Counseling & Academics

Parchment

Attention all students: It is important that every Sierra student have an account on Parchment.com so you can have 24/7 access to your unofficial transcript (for viewing, car insurance, etc.) and can order final transcripts (senior year and beyond). Two emails were sent the morning of September 28 to your student email to walk you through the steps to create your Parchment.com account. This should only take 5 minutes if you have a working tablet and access to your student e-mail. Please be sure to get this done by the end of October so you can see grades in November! See Paula, the registrar, in the office if you have any questions.

***If you already have an account on Parchment.com that is connected to Sierra High School, there is nothing more you need to do.***
