You may not post or distribute links or shortcuts from the manager, Student App, or parent manager to external sites or parties. Doing so is in direct violation of the license agreement.

Prepare Accounts for Home Access
Home Access must be enabled in the Waterford Manager by an administrator. When Home Access is enabled, parents automatically receive an email with a unique URL assigned to their child and setup instructions. For Home Access to work, it is required that teacher and student user accounts include email addresses, and that student accounts include an accurate birth date.

Find more details in the Home Access section of the School Manager for Administrators guide.

To access the Student Portal at home, the parent or guardian will be given these instructions, which are also included in the Home Access email. You can also download and print parent instructions here.
