URGENT: Update Your Emergency Information!

Thu, 08/31/2017 - 12:49pm

Update Your Family File Emergency Information Before School Begins!  Help us achieve a 100% completion rate! Students will not be allowed on field trips unless the form is completed. 


On Wednesday, paper copies were given to students if their family had not yet updated their family file for the 2017-18 School Year. Even if the information has not changed since last year, we need for you to sign and verify. This is about our ability to reach you during the school day and your child's safety.  We have received a good response from many families.  Thank you!

You can either return the form, signing/dating to confirm that information is correct and or you can go online to update the information . . . http://www.hcpss.org/news-posts/2015/08/hcpss-connect-launch/

Your child will NOT be permitted to attend field trips/special grade level events until the Family File is updated.  This includes the 7th Grade Zoo Field Trip on October 19th, 6th Grade Outdoor Education on October 25-27, and the 8th Grade Lock In scheduled for later on in the Fall.

HCPSS uses Family File for parents/guardians to complete emergency information. Parents/guardians must verify and/or update information for each child, and can do so by logging in to HCPSS Connect and selecting the Family File tab and then clicking on Family File.

Once logged in, parents/guardians will be asked to provide or update the following information:

  • Student information
  • Parent/guardian contact
  • Emergency contacts
  • Medical information
  • Arrival/dismissal procedures
  • Media release (photo approval)
  • Data confidentiality
  • PTA/PTSA directory

Changes of address may not be made through Family File. If you have recently moved, please contact your child’s school as soon as possible.

For students who are bus riders, please note that bus numbers and routes shown in Family File may be subject to change. Please check the school and bus locator on the HCPSS website.

Resources on how to access Family File may be found online. Parents who have forgotten their login credentials may click the “Forgot Password” link on the sign in page. If you need additional assistance, please fill out this Connect Help Form.
