  • Need to Reset Your Parent Focus Password?

    If you are unable to change your password online or you do not know your username or password, we prefer for you to visit your child's school to have your identity confirmed and password changed. Please bring your identification with you to the school. If you are unable to visit the school, you can call the school's administration, and they will utilize a screening protocol. You can send a copy (scanned or picture) of your indentification card with your request to the administration of your child's school.
