Updating Parent/Guardian and Emergency Contacts

  • Your Skyward Family Access account will allow you to manage your student's emergency contacts as well as parent/guardian phone numbers.  Georgetown ISD recommends that every student have at least 2 additional emergency contacts listed in addition to parents in the event of an emergency if the parents cannot be reached.
     
    • Log into Skyward Family Access.  (instructions for login here)
    • On the home page for your student, click the Student Info tab on the left-hand side of the screen.
    • Your student's information page will be displayed.  On the top right side, above the school name, click the link that says Request Changes for XXXX (student name)
    •  A drop-down menu will appear.  You can choose Family Information to access and update the parent/guardian phone numbers and email addresses for your student,  Emergency Contacts to view and/or delete existing contacts, or Add Emergency Contacts to add a new contact.
