Parent Information

Parents have access to various tools to track their child's performance. Progress reports are sent home halfway through each marking period. Parents can access their child's attendance, report cards, and transcripts at any time by signing up for a Daedalus* account. In addition, many teachers at QV utilize Engrade, an online gradebook, to track student grades, post assignments, and facilitate online class discussions. Your child's teacher(s) will alert you if they use Engrade.

*To collect your Daedalus login info, contact your child's guidance counselor to arrange an appointment.
