School Announcements
Parent Portal to View Student Grades Now Open
Parents and guardians: Our grade book portal is now open for you to check your child's grades. If your child went to JM last year, and you created an account, that account should still work. If your child did not attend JM last year, you will need to create a new account. Here is the link to the directions for creating that account.
To create the account, you will need your child's Access ID and Access password. You must pick this up ​in person, and you must have identification. Our interpreter, Mrs. Tobar, will have these information sheets, and she will verify parents' ID information. We cannot give this information over the telephone or send it home with students.
Order your JMHS class ring
JUNIORS:  On Tuesday, September 16, you may place an order for your Jordan-Matthews High School Class Ring during the lunches and in the evening from 5:00 – 7:00 PM in the school’s cafeteria.  Parents are invited to attend the evening ordering session.  A variety of ring styles, stones, and design options are available to you so you can customize your ring.  Information packets with the catalog and price sheet were distributed in a class meeting and extra packets are in the school’s main office.

PowerSchool Parent Portal Registration

Jordan-Matthews High School is happy to announce that parents can begin registering for the PowerSchool Parent Portal today.  The PowerSchool Parent Portal is a website that will allow parents to see their student's grades as they are updated by teachers.

Parents are asked to complete a parent verification process before accessing their student's grade and schedule information via the Parent Portal.  This is a one-time process and need only be completed in subsequent years if families enroll new students within Chatham County Schools.  The parent verification process helps to ensure the safety and security of all student grade and class schedule information as required by federal law.  

The parent verification process requires three steps:

  1. Parents are invited to download, and complete, the parent verification form from the Chatham County Schools homepage located at: http://www.chatham.k12.nc.us/.  This form is also available from our school's front office if you do not have access to a printer or the Internet.
  2. Parents are then asked to present a separate completed form at each school where families have students attending a Chatham County School.
  3. Parents will need to present some form of photo identification at each school to ensure the safety and security of student information.  For parents who are unwilling, or unable, to provide photo identification they may seek a public notary of their choice to notarize the verification form.

Information will be provided so that parents can go online to activate their PowerSchool Parent Portal account, once the parent verification process has been completed.

Parents are also welcome to attend Jordan-Matthews High School on Wednesday, Nov. 20 from 6:30pm until 8pm to complete this process.  This is a great opportunity to complete the parent verification process and all schools that feed Jordan-Matthews High School will be present.  Parents who opt to have their verification notarized need to bring their notarized form with them to the event.  

We look forward to your participation in the PowerSchool Parent Portal!
