Please see attached FLYER for Important Upcoming Events: Homestead Orientation (9th Grade Only), Parent Orientation (9th Grade Parents Only), Round-Up, and the First Day of School. 

Final Grades for the 2018-19 school year will be available to view on the IC portal starting June 13th.  If you haven’t already opened your Infinite Campus Portal account, please do so as soon as possible.

See our website for more details and instructions on how to activate your account.  Send an Online Tools Help email if you do not know your activation code or cannot remember your password.  When setting-up your account, please take the time to set-up your security information.

On Monday, May 20th, an email was sent to all current 9th – 11th grade families regarding the Back to School Updates and Annual Notification process.  This is the 2nd year using the Infinite Campus Parent Portal to complete this yearly update and notification acknowledgments.  Based on the instructions in the email, recovering your forgotten password only works if you had previously set up a Recovery Email.  We recommend using this link:   then clicking on the green rectangle “INFINITE CAMPUS HELP TOOLS” link, then submit a request by completing the 3 bulleted questions.  You will receive a response within 24 hours with your Username and a temporary reset password.  We encourage you to complete this process by the end of June while our Data Tech is still on campus to help with your email recovery (she will be on vacation during the month of July). 

The purpose of the Guidance Program is to assist students with their academic planning so they can take full advantage of a range of options upon graduation from high school. FUHSD’s Guidance Teams at each site generally include Certificated Guidance Counselors, College and Career Advisors and Administrators. These team members are often the first point of contact for students and families seeking information about FUHSD’s high schools. The majority of guidance services are delivered through group presentations in the classroom or in evening presentations for students and their families. Guidance presentations occur throughout the year at each site with topics that include choosing a college and career, financial aid and course selection. The Guidance team is available to students and their families for individual appointments for support with:

  • College to career planning (including a 4-year plan toward graduation);
  • Facilitating positive, collaborative relationships with peers and teachers;
  • Navigating the high school experience (including time management, involvement in extracurricular activities, self-advocacy, volunteer and internship opportunities); and
  • Social emotional wellness.

The College and Career Advisors are the point of contact for college representatives, military recruiters, volunteer and internship opportunities. They also organize our district’s College Fair each fall. College and Career Advisors support Naviance, our district’s college and career planning tool, which provides students with personalized surveys and customized career and college exploration resources.
