Active Parent

active-parent-3-0ActiveParent is a web-based application parents can use to keep track of student’s records. Richton School District parents with more than one student can access records for all them with one account. The goal of ActiveParent is to provide parents and guardians the ability to monitor student’s Grades, Attendance, Behavior, and Course Performance. ActiveParent provided student information as soon as it is entered into SAM (Student Administration Manager).

ActiveParent can be accessed by clicking the picture above or go to:

Visitors on Campus


Visitors must be approved by administration before being given a visitor pass to wear while on campus. Anyone who fails to comply with this policy is subject to being reported to local law enforcement authorities. NO teacher will allow you to enter his/her classroom to speak to a student without a pass. Students from other schools will not be allowed to visit our classes. When parents/guardians go to school to check out their children, they will have to wait in the office; they will not be permitted to visit the child’s classroom or hallway. No visitors will be permitted in school hallways unless teachers on that hallway are notified in advance by the school secretary.

PLEASE FOLLOW THIS POLICY. We must make every effort to enforce this rule.  It is the responsibility of this school to protect you children, so we must have your full cooperation in this matter.
