Bishop McNamara High School welcomes our parents!
Check out our page Coronavirus Resources, McNews and Calendar for updates on school learning, calendar, events, meetings, deadline and all other important information as we navigate this challenging time for our families.
MACCESS PORTAL FOR PARENTS
Parents should use the MACCESS Portal for more information, forms, household updates, and more for Parents. We recommend that you log into the portal several times per week.
To log in, go to MACCESS in the upper right corner of any page on the website.
Also know that you have the ability to send and receive messages directly inside of Maccess. To make sure you don’t miss anything sent to you this way by a teacher or counselor, it would benefit you to review your notification settings:
Click your name in the upper right hand corner.
Click Notifications on the left.
Select how you would like to receive notifications for Messages sent through Maccess. You can turn on E-mail or Text notifications if you prefer. (If you do not check either box, you will continue to see message notifications appear inside Maccess, in the upper right corner of the page.)
For technical support, the best place to start is to email MaccessHelp@bmhs.org.
