The PowerSchool codes for Xavier High School students will be available at Orientation. Xavier High School announcements can be sent to your parent email from the PowerSchool portal as well. Click here for the URL to log into PowerSchool. 

Parents can also sign up to receive urgent communications from the school system such as for school delays due to weather by going to the notification tab in PowerSchool and selecting text, email or voice option(s).
