Create your Focus Parent Portal Account

Go to Where it says "Attention Parents", click "Create a Focus Parent Portal Account." You must register with an email address that you have on file with Heights Elementary. 

IMPORTANT: If you are receiving the error message "The student you requested could not be found", this most likely means your child's social security number is not on file with the district. Simply leave the box for the Last 4 Digits of Social Security Number blank, and as long as all other information is accurate, you will be able to continue with registration.

Once registration is complete, please allow time for an administrator to verify your account.

To add additional children to your Focus Parent Portal account, go to the Focus login page and select "Click here to add a child to an existing Focus Parent Portal account".  

If having password issues, click the link that says “Click here if you forgot your Focus Parent Portal password”, under the Attention Parents section.
