Updating Telephone Numbers and Email Address

While most records for Skyward are maintained by the District office (e.g., address changes can only be made at the WAWM Enrollment Center) there are some records that parents can maintain to ensure accuracy.  We are asking parents to review and/or revise home, cell, and work telephone numbers and maintain an accurate email address on file.  Parents can also purchase food service and pay fees online.

Review Your Telephone Numbers

School Messenger will send notices to primary and secondary telephones.  It will only send a message to all three telephone numbers if there is a school emergency.

  1. Go to Student Info > click on REQUEST CHANGES FOR (YOUR CHILD’S NAME).

  2. Click on FAMILY INFORMATION > click on TELEPHONE to list three telephone contact numbers.

     Primary is your home or cell (if there is no home/landline) telephone number.  If it is correct, no changes are necessary.  If an update is needed, enter the primary telephone number.
