JMC Parent Information System Alert Information

JMC, our student information system allows HES/HHS and it’s staff to communicate with both you and your child regarding grades, attendance, lunch, etc.  You can access student grades under Academics, Progress Reports on the left hand side of the screen.  Progress reports for courses, midterm grade report cards and quarter/semester report cards are emailed out.  If you have not given the school your email address, or your email address has changed, please click on “Contact Information” and update this information.


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 Academics,  then 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, under Academics, JMC Gradebook Portal or under Shortcuts, JMC Parent Portal.  Under Academics, click on the Family 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. 

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!
