Family Portal Update: Group Messaging Default to Text

This Family Portal is a user-friendly way for you to access and understand your child’s progress and communicate with their teachers and campus leaders. The Family Portal provides you with key data related to your child’s success, including grades, missing assignments, attendance, and behavior, in one location and will support in-app chat, email, and live translation for more than 60 languages.   

We encourage you to log in and explore the Family Portal and its features. You can access the Family Portal at https://familyportal.yesprep.org Check your email inbox for login instructions and your temporary password sent out on 8/16/21. If you did not receive an email, simply follow the steps under "Set up account" on the Family Portal Help page. The campus with the highest percentage of families logged in at the end of the semester will have breakfast delivered to their next family association meeting.

Starting this week, group messages sent out from campus leaders or teachers will be sent via SMS/text message as the default rather than email. We hope this change will make it easier for you to stay up to date on campus events and classroom announcements. Individual messages regarding your child will still only be viewable when you are logged into the Family Portal. This is to protect your child’s privacy.

If you experience any issues or have suggestions to improve the Family Portal, click the blue “?” icon (Help / Resources) on the login screen to submit a help desk ticket.
