Infinite Campus Parent Portal

Nashwauk-Keewatin utilizes the Parent Portal, a web based student information page.  You have 24 hour access to your student’s class schedule, grades, missing work, behavior, health information, and any fees owed.  You can also access your food service account here. Please keep your email information up to date so teachers may contact you through Parent Portal.  If you need assistance or login information, please call Mardell Bevacqua at 218-885-1280, ext. 51102. There is also a link to URTurn to track credits, attendance, and students can make their own personal goals.  app.urturn.org
