What is the best way to keep parent information up to date?

As an admin you can request to send an email to all parents asking for them to confirm and/or update their contact information.

To do this, perform the following:

  1. Go to Admin/Tools and click the “Send request to parents to update their contact information…” link
  2. On the displayed page, fill in a subject, such as “Update or Confirm your contact information”
  3. Enter a message that describes why it is important for the school to keep your contact information up to date (keep a copy of this message and the subject in a separate document (like a Word doc) if you want to send a test message before the real one)
  4. Send a test message to yourself so you can see how it works.

Each email lists the contact information for the parent it is sent to, along with a list of students in the system belonging to the parent, and contact information for any of the other parents listed in the system for those children.

The parent can click on a link to confirm that the address, phone, email information is correct, or click a second link to update that information.
