    Parent/Legal Guardian Online Access to

    Student Grades and Attendance 

    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 and attendance through a secure web browser 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.  Each parent/guardian is encouraged to create their own personal account.
    To access the Parent Portal, please use the following web address:
    Or use the gray A+ icon (Sapphire Grade Portal) in Popular Links
