  • Fort Osage has an App, an all-in-one information source for parents, students, staff, and community. The app provides password-protected access for student and parents to see live grade and attendance information, allowing parents and students to stay up to date on student progress at anytime, from anywhere. From the app, users can also set their own grade and assignment requirements, a feature which allows the parent or student to be immediately alerted through a push notification if a student’s score or grade drops below that self-selected threshold. If you are a new app user, you can contact your child’s school for your user name and password.
