PARENT CONNECTION FAQS:
1. I can’t get into Parent Connection!
a. ALL accounts are wiped out in the summer so Parents must create a new account each school year. Click on Parent Connection link and click on Sign Up to create a new account for this school year.
2. I forgot my password.
a. IF they linked an email account with their login they can go to the Parent Connection sign in page and under the password box click on the link to for “Forgot Your Password?” They will enter in their email associated with their account and the password will be emailed to them.
b. IF they did not link an email they will simply need to start over and create a new account. There is no way to retrieve a lost password without an email address.
3. I cannot add my student!
a. To add a student a Parent must know the following information: Student ID # and last four of the student’s social security # that WE have on file.
***DUE TO STRICT RULES & REGULATIONS WE CANNOT PROVIDE STUDENT ID #’S OR LAST FOUR OF THE SOCIAL SECURITY # OVER THE PHONE. PARENTS MUST COME IN PERSON IF THEY WISH TO GET THAT INFORMATION.***
4. Social Security #’s Do Not Match!
a. IF a parent does not provide a social security card at registration, the district creates a state ID#. If the parent does not know the state ID# they will not be able to add their student to their Parent Connection account. Bring a copy of the student’s social security card to our campus secretary so we can update the account. The parent will then be able to add the student 24 hours after the updated information is turned in.
