Reducing Parental Paperwork

 

REDUCING PARENTAL PAPERWORK 
LORI FAULKNER
MONDAY, AUGUST 19, 2019
 MSAD #49 is working to reduce the large amount of  parental paperwork for the back to school process. We have implemented an electronic version of most of your back to school paperwork.

Parents will need to log into their Infinite Campus parent account to complete these forms.

Go to the Parent Portal. On the right hand side of the page you will find a link to the Portal Account Setup and Password Reset form.


If you need either an account or a password reset filling out this form will notify the tech department of your need.

You will also find on this page two additional links at the bottom of the page, one is a video tutorial of the Annual Student Update process, and the other is a step by step document.



STEPS to set up Infinite Campus GO to the district website:

--msad49.org

--Select menu

--then choose For Parents & Students

--followed by Infinite Campus Parents & Students

--Click Campus Parent

--Then at the next screen there is a link to fill out a form for

account setup or password reset.


IMPORTANT TECHNOLOGY MESSAGE:
We have had students come in asking for a device because they forgot theirs at home. Technology will loan them a Chromebook for the day, they will then be set up on sign-out for 2 weeks starting the next day.  This means student laptops are only available to use during the week, during the school day and are left in technology overnight and on week-ends. 




TO REGISTER FOR ATHLETICS . . . .

Lawrence Jr. and Sr. High Schools have an efficient program that allows parents to register their student(s) on-line for athletics and co-curricular activities.  The program is called FAMILY ID and will streamline the documents that, in the past, you have had to fill out by hand each season!

  1. Go to the DISTRICT website at www.msad49.org
  2. Click on the MENU icon
  3. Click on the FOR STUDENTS AND PARENTS drop down
  4. Click on FAMILY ID
  5. You should see a GREEN button that says REGISTER NOW
  6. Please note that if you have ALREADY REGISTERED you will log in and sign up for the new activity EACH SEASON.
  7. ALSO:Please do update phone numbers, mailing addresses, etc.

          MANDATORY FOR MOST PROGRAMS:

    • INSURANCE INFORMATION
    • PHYSICAL / DR. CLEARANCE dated after July 1, 2019 for grade 7~ after July 1, 2018 for grade 8UP-LOADED into FAMILY ID or ON FILE IN THE OFFICE
    • Please note that junior high physicals may be faxed directly from the doctor’s office to our office at 453-4214.It will be noted in Family ID by our office that the physical is on file.A doctor’s note dated after July 1, 2019 indicating clearance to play will suffice if a physical is not due at these times.

       

  8. PLEASE be aware that until all the documents, signatures, etc. are in place, your child is not considered registered.

     

  9. The program will now walk you through various steps to complete registration.You will create a username and password that you will keep through the years that you have children in the district. The first time you set it up will take the longest then you may update phone numbers, insurance numbers, etc. as they change.

PLEASE NOTE:     If you do not have internet access at home, you might try stopping by after school with your child and sit in our library with your child’s laptop to register OR try your local library computer.  You can also log in from a family computer or from a free WI-FI spot at various restaurants, etc.


FOR 2019 - 2020 school year  SPORTS PHYSICALS: 

If you plan to participate in sports THIS FALL , proof of physical after July 1 for incoming 7th graders  or  8th graders new to the co-curricular program is required or who have not already turned in a physical or uploaded it during the 18-19 school year.  

If, however, you cannot get a physical because you had one in March, for example, a dated (after July 1), signed note from your doctor indicating "cleared to play sports" and when last seen will suffice.  THANK YOU. 

Documents may be uploaded to FAMILY ID (when it is opened in mid August)  or FAXED to 453-4214 throughout the summer.  Items may also be e-mailed to sstevens@msad49.org
