April E-blast 2019

Dear All,

Spring is almost here! We will be at the end of the year before you know it! What a pleasure to have so many awesome children and families as a part of the community. Thank you for choosing Legacy Academy!

Report Card Update

We will no longer be printing report cards. Infinite Campus Parent Portal allows parents to see information related to their student(s) such as household information, attendance, grades, assignments, and behavior. In order for parents to log in, they must have a username and password. To receive your username, email the password you want to use that is at least ten characters long to Emily Klein at emily.klein@legacyk8.org.  The parent portal link is on the Legacy homepage.
