Updating your Parent/Emergency Contact Information - In case you haven't done so already!

If you have not done so already, this will pop up when you are accessing your child's progress report on Friday. We are committed to having the most up-to-date contact information for parents and students. It is very important for us here at New Hyde Park Memorial. The Sewanhaka Central High School District requires a record of emergency contact information for parents/guardians or other persons designated by a parent or in the event of an emergency involving their child. The District is asking parents and guardians to annually review accurate and timely information about those designated to be contacted in the event of an emergency. To make this process easy for you, the next time you log into the Parent Portal you will be automatically prompted to update your emergency contact information. (The below button will take you directly to the Parent Portal Log in screen!) YOU MUST CLICK VERIFY TO BE MOVED ON TO ANY PARENT PORTAL INFORMATION! Once you have done so, you will not be asked to do this again. Thank you in advance for your participation in updating these records!

P.S. If you are having any issues with this, please do not hesitate to contact the Guidance office at 488-9552
