classlink

ClassLink is a online one-stop shop where you can store all of your websites (ClassLink calls these APPS) as well as the username/password that you use for those websites. Are you tired or remembering countless different passwords and usernames for all of your school resources? ClassLink takes care of that!

Best of all, if you forget your CHPS account password (for ClassLink / Windows / Google), you can reset it yourself from anywhere! No need to wait for a support technician to be available.

Data Privacy Note: ClassLink does not share any personal information with any third-parties and will only retain certain information for the use of password recovery options. It is a safe and secure way to access the digital resources required within the CHPS community.

parent portal

PowerSchool Parent Portal provides access to student grades and attendance information. Both parents and students can access grade and attendance information via a web browser or the mobile applications available for both Apple and Android devices.

Parents and students can pick up their Portal information at their school's annual Open House, by contacting the school or by emailing PowerSchool@colonialhts.net.

For Parents who created accounts during a previous school year, those accounts remain active and can still be used. When visiting the login page, you may request a password change email that will be sent to the email address you used on the Parent account. If a student changed their personal password from the 4-character password provided, the password can not be recovered online. Contact the PowerSchool Helpdesk for a new password.

Parents must create an account to access the Portal and link their student's information (see directions below). Students may log in immediately using the Student login information provided in the mailing.
