    Family Online Access to
    Student Grades and Attendance 

    Parents/guardians must each create their own Sapphire Community Portal account for online access to their students' information.

    The Upper Merion Area School District uses the Sapphire Community Web Portal.  This portal allows parents and legal guardians to check their child's grades, attendance, and school records through a secure online connection. Currently, this portal displays grades only for Upper Merion Area Middle School and High School students; however, attendance records are accessible for elementary students.
    To access the Community Portal, please use the following web address:
    Or use the gray A+ icon (Sapphire Grade Portal) in Popular Links
    Attention Parents: Portal accounts are permanent; you DO NOT have to apply again each school year. Login username and password remain the same. If you have forgotten your login information, you can use the form at the bottom of this page to request it.

    Please follow these steps to set up your Parent Portal account:
    1. Go to this web address: https://www.umasd.org/mygrades

    3. Complete the online application. Be sure to include all required fields represented by * symbols. List all your children who are Upper Merion students.

    That's it. Once you have submitted your application, district personnel will review it for approval.

    If any information you submit does not match the information provided at registration, you will be contacted to provide additional documentation.

    You do not need to fill out a separate application for each student.  You may complete one application for all students for whom you have legal responsibility.

    Your child's privacy is very important to us. Parents or guardians will be validated by district personnel before the account is activated. Access to information is restricted by a secure logon and password. Furthermore, the information that is posted to this site is merely a copy of the real information, ensuring that no one can alter actual permanent records through this application.
