Frequently Asked Questions

  • During Annual Family Update, families will be able to officially enroll their student in either in-person learning or a virtual program through December 2020. If you would like your student to return to in-person learning as soon as it’s available, please select the in-person learning option. If you’re certain that you won’t feel comfortable having your student participate in in-person learning for the fall semester (through December 2020), please select the 100% virtual learning option. Please note there is not a remote-learning program for district-run early childhood education (ECE) students. Also, families will be able to change their enrollment decision into early fall through the Parent Portal or by contacting the front-office staff at their school. Families who enroll in the virtual program will keep their enrollment spot in their home school.
  • Parent/guardians can update contact information and preferences, upload proof of address for address changes, add or remove emergency contacts, provide information about health conditions and medications, upload immunization documentation, and review and sign policies and releases.
  • The following information cannot be updated online during Annual Family Update:
    • Name changes
    • Address changes (parents/guardians can check the “change of address” box in the Annual Family Update, and can upload a proof of address. The new address itself cannot be entered directly by the parent/guardian.)
    • Race/ethnicity (the school will need to be notified of any changes)
