PARENT LOGIN INFORMATION

Communication between parents, teachers, and the administration at Grey Nun Academy is critical to the success of your child's education. At Grey Nun Academy RenWeb provides a single interface for internal communications and student homework.

 

SCHOOL CALENDAR

Parents receive a tentative yearly calendar in January for the following school year. The finalized yearly calendar will be published in the Family Directory. Updates can be viewed in the ParentsWeb (RenWeb) Calendar Area and a monthly calendar at greynunacademy.org.


DIRECTORY

ParentsWeb (RenWeb) contains the Family Directory published each year (we do not send home copies, parents must print their directory). This Directory contains the names of current students, family addresses, phone numbers and email addresses. This provides private information and should be used solely for school purposes.


PARENT/TEACHER CONFERENCES

Formal conference times are scheduled twice a year, in the fall and spring. These conferences give both parents and teachers the opportunity to discuss a student’s progress. Conferences can also be arranged at additional times if necessary.

Students in Lower School grades 3-5 and Middle School grades 6-8 attend the parent/teacher conference with their parent(s).

APPOINTMENTS

Dialogue between parents, teachers, staff, and administrators is extremely important. If a parent would like to speak with any school personnel, an appointment should be arranged by note, email, or phone call to the main office, to Mary Ann Turnbull.
