PowerSchool and then click on the Email Notification icon in the left panel. Decide what information you'd like to receive, any additional email addresses you want the information sent to, and how often to send!
When you install the PowerSchool mobile app on your phone, you will be asked if push notifications should be allowed for the PowerSchool app. Hopefully, you selected Yes/OK for that setting. If you did not or are not sure, go into your phone's settings and find the PowerSchool app icon, tap on it, tap on Notifications, then turn them on.
A notification will "pop up" on your phone for any event for your student, such as being marked absent or tardy, turning in an assignment, receiving an assignment grade, and several others.
Parents can now view their kids’ activity across educational sites and time sinks, in-school, and at-home across all of their school-owned devices. All of this is delivered via beautifully designed dashboards and e-mail reports!
Customize what your student can do and see on their school-owned devices while at home. Allow or deny access to specific sites and categories.

Part of our 1to1 initiative (DLE) at Hinton School will be periodically collecting data around technology. This will provide the 1to1 committee, administration and school board an ongoing snapshot of all technology uses and impacts in our district. Each building has a different link. Please click the correct link for your situation. If you have students in multiple grade levels, please take the survey once for each grade level they are in. The survey will take approximately 5 minutes for parents and 10 minutes for students.
