Back to school preparations include checking uniform requirements, school supply lists and bell schedules, but have you also checked that your contact information on file with the school is current?
Not only is it important to keep your phone number, address and email address up-to-date with your school for valuable school news, but supplying the correct contact information is imperative for receiving important updates should there be an emergency with your child or at your child’s school.
For the safety of students and staff, during a critical incident such as a lockdown, the use of cellphones and other communication devices is prohibited inside a school. However, the School District will send important and informative updates via phone, text and/or email message so that parents have the most current information about the status of the incident and safety of the children.
Parents can check the contact information that is on file at their child’s school through SIS using the following steps:
• Log in to the SIS Parent Gateway.
• Select the MY CHILD tab on the left side of the screen, then click CHILD INFO.
• Click on ADDRESSES & CONTACTS. By hovering your mouse over the parent or guardian’s name, you can see what phone numbers and email addresses are associated with each contact. Secondary emergency contacts provided at registration are also displayed.
Not able to log in to SIS? Contact the school directly so that the SIS Manager can provide a PIN to log in. Or contact the school’s data processor to confirm what contact information is on file.
Any changes to your contact information should be made in person at the school. Simply visit the front office and work with the data processor. This information can be updated as needed throughout the school year.
