Time for annual updating of student/family contact information
Dear Parents and Guardians of all Spring Lake Park Schools students,
The new school year is just around the corner. Each year, it is important that all parents and guardians update student and family contact information found in Campus Portal.
Please take a few minutes to review and update the following in Campus Portal before the school year begins:
- Primary phone number
- Emergency contact and phone number
- Email addresses
- Parent and guardian changes and updates
- Adding/removing household members
- Primary address changes
Why is this important? How do we use this information?
Current, updated information in Campus Portal is used in the following ways:
- Automated phone calls and email messages for emergency or weather-related school closings (snow days, water main breaks, etc.)
- Mailed report cards and important school and district communication
- Email communication from teachers, your school’s newsletters, and district news
- If during the school day you need to be reached in regards to attendance, sick child, etc.
Additional features of Campus Portal
In addition to being able to update your family’s contact information, Campus Portal allows you to:
- View secure and timely information about your child's class schedule, attendance, report card, and transcript.
- Modify school phone and email communication preferences
- View lunch/breakfast account balances
- Review immunizations and health Information
