If you’re using the Parent Portal and preparing for the new school year with QuickSchools, it’s important to note that you don’t have to re-invite parents to the Parent Portal. You just need to invite your NEW parents. However, it’s always a good idea to send out a quick email to all parents, reminding them about access to the Parent Portal, how it works, and how to get help.
Tip: If you haven’t set up a dedicated page for parents on your website, we highly recommend that you set one up. This will help improve the experience for parents. We have some ideas here:
Parent Portal Quick Guide
So back to the topic at hand…
You can use the Mass Parent Messaging Feature to send out an email to all parents, regardless of whether they’ve been invited to the Parent Portal. The crux of the message should contain the following salient points:
- Link to your site (for Parent Portal Access). The username should be the email address
- Do not sign up for an account
- Tips for Parents
- Supported Browsers
- How to use the “Forgot password”
- Engaging Chat Support
- Contact the school if have never been invited before
Here’s an example email:
|Dear parent, |
We’re excited aboutthe upcoming school year. For returning parents, your previous access to QuickSchools should still be valid. Just log in using your email address to our school’s account at QuickSchools. The link is below: https: // <SCHOOLCODE>.quickschools.com If you havean account, but don’t remember the password, please use the “Forgot Password” feature on the login page. Or feel free to chat with QuickSchools chat support. They are extremely helpful.
If you’re a parent of a new student at our school, or if you never received an invite from us to access the Parent Portal, please contact us.
We look forward to the new school year. Thanks!
Once the email is sent, you will likely get some responses, and can either invite or re-invite parents to the parent portal. Please feel free to contact QuickSchools Live Chat Support for assistance if needed.
