Skyward Parent Access


Family Access Toolkit - Parents

As a parent or guardian, you are the single most important factor in your child's education. With Family Access, you can play an even bigger role in the learning process.


Skylert – Emergency Notification

Family Access is also the location where you will find Skylert, our family emergency notification system.  With Skylert, families have the ability to change and add contact numbers and email addresses for emergency notifications.  Once logged into the Skyward Family Access, click on Skylert on the General Information menu on the left navigation bar.  Your Skylert settings will display.  If you wish to make changes, click on Edit on the right of the screen.  Please be sure to verify your information in order to ensure you receive messages related to emergency notifications, school delays and school cancellations.
