eSchool Parent Portal
Beginning in the 2014-2015 school year, Hawthorne Elementary School and Columbus Elementary School will be moving to Standards-Based Report Cards.  The new report cards, along with student Homeroom and schedule will be posted online on our eSchool Parent Portal. This information will no longer be sent home.  To access your child’s report card, homeroom, and schedule, you will need to sign up for the Parent Portal.

Westlake High School and Westlake Middle School already use the Parent Portal to deliver their report cards.  If you already have a Parent Portal account, you do not need to sign up again.

From the Principal

HES is certainly a Place for Great Beginnings. I have witnessed first-hand the strength of our learning community. I measure this strength by the presence of highly professional and caring faculty and staff, parents who are greatly involved and enthusiastic children who come to school every day with a natural curiosity for learning. The HES community welcomes a strong home-school connection because hand in hand we can accomplish great things for our children. Have a fantastic year!
