FOCUS logo

TheFOCUS Parent Portalis a tool designed to enhance communication and involvement for you in your child's education. This portal will allow you to monitor your child's progress in school by providing timely access to both assignments and grades that are entered by the teacher throughout the grading period. This communication tool will improve your ability to assist your child and to communicate with the teacher if necessary.
In order to create a Parent Portal Account during theDecember 1 - 31open enrollment period, you will need these three things:
1. Your child's 10-digit ID number - this information is available from your child, from their portal page, or on their report card.
2. The last 4 digits of your child's Social Security Number. The SSN must be on file with the school in order for online registration to be completed.
3. Your child's date of birth.

If you do not have the information listed above, or your child's SSN and/or date of birth are not in the FOCUS system, you will need to register in person at your child's schoolafterJanuary 9, 2017.

Once you have created your FOCUS Parent Portal account, you will be able to view your child's grades and attendance information by visiting theFOCUS login page(also linked under the Parents drop-down menu above).

EARLY PARENT PICK UP
Dear Parents,
If you intend to pick up your child before normal dismissal time, we ask that you please send a note with your child to the front office first thing in the morning stating when the child will be picked up and why. This will allow the office staff to write a dismissal pass so that your child can be waiting in the front office upon your arrival. As students now must return their Chromebooks to their homeroom teacher before leaving, this will greatly simplify the process.
Thank you for your help with this!

HOB ATHLETICS NEWS

Dear Sir or Madame,
Three years ago, under the leadership of Principal Mike Henriquez and his administrators, the Horace O達ryant School of Key West ventured to create an athletic program. Henriquez and Athletic Director Kaitlyn Leeman created three teams. Currently, Buccaneer volleyballand boys and girls basketball play at a competitive level. We are very proud of all three teams.
As we move into the 2016-2017 school year, we have a new Principal, Christina McPherson, and Athletic Director, John Grimesey. We endeavor to build on the foundation that has been established. This means creating a multiple sports program that increases opportunity, accountability, and participation among our young people.
To that end, we have begun implementing our running club, which we hope to build into a competitive Cross Country team, and will open our 2017-2018 year with a football team and cheerleading squad. After accomplishing the goal of putting together solid squads in cheerleading and football, we will move to expand to additional opportunities. The accountability and participation will grow along with those opportunities.
As a Key West sports fan, you understand the need to fundraise to field the high school-type athletic program we are striving for. This letter is the start of that fundraising effort.
Between now and winter break, we hope to hang 20 banners dedicated to our sponsors in the gym and on our athletic field fence. These banners will measure 4 feet X 8 feet, will include your choice of artworkand will be visible to thousands of local sports fans. The initial cost of banner sponsorship is $500, and the banner will hang through winter break 2017-2018. After this time, continuing yearly sponsorship will cost $250.
Please contact me if you are willing to take part in this important program. We appreciate how many requests of this type you receive. We believe the benefits of our program will benefit the whole Key
West Community.

Thank you,
John H. Grimesey
