More Information 

Infinite Campus
All parents in the CH-UH City School District are able to sign up for our student information system, Infinite Campus.
Infinite Campus is an extremely important tool for parents and guardians. It is the official grade book for the District, meaning that all grades are maintained in Infinite Campus rather than paper grade books for grades 3-12. K-2 parents can benefit by signing on as well, because the system also allows you to check your student’s attendance, assignments, and academic progress. It is an excellent way to communicate with your student’s teachers.
Families are also encouraged to update their contact information in Infinite Campus in order to receive important school and emergency-related information. Families must "opt-in" to receive these messages via phone call or text message.
It is extremely important for your child’s education that you register for the Parent Portal. The activation process is quick and easy and, once completed, you’ll be able to follow your child’s progress throughout the year. You can get your activation code when you register your student or from the school office.
