2019 Emergency Contact Update & Required Student Waiver Forms will go live at 9am on Monday, July 8, 2019.
Most school sites within WPUSD (including LHS) are not allowing families/students to see who their teacher will be and/or their class schedule until the parent/guardian completes their Parent Portal account setup AND completes their 2019 Emergency Contact Update & Required Student Waivers (live on Monday, July 8, 2019). Access to the Emergency Contact Update will close on August 16, 2019 at 5pm.
By creating a PowerSchool Parent Portal account, you will have online access to your child's current schedule, attendance and grades. As of spring 2019, the Parent Portal will be the only place to check your student's SBAC test scores. During each summer, you will be able to update your child's emergency contact information for the upcoming year (As of summer 2018, we no longer send home paper emergency cards. All Information must be updated electronically). Included in the Emergency Contact Update are the Technology Use Agreement, the Student Health Insurance options, and the Photo Release Approval.
Fill out each field under "Parent Account Details" (Please note, we recommend you write down your username and password and keep for your records)
Fill out the "Link Students to Account" portion. If you have multiple students in the district, you may add them all to your account at this time.
If this is your first time setting up an account, you will need an "Access ID" and "Access Password" associated with your student (each child has their own ID and password). Your child's SCHOOL SITE will have this information - please contact their school to obtain this information. Beginning June 17th - August 5th, contact the District Office at 916-645-6350 for this information.
Scroll to the bottom of the screen and click "Enter"
If you do not have access to the internet, your child's school site or the district office has computers available to set up your Parent Portal account.
