Reviewing and Updating Your Child's Emergency Contacts

  • Cache County School District uses a notification system called Swiftk12 to notify parents and guardians of important school/district information.  To guarantee the notification system is used efficiently, please make sure your contact information is accurate and up-to-date at all times.  This is easily done by following the instructions on this page.

    SwiftK12 is integrated with the existing PowerSchool Parent Portal.  Thus, be sure your Parent PowerSchool Account is set up before completing the steps below.  Click here to review those instructions.
