FTES Parent Info

Information for Parents

Parent Haiku Accounts

Our Learner Management System, Haiku, provides parental accounts that will allow you to view your child's grades and class activities. 

Your school will be distributing access codes that will allow you to create your parental accounts. If you do not receive a code, please contact your child's school.

To set up your parental account for the first time, click this link.  



You can sign up to receive push notifications or text messages about important events at the school using Remind.  On a smartphone, open your web browser and go to rmd.at/gc9gd23. Follow the directions to create a Remind account, or if you wish to receive text messages, text @gc9gd23 to 81010
