Sign up for Remind

Remind is a supplemental resource for parents and students that allows you to get information for Knox Junior High right on your phone, not on handouts. Students should not solely rely on this resource; it is NOT a substitute for writing homework assignments and due dates in the agenda provided to students at the beginning of the year. Students are encouraged to write down the homework in each of their classes each day! Sign up now for Team 8 and/or Team 7.

Knox Junior High Facebook Group

You can now join a Knox Junior High School GROUP on Facebook to stay connected with important information and events in the middle school. You will be asked a question or two prior to being approved to join the group. We look forward to improving the lines of communication!

Johnstown School District Parent Portal

Johnstown’s Parent Portal through SchoolTool is available to interested parents as well as to students at Knox Junior High and Johnstown High School.

The portal provides secure access for parents,  guardians and secondary students to view emergency contact information and attendance records. Parents of students in grade 3 through high school may access report cards. Parents and students in grades 7 through 12 may access progress reports and student schedules.

Parents use their personal email address and students use their school email address. After first logging into the portal with a temporary secure password, the password can be changed.

Parents who have not submitted an email address but who would now like access to the Parent Portal should complete a Request and Update Form. The form can be found on our Parent Portal information page, together with the Parent Portal Access Guide for basic help and navigation tips.
