How to log onto Family Portal


**Remember to use your student’s lunch number to log into the portal

for the first time this year. Your previous password will NOT work.



Family Portal for Parents/Guardians:

Login ID: student’s full last name (all lower case, special characters and spaces removed, not to exceed 14 characters) + first initial of student first name + the last 4 digits of the student’s Social Security Number.

Password: Student’s 5-digit lunch number (this number is printed on the label on Principal’s Welcome Newsletter in your packet). This is temporary; the parent will choose a new password the first time they log on.

Example: Your student is John A. Smith-Jones with the social security number xxx-xx-1234. John’s lunch number is 98765. The login id will be smithjonesj1234 and the temporary password is 98765.


Family Portal for Students:

Login ID: student’s last name (all lower case, special characters and spaces removed, not to exceed 14 characters) + first initial of student first name + the last 5 digits of the student’s local ID number (printed on student schedules and report cards).

Password: Student’s 5-digit lunch number. This is temporary; the student will choose a new password the first time they log on.

Example: Student John A. Smith-Jones with the local Student ID number 110098765 and lunch number 23456. The login id will be smithjonesj98765 and the temporary password is 23456.


How Students Log in to School Email:

*It is very important that every student can log into their school email accounts.

1. Go to mail.wcboe.org

2. Log in with username@students.wcboe.org

Username is student’s full last name (all lower case, special characters and spaces removed, not to exceed 14 characters) + first initial of student first name + the last 5 digits of the student’s local school ID. Ex: If student’s local ID is 500033705 their login would be smithjonesj33705@students.wcboe.org

3. Password: Student’s 5-digit lunch number + three zeros. Ex: 23456000

How to Stay in the Know?

The best way to stay in the know is to make sure we have accurate information on file. Please look over all the information on the Student Personal Data and Enrollment Information Form as this is the information we currently have on file for you. Make any corrections to the form in blue. If you need additional space for emergency contact use a separate sheet of paper. Sign the back of the form and return it to the school. If you prefer to fill out a new form you can find a copy on our website.
