Parent Portal and SchoolMessenger
Have an account?
For those of you who have not already applied for a parent portal account:
- If you're not sure if you have an active account, simply click this link and use your email address as the username to attempt to reset your password.
- If the system does not recognize your email address, then please complete a parent portal application form and email it along with a scan of your photo ID to firstname.lastname@example.org.
- If you already have an active parent portal account, sure to check that we have your correct parent contact information. Here is the link to log in.
GCPS parents and guardians can access SchoolMessenger through their Parent Portal account. The link is found under the Notification System tile. A parent also can use the app or visit the SchoolMessenger website at go.schoolmessenger.com. Create an account by clicking Sign Up at the top right.

TO CHANGE INFORMATION IN YOUR ACCOUNT
Student Preferred Name
Families of students who wish for their child to be called by a “Preferred Name” other than their legal name will need to go into ParentVUE (in the GCPS Parent Portal) to provide that information. (Please note that if you had provided a "Nickname" previously, you still will need to enter that name as your child’s Preferred Name.) See details.
Phone NumbersParents can update student's home phone number and emergency contacts through Parent Portal.
Home AddressParents cannot change a home address on Parent Portal. That has to be done in person with supporting documents that the school places on file. Visit the Registrar page for details.
Email AddressComplete another Parent Portal application and present it at the main office with a photo ID. Please write CHANGE OF EMAIL on top of the form. Or email the form and a scan of your ID here.See all forms on this page.
