Subscribing to class email alerts

To subscribe to receive automated class email alerts:

  1. On the Parent Registration Form, enter the following information:
     
    • First and Last Name (required)
    • Email Address (required)
    • Mailing Address (optional)
    • Phone Number (optional)
       
    Each required field is marked with a red asterisk (*). If a field does not appear with an asterisk, the site you are registering on does not require this information to subscribe.
     
  2. In the field provided, enter the verification code exactly as it appears in the box above that field.
     
  3. Click the Register button at the bottom of the screen. Once you’ve registered, you will receive an automated email message from eChalk with your username (your email address) and password. Once you log in, you can change this password to something you can easily remember. For more information on logging in to eChalk for the first time, see Logging in for the first time.

Logging in for the first time

The first time you log in to eChalk, you'll choose a new password and set up your personal profile. This is a one-time process; the next time you use eChalk, you'll only have to log in with your username and password to go directly to your My Account page.

To log in to eChalk:

  1. Enter your username.
     
  2. Enter your temporary password.
     
  3. Click the Login button. Your school's Acceptable Use Policy page appears.
     
  4. Read the terms of the policy and click the Accept button to continue. (If you click the Do Not Accept button your user account will not be activated, and you will return to the external log-in screen.) The My Profile > Change Password screen appears.
     
  5. Type a new password and retype it to confirm it. Your new password can be any combination of numbers or letters. (Choose wisely; your password should be easy for you to remember, but impossible for others to guess!)
     
  6. Click the Submit button when finished. The Edit Profile page will display.
     
  7. Correct any information that appears incorrectly on this page and click the Finish button. You will be returned to the My Profile page where the edited information will display. Note: If you change the external email address that appears, remember that you’ll need to use this new email address as your username the next time you log in.
