JMC Student Information System Alerts
Alert System Information
JMC, our student information system (Grades, attendance, lunch, etc.) has had a number of improvements made to it. These changes will allow HES/HHS and its’ staff to communicate better with both you and your child. Another important notice is that until recently, Hancock Public School has notified students, parents, and community members about scheduling changes, upcoming events, and reminders through our Instant Alert System. This system has been discontinued. In order to continue to get notifications from Hancock Public School it is essential that all of your information is updated and correct within the JMC system. This information can be updated by clicking on “Parent Information” icon on the left hand side.
- To receive a text message, you will need to provide a cell phone number and to the right hand side of the Phone option check “SMS (Text Message).
- To receive an email, you will need to provide an updated email address.
For District Residents that are non-JMC users:
- In order to sign up for JMC Alerts, please contact the school office at 320 392-5621 and one of our office assistants will get the information needed to set you up.
Because so much of our communication takes place electronically, it is essential that, if you have an email address, this address is typed into JMC correctly. Last year we implemented electronic midterm reports. Midterm grades were emailed out to all 7-12 parents that we had an email address for. All other midterms were mailed out. This year we are also going to email out report cards for students in grades K-12. Again, for those of you who do not have an email address, we will still mail out a hard copy. We ask that you update your information by clicking on the “Parent Information” icon on the left-hand side of the page and make any changes necessary to your current page. NOTE: Instructions for accessing the JMC Student Information System are provided below.
You can also check your lunch account balance by clicking on the “Lunch” icon on the left-hand side of the screen. If you would like to receive a “Family Lunch Balance Alert” when your lunch account reaches a certain amount, you can set this low balance limit by clicking on the “Alert Configuration” icon on the left-hand side of the page and entering the amount next to “Low Balance Limit”.
Also under the “Alert Configuration” Icon, you will see a box that says “Period Attendance Alert”. These boxes are automatically checked. So, if you do not want to receive an email alerting you if your child was marked absent or tardy for a class, you will need to uncheck these boxes.
Below the “Period Attendance Alert” box is the “Missing Scores Alert” box. Again, this box is automatically checked so that you will receive an email alert when your child has a missing score in one of their classes. If you do not want to receive this alert, you will need to uncheck this box.
After any changes have been made, it is important that you click on the “Save” button to ensure that JMC saves your requested changes to the system.
Our primary goal is to ensure that we are communicating with you on a regular basis in the most efficient ways possible. If you have any questions for us, or if you have any concerns, please feel to free to contact us at 320-392-5621. Thank you!
Instructions for Accessing JMC
You can access JMC by going to Hancock Public School’s website: hancock.k12.mn.us. At the top of the page is a tab labeled “Academics”. Click on this tab. Then click on the JMC Gradebook Portal link. Clicking on this link will take you to a page that has five icons (Office Staff, Point of Sale, Teachers, Parents, and Students). Click on the correct icon and it will bring you to the log in page where you can enter the appropriate username and password (Parents: Your username is your last name. If you do not know your password, please contact the school at (320) 392-5621 to get it). It is case-sensitive, so you must type it in exactly as given. Once logged in, you can check student grades by clicking on “Progress Reports” on the left hand side of the screen. If you have not given the school your email address, or your email address has changed, please click on “Parent Information” and update this information.
Parents, your username and password will be exclusive to you, so you will be the only one who can view your child’s information. Please make sure that you keep your password in a safe place, or memorize it. Students have their own username and password. This will allow your child to access only their own grades, not other siblings. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact the school office at (320) 392-5621. Thank you!
