Keeping in Touch with JPS

Imperative to our students’ success is communication with  families. Justice Page Middle School communicates information to families in a number of ways:

Parent Portal:

  • The Parent Portal gives parents and guardians access to grades, transcripts, attendance and your child’s class schedule.
  • We recommend families check the portal at least once per week together to stay on top of student performance and ask teachers any questions you have.
  • Please make sure you are signed up to use the Portal:


  • Used for periodic important announcements
  • Sent as needed, via email, phone, and/or text
  • To receive communications from the school, you need to have your preferences set up correctly. Log in to Under your name in the upper right corner, click Preferences. This will display any phone numbers and email addresses associated with your student(s). You can change your preferences for each individual contact method, or by message type.
  • If you do not yet have a School Messenger account, you will need to sign up and associate the account with your student. Be sure to use the same email address you use for the Parent Portal.
