You can login to your SIS Parent account now to verify that you have a primary email address within the system. It is listed under the My Account tab. If it is blank, enter the email address where you would like to receive the progress reports and click on update account.
Weekly progress reports for all of your middle and high school students will be included in one email. FCPS elementary schools do not use the SIS gradebook and therefore are not included in these reports.
