Get Connected! Tips to receive school emails and calls
Two-way communication is a top priority in our school district, and email is one of several tools we use to communicate quickly and directly with you. We want to make sure all of our parents and guardians are receiving emails from their child’s school and from the district.
Please see the following tips if you are having trouble receiving emails from your child’s school.
Q: I have not received emails this school year. How can I make sure my email address is on file?
A: Email addresses are pulled from your student(s) pink emergency cards at the beginning of the school year. Only the first contact person’s email that is listed on the pink card is registered. First, you will want to contact your child’s school secretary to verify the email address on the pink card is your primary email. That should solve the issue.
Q: I tried to access the Parent Portal, to check my settings, but I forgot my user name and password. How can I access that information?
A: On the log-in screen, you will see a link called “Forgot Your Password?” Click on the link, and an email will be sent to you. If you cannot see that link on the log-in screen, try a non-mobile device or switch to a different browser. If you still have trouble, email email@example.com to make the request.
Another great communication feature is Parent Connect, which allows parents to see their student(s) academic progress (at secondary level), class schedules (at secondary level), assignments (at secondary level), attendance, cafeteria accounts and transportation information.
To see your child's information, click on the Parents tab on the front page of the district's website (www.livoniapublicschools.org) and click on the Parent Connect menu; from there, go to Parent Connect Log In. Your user name and password are the same you used to adjust your notification settings. If you have forgotten your user name and password, click on the "forgot your password?" link near the log-in box.
The Parent Connect module also has an email option. Parents may receive frequent email updates from Parent Connect, by clicking on the "Email Notifications" link.
If you need assistance with your user name and password, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Phone notifications are placed to all LPS families and staff members in the event of an emergency or weather-related school closure. Schools may also use the phone messaging system to relay other school news. Please make sure you have your correct phone number on file with your child's school.
Q: Can I opt OUT of those early morning “snow day” phone calls?
A: No. This is not an option in this system. It cannot distinguish between “snow day” calls and other calls.
