Important Back-to-School Information

Dear Parents:

We are excited to welcome students back for the 2017-18 school year! Although classes do not begin until August 16, we are busy with preparations to ensure students have a successful experience. We can’t do it alone, however. We need your help!

Each August, we ask parents to update personal information for their children, including telephone numbers, emails and home addresses. Additionally, there are numerous permission forms that must be signed annually, including several required for extracurricular activities. Having correct information is critical for student safety so that we can contact you if your child needs you immediately. We also want to be sure you receive important school and district information by phone, text and email.

We are asking all parents to log into the Powerschool Parent Portal this week (August 1 to August 6) to update information for the upcoming school year. You may complete the steps below from any computer with internet access, including a middle school or high school student’s school-issued Chromebook.

NOTE FOR FAMILIES OF ELEMENTARY STUDENTS: If you are unable to complete this task before open house, Chromebooks will be available in each classroom for your use. To save time the night of open house, however, please complete this task by Monday, August 7.

NOTE FOR FAMILIES OF SECONDARY STUDENTS: Beginning Monday, August 7, district-issued Chromebooks of students who have not updated information will enter “kiosk mode” that only allows users to access the parent portal. In order for your child to continue to use the Chromebook normally, please complete this task before Monday, August 7. If this is not possible, computer access will be available for parents of secondary students at open house as well.

Here are the steps for accessing the Parent Portal and completing the required updates:

  1. Login to the ParentPortal with your username and password. https://powerschool.enidk12.org  (If you do not have a username and password, please contact your child's school site for this information.) Find a School Phone Number
  2. Once inside the ParentPortal, click on the "Registration" link on the left-hand side. This will allow you to begin the updating process for your child.
     
  3. Answer every question where there is a * mark. Once all * marks have been completed, you will be directed to either "Submit" the student information or will be asked to correct any "Required" or "Invalid Format" areas. If you have any areas to correct, please fix those and click “Submit.”
     
  4. If you have more than one student, close the PowerSchool Registration page and click back into the ParentPortal. Change your student and begin the process over.
     
  5. You will see an area that asks if you would like to "snap" the information to the next student, by leaving this marked “yes,” it will update the changed addresses and phone numbers for you. You will be required to complete the agreements and health information for the students remaining.

Thank you for your cooperation and for your support of Enid Public Schools. Let’s have a great school year!
