The Parent Portal is a web based resource that allows parents to connect and receive vital information about their child. This includes the ability for them to review their child's grades, attendance and class schedules.
You must go to one of your child's schools and request a new Parent Portal account. You will need to provide the office with proper identification about yourself and your child.
You may log into the Parent Portal via the District website or you can go directly to https://thomaston.powerschool.com. Once you are on the District website, there will be a PowerSchool link located in the "Parents" menu section of the website. You must have a valid Parent Portal account and password to log into the system.
No. All any student that you have custodial rights for will be attached to one account.
Once you are successfully logged in, you can change your password at any time by selecting "Account Preferences" in the upper right-hand corner of the webpage. Click on the pencil next to your password. You will have the option to enter your old password along with a new password. You will need to logoff and back on in order to use the new password that was just set.
Once you are logged in with the original e-mail address, you can change your e-mail address by clicking on "Account Preferences" in the upper right-hand corner of the webpage. You will have the option of updating your e-mail address. Simply enter the new valid e-mail address in the space provided. You will need to logoff and back on in order to use the new e-mail address that was just set.

Once you are logged into parent connect you are presented with the current overall grade for each of your child’s classes. In order to view the individual assignment grades, simply double click on the overall score and you will be presented with the individual assignments for that class. You will need to go through each of the classes if you wish to see them. There is no way at the present time to view them all at once.
Usernames are not case sensitive but passwords are case sensitive. If you have a capital letter in your password when it is created, then you will always have to type it as a capital letter until it is modified.
Sometimes the emails wind up in the spam folder. Please check your spam folder and mark the emails as not spam in order for them to be allowed through. If you are still not receiving emails from you child's school, please contact us at email@example.com
Grades for class assignments during the current semester: Talk with your child first. If you still have questions, you may call your child’s teacher or email him/her. General attendance questions should be directed to the school office.
No. As long as you protect your user name and password, others will not be able to see your child's information.
Yes, PowerSchool allows for multiple parent accounts to be created per child. Therefore, both parents can have their own username and password that is linked with the Student's Access Key.
