Online Emergency Forms

Each year, the Central Bucks School District requires our families to fill out a Student Emergency & Information Form.

This year, we are asking that you complete your family’s Student Emergency & Information Form online as soon as possible. (Please note that this is in addition to the emergency dismissal form completed at the building level).

The online form will ask you to confirm and/or update the following:

  • Demographic Information
  • Emergency Contacts
  • Health Information, including permission for emergency care and analgesic administration
  • Media Release Preferences

Click here to be directed to your Parent Portal account to complete the Census Verification form.

Thank you for taking the time to update this important information.


For detailed information about this process, including a User Guide, please click here.

If you do not have a Parent Portal account, please follow this link to request one.

If you need help filling out the online form, email or call Lori Rebstock.

If you need technical support, please email parentportal@cbsd.org.
