New School Building Update and Plans January 2018: Phase 2 has been approved.  Clark Construction has been awarded the contract and construction is undersway.  Although we are expecting construction noise, especially at the beginning when siding is being removed and they are breaking concrete, the construction company will do their best to be strategic about their timing.  The proposed completion date is March 2019.  Phase 2 will include the Town of Banff’s contribution to expand the new gym (it will be even larger than our current gym!) and a Career and Technology Foundations (CTF) space. Please click here to review the building plans. PowerSchool - Parent Portal We are continuing to work and grow within our new student information system called PowerSchool. The system has many online features for parents to access their own child(ren)'s demographics information, attendance etc. through the Parent Portal.  A letter with instructions, Access ID and Password will be available for parents to pick up from the school office. We are still working through many processes within PowerSchool and appreciate your patience as we continue to add content. Over time there will be many advantages to using this system.   View the following video to help you get started on PowerSchool Parent Portal. 3 Yr.
