Second Semester Progress Reports Available Online Wednesday, June 16

Progress reports are posted online twice a year at the end of the first and second semester. The second progress reports for this school year will be made available online on Wednesday, January 16. Due to COVID-19, and our current model of combining on-campus and virtual learners this school year, the Lower School teachers will write a narrative to the student and there will be no checklists. The narrative allows the teacher to elaborate on a child’s performance this year, which includes areas of growth and goals for future growth and improvement and recommendations for summer work. Teachers write their comments directly to the student. This supports our mission statement, “A Flint Hill education focuses on the learner,” and develops our students as self-directed learners, one of the core competencies of the Portrait of the Flint Hill Student.

Instructions for accessing ​Grades JK-​6 progress reports:

  1. Log into Husky Hub.
  2. Click on your name at the top, right-hand side of the page, and click on “Files & Forms.”
  3. Under your child’s name, locate the “Lower School Progress Reports” section, and click on the “20-21 Semester 2 Narrative” report.

If you are moving on to a new school, progress reports will be available to you online until Tuesday, June 29. Departing families will also receive a hard copy of their child's progress report via mail.
