Metamora Grade School invites you to try Family Access by Skyward, Inc.

Family Access is a secure Internet service that will allow you to easily keep track of nearly everything your student does at school.

This service allows you to view your student’s attendance, food service balance, update emergency information and more. Grades 5-8 students will have schedules, grades and progress information available.

Family Access is a free service available to all parents, with children enrolled in the district, that provide an e-mail address.


Please e-mail your name, student's name, and the e-mail address you want associated with the account to Paul Weber at if you would like to sign up for Skyward.

I will e-mail you credentials to start using Family Access. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact me.


Skylert is a parent/guardian mass communication notification service that MGS will use to provide information in a timely manner regarding school and extra-curricular cancellations, early dismissals, special announcements, and information pertaining to the District’s crisis management plan.  Information will be handed out each year during registration to sign up for this valuable home-to-school communication tool. 

Skylert is a way to quickly send mass notifications to staff and parents in the case of an emergency.  Skylert can send tens of thousands of messages in just minutes.

The District can quickly alert you of an early school closing or other emergency situation.

Using Skyward Family Access, you can select how to be contacted in an emergency: phone, email, and/or text message.

Parents can update preferences and contact information anytime and as often as they like using Skyward Family Access.

In addition to school closings and emergencies, parents can also be contacted with low food service balances and automatically receive updates about attendance discrepancies.

Please contact Paul Weber at with questions about the mass communication system, to sign up, or make changes to your phone numbers.  If you are not sure that you are signed up, please don’t hesitate to contact me.

In the event of a school closing, in addition to phone notification, information may be posted on the school website, emailed to parents with an address on file, and provided to local broadcast media.
