New Student Information System

Morongo Unified School District changed to a new Student Information System this year.  A Portal for student access has recently opened for students to view their grades, take online assessments, and view attendance.  The Student Portal can be found at https://musd.illuminatehc.com/auth#tabs-student We are currently asking the parents to work with their children through the Student Portal until the Parent Portal becomes operational. 



Through a collective effort, valuing collaboration and mutual respect, we are committed to providing a caring, safe, learning community. In partnership with our staff and families, we will facilitate, motivate, and prepare students to learn, as well as take ownership of their education.


To report your child's absence, e-mail our attendance clerk Debbie Hammer. Provide your students name, teacher, and reason for their absence.
