Infinite CampusClick here for more informationParent/Student Infinite Campus Sign In
The Parsons School District and Guthridge School are committed to providing parents with the information they need to help their students be successful. Parents may establish an account for the Infinite Campus Parent Portal and be able to access attendance, schedule, grades, and other information about all the students in their family. The Infinite Campus data system is a powerful tool to assist parents and teachers to work together for student success.

Parent-Teacher ConferencesParent-Teacher conferences are scheduled during the first and third quarters. Pupil progress is determined each quarter through an assessment of individual growth & progress and is indicated on reports to parents. While parents are always encouraged to confer with teachers concerning pupil progress, a framework for conferences has been established to insure two-way discussion of your child's progress.

Parent Teacher Organization (PTO)
There is one district-wide Elementary PTO that represents Lincoln, Garfield, and Guthridge Schools. The PTO sponsors three room parties a year - Halloween, Christmas and Valentine's Day. PTO fundraisers provide money for equipment and events to promote students' education.

Site Council
The Site Council is a group that consists of community members, parents, and staff members, that meet quarterly, to discuss how we can better serve the community.
