Verifying/Updating Student Information

Starting in the summer of 2019 parents and guardians will have the ability to verify their child(ren)’s enrollment information through the parent portal, ParentVUE. This annual process was formerly completed on the paper Census Form where parents/guardians had to review, update and return to the office. Verification of student information can now be completed online.

In order to complete the online verification process you must have an active ParentVUE account.  More information about ParentVUE can be found here.  If you have forgotten your ParentVUE password click here.  If you have never logged into ParentVUE you will need an Activation Key, please contact your school if you do not have one.  

Importance of Current and Accurate Information

The Student Verification of Enrollment process is very important to Lincoln Public Schools. The district uses information provided by this annual process in many ways to support your child’s academic success and for safety purposes. By updating your child(ren)’s data, we can do the following: distribute important information to you, contact you or others in the event of a school emergency, respond appropriately to a medical situation involving your child, and communicate your child’s academic progress. 

You will need to verify each of your child(ren)’s enrollment information each year. Carefully review this information to be sure all information is complete, accurate, and current. 

Medical Conditions

Many of our students have medical conditions that may affect them at school. Health Services requests that parents update the Medical Condition Information each year. A School Nurse may contact you to obtain more information regarding your child’s medical condition. If your child requires medication at school, please contact the school for more information.

Parent/Guardian and Emergency Contacts

The District assumes that all legal guardians listed as a parent/guardian have these relationships checked: Lives With (if applicable), Contact Allowed, Educational Rights, Mailings Allowed and Release To. If this is not the case, you will be required to provide legal documentation. Non-legal guardians such as stepparents, aunts, uncles, grandparents etc. will have the following check boxes checked: Lives With and Contact Allowed. Educational Rights and Mailings Allowed will remain unchecked unless Custodial Parent(s) provide written documentation stating otherwise. Has Custody (for non-legal guardians) will require legal documentation to be submitted to the school.

To provide the necessary consent, please indicate whether your child may be “Released To” persons listed in the parent/guardian section who is not a legal guardian. In addition, you must give your consent to release your child to specified Emergency Contacts for regularly scheduled, non-emergency situations such as after school care. You may consent by checking the “Release To” box in both the Parent/Guardian and Emergency Contacts sections of this form.

Student/Family Handbook Review

The Formal Acknowledgement of Student & Family Handbook Review is part of the enrollment verification process. After reviewing the Student/Family Handbook, within the online enrollment verification process, you may check that you and your child have read the handbook.
