It's Time to Update Your Student's 2020-21 Information Using Family File

If you have not completed your Family File for the current school year, please do so ASAP. This information must be updated EACH school year, even this year during virtual learning.  

Access Family File by logging in to HCPSS Connect, selecting the "More Options (Family File, Report Cards, etc.)" tab on the left, and then selecting Family File in the middle of the screen. Details and resources can be found on the HCPSS website. 

A few tips:

  1. Be sure to use the latest version of your Firefox Browser
  2. You must use a proper computer - not a mobile device, phone, or tablet - to update.

Once logged in, parents/guardians will be asked to provide, update or confirm the following information:

  • Student information
  • Parent/guardian contact
  • Emergency contacts
  • Medical information
  • Arrival/dismissal procedures
  • Media release (photo approval)
  • Data confidentiality
  • PTA/PTSA directory

Changes of address may not be made through Family File. If you have recently moved, click here for information about updating your address, and please contact Mrs. O'Connor as soon as possible so we can assist you.

Resources on how to access Family File may be found online.

Parents who have forgotten their login credentials may click the “Forgot Password” link on the sign in page. If you need additional assistance, please fill out this Connect Help Form.  "Account Self Service" help can also be found at on our website.

Parents new to the Howard County Public School System will receive a welcome email with instructions to activate an account.
