The Parent/Student Portal is part of the Student Information System at Monroe-Woodbury. It enables students and parents to see schedules, assignments, grades, attendance and course registration requests. More importantly, it is key to reaching parents and guardians with important information in case of weather issues, building closures or other important district events.
The Portal is designed to:
- provide grades, attendance and other information to parents, guardians and students
- manage communication and emergency information from the school district to parents and guardians
The Portal account is linked only to student(s) who are family members, allowing review of student attendance, grades, assignments and other information posted by individual teachers.
Under the Alert2 system, parents/guardians can determine the contacts and media used by M-W for sharing information and updates such as weather emergencies and school closings.
The Portal provides access to attendance, grades and assignments teacher by teacher. Beginning in 8th grade, high school course selection is submitted through the Portal. Links to certain online testing sites are provided as well.

Parent/Guardian Contact System
Alert2 is the contact system used to inform parents and guardians about information important in the district. The district reaches out in three ways:
- Voice phone calls
- SMS Text Messaging
Parents/guardians can control the district contact method. If phone calls are inconvenient, choose text or email. If email access is limited, choose phone call or text. All three methods may be chosen if that is preferred. The district will send notifications only in the manner selected in Alert2.
One important note: in the event of an emergency, the Emergency Broadcast will use all three contact methods regardless of selected preferences. In an emergency, contacting parents/guardians is the priority.
How to set Preferences in Alert2
Access to Alert2 is through the Parent Portal. Look for Alert2 on the QuickLinks on the left of the Parent Portal page to set preferences following the steps in Updating Alert Solutions 2 Contact Settings.
