It is time to update your child's emergency contact information in HCPSS Connect! This is the most important step as we prepare for the start of the 2019-2020 school year. Your Family file needs to be updated every school year. 

Families that update and complete their Family File will be able to view teacher assignments for the upcoming school year beginning August 28, 2019. In addition, having this information is critical to us as soon as the first day of school.

HCPSS uses Family File for parents/guardians to complete emergency information. Parents/guardians must verify and/or update information for each child, and can do so by logging in to HCPSS Connect and selecting the Family File tab and then clicking on Family File.

Once logged in, parents/guardians will be asked to provide or update the following information:

  • Student information
  • Parent/guardian contact
  • Emergency contacts
  • Medical information
  • Arrival/dismissal procedures
  • Media release (photo approval)
  • Data confidentiality
  • PTA Directory

Changes of address may not be made through Family File. If you have recently moved, please contact PRES at 410-313-7142 as soon as possible as we need to update your address in our files as well. Parents who have forgotten their login credentials for Family File may click the “Forgot Password” link on the sign in page. If you need additional assistance, please fill out this Connect Help Form

We look forward to seeing you soon!
