Student Info Update
Glastonbury Public Schools' Online Student Information System
Parents and guardians are required to review several district policies and directives on the Student Information Update site at the beginning of each school year. During this time parents have the opportunity to update student demographics as well.
Please note: If you haven’t already done so, please log in immediately to update/review your student information. Even if your contact information remains the same, there are several acknowledgements that are required every year.
Questions? Please review the information below first, then, if you need assistance, contact technical support at InfoUpdate@glastonburyus.org .
The Student Information Update site replaces a number of forms that in the past, parents/guardians had to review, complete, sign and send back to the school. The site provides a secure place for online entry, and integrates with our other systems. The streamlined, paper-free process has not only saved our district time and money, but has also improved the accuracy of our data.
Parents and guardians access the secure Student Information Update site to review their student and family information. It is critical for this information to be up to date in the unlikely event of an emergency. The site also provides a place for parents to acknowledge receipt of information and policies, sign up for specific programs, and update contact information for receiving parent/guardian email and phone messages.
The site may be accessed from any public or private computer during the annual update window.
Don’t know your Username and Password? Login credentials are sent via email to parents and guardians (or by U.S. Mail to those without an email address on file). Be sure to SAVE YOUR LOGIN NAME AND PASSWORD for use each year.
Username and Password not working? If you copy and paste your login credentials from the email that you receive from the school district, take care not to mistakenly pick up an extra space before or after the username/password when pasting into the appropriate fields on the login screen. To check for extra spaces at the beginning and/or end of the Username or Password, click on each of these fields and press the Home key and/or the End key to see if an extra space is visible.
Interested in linking multiple students with one set of credentials? If multiple students in the same household attend Glastonbury Public Schools, you may have them linked together for single sign-on for future updates. To initiate the request, send an email with your students' names, schools, and grades to InfoUpdate@glastonburyus.org with the subject line LINKME. Note that the linking process is not retroactive. Student names must be linked together either before you log in to review and update -or- after you have completed the individual updates for each student in the household.
If you have any problems logging in, contact technical support at InfoUpdate@glastonburyus.org.
Review and Update Information
The Student Information Update site is populated with your student's current information. You will be presented with several screens of data and asked to update as necessary.* Once you reach the screen entitled “Your Student Information Update is Complete," your student's data will be recorded. It is important for the district to maintain accurate contact information for each student and parent/guardian(s) throughout the year. Following the initial update window each Fall, parents/guardians may return to the secure Express Update site and use the same credentials to access and update contact information (email addresses, phone numbers and text numbers) whenever necessary.
*Certain changes, such as your home address or changes in legal guardianship, will require confirmation via documentation, which must be provided to the registrar at our Central Office. Complete all changes on-line first and then contact the registrar for other changes.
The parent notification system allows the school district to communicate information in an effective and timely manner. The Student Information Update site is used to update contact information for our School Messenger parent notification system. The district currently uses School Messenger to communicate both routine messages (i.e. school events and reminders) as well as emergency messages (school closures or other serious safety concerns) to Glastonbury Public School parents and guardians.
- Routine messages are sent only to email addresses you designate as primary.
- Emergency messages are sent out to all phone numbers, email addresses, and text numbers you provide.
- Text messages are only used for emergency notices and school delays/early dismissals. These numbers must be entered into the School InfoUpdate system AND you must OPT IN (text back "Y") when you receive the initial authorization text from School Messenger.
Please note, if you are having trouble receiving notification emails, please add firstname.lastname@example.org to your email Contacts or Address Book. Also, check your spam/junk mail folder for emails from that address, and add it to your "safe" senders list” to ensure that emails from the School Messenger parent notification system are successfully delivered to your Inbox.
School Information, Policies, and Programs
The Online Student Information Update System will be used for parents/guardians to review and acknowledge receipt of information and policies (many or which are required by the state) such as your school handbook, the technology acceptable use policy, and pesticide notifications.
