How to Confirm Your Contact Information

In order to keep your contact information up-to-date, your school may need you to verify your information.

How do I combine existing accounts?

If you receive an invitation email or text, this may mean that you have more than one account. Open the invitation and click the link Sign in to Combine Existing Account. You can also combine accounts later in My Account settings.

Combine Accounts

Can I still log in using the same email or phone number as before?

Yes, you can log in using the same information as before.

Will I be sent through this process every time I log in?

No, after you complete the verification process, nothing else is needed unless your contact information changes.

Can users share an email and/or phone number?

Yes, family members can share an email or phone number and yet have different accounts. However, if one account is a staff account, they can only be accessed with staff email/phone.

How does a user sign in when they share an email or phone number with another user?

If you are using the same email/phone AND password or Google Sign In, when you sign in you will select your own name.

Can parents have more than one email or phone number?

Each contact (staff or parent record) has only one email and phone associated with it. A parent account can have multiple contacts, with multiple emails and phone numbers if they have different emails/phones for each child in the school database or across districts. Staff who are also parents can have multiple emails/phones.

After verifying your contacts, you can set your preferred order of contacts in which to receive notifications.

How does a staff user sign in that is also a parent?

Staff will need to sign in using their staff contact information. If they enter their (shared) parent contact information they will get this message, "The email/phone you entered is linked to a staff account but is not your staff email/phone. Please use your staff email/phone.”

I never received my verification code by email or text, can I have it resent?

For security purposes, email and text verification codes are only valid for 10 minutes after they are requested. If you need another code, click Resend Code.

Email Verification Codes Sent
