Hot Spots
Many parents have asked about Hot Spots. SCH partners with the 1Million Project to issue Internet Hot Spot devices to our students that do not have reliable Internet at home. If your family is in need of this support, please fill out this Google Form and we will reach out to you. We are working on going through this list and trying to acquire more devices. Please make sure your student is fully registered using the Parent Portal before making the request.

 

Registration
All students must be registered using the online registraton system. Please visit https://www.hammond.k12.in.us/powerschool for instructions. For assistance with registration, you can call 937-1680 and choose option 2 or email register@hammond.k12.in.us. We can also set up for you to come in and we can help you walk through the process - when you call in, ask for an appointment.

Parents can login to the Parent Portal and view their student’s username. Once you are logged into PowerSchool, click on the profile icon in the top right corner, click settings, click on My Account, Scroll to the bottom and you will see Children. Click on the name of your child.
