The Ascender Parent Portal gives Melissa ISD parents and guardians the option to receive attendance alerts by email or text message throughout the school year. As a parent or guardian, you can control whether or not you receive daily attendance alerts for each student in your household.
In-Person Learners: If your student does not attend school on campus, you will receive an attendance alert saying that your student was marked absent for the day.
Online Learners: For students learning from home via Schoology, attendance reporting is delayed by one day to allow for asynchronous student engagement.
You will not receive an attendance alert by email or text message if your student is counted absent, but you will still be able to log in to the Parent Portal to monitor your student’s attendance.
