     Student Emergency Contact & Confidential Health Information

    • Are you moving? Changing jobs? If you have changed your home address, email, cell or work telephone numbers, please make sure you let the school know as soon as possible. There are two ways to update family information: Call the main office at 651-982-1907 and speak to Mrs. K. about any changes that need to be made to your Student Emergency Contact & Confidential Health Information.

      If you are not able to contact the school office during business hours, student information can now be updated online through your ParentVue portal account. After you login to your ParentVUE account, choose “Student Info” from the menu on the left. Families can then update their child’s emergency contact & confidential health information. These updates should be completed for only the individuals who live in your household at your address.

      If your child lives in two households, each household should have their separate contact information available.
