HCPSS Accounts

Beginning August 10, parents/guardians with students new to HCPSS and whose registration has been finalized were/are being emailed student account credentials, which will be used to log in to HCPSS computers and applications.

If you have a child new to the school system and did not receive and/or cannot locate the email in the junk/spam folder of the email account you used during registration, you can use the Forgot Password or Username button on the student landing page to retrieve both your child’s username and password. Account Self Service directions are posted online.

The International Student Registration Center (ISRC) will be open throughout the summer to register students who might need interpretation help.
  • Dates? June 21 - August 18 (except July 5)

  • How? Parents can call at 410-313-1525 and leave a voicemail, and someone will contact them to guide them on what has to be done to register their child.
