Up-to-date email and phone numbers ensure families receive important information
June 15, 2021 – Jefferson County Public Schools (JCPS) is urging families to verify that their contact information is up-to-date, and that they are registered to receive text messages from JCPS as the district prepares for the start of the 2021-22 school year.
Up-to-date email addresses and phone numbers will be important for families to receive communication from JCPS as well as a student’s school and teachers.
For families currently receiving district and school emails and text messages, no action is needed at this time.
For families who are new to the district and still need to register, click here to fill out those additional forms.
To ensure CURRENT parents and guardians are receiving information from JCPS, they are encouraged to take the following steps:
To make sure you receive text messages, simply opt in to School Messenger by texting Y to 67587. You MUST opt in to this system to receive text messages. Even if JCPS has your correct phone number on file, you won’t receive text messages if you haven’t opted in to School Messenger. While texting Y to 67587 is the best and easiest way to opt in to School Messenger, you can also visit the website.
To receive emails from the district and your child’s school, you must have your current email address in our JCPS system. Information can be updated in the Parent Portal. If you do not have a Parent Portal login, you can set up an account here.
If you have an existing account, go to Parent Portal and click “Log on to the Parent Portal.”
- Choose Campus Parent
- Enter log in credentials (user name and password)
- Click More
- Click Family Information
- Click Update (correct your information then click ‘Update’ again)
Families who have previously “unsubscribed” to emails from JCPS, or reported the emails as spam, will not receive future emails.
JCPS’ first day is scheduled for August 11, 2021.
