Important Back-to-School Information
We are excited to welcome students to school for the 2018-2019 school year. Below are important instructions to guide you on how to update Annual Information in Skyward and give you an update on busing information and the new SchoolPay program for lunches and fees. Thank you for helping out by completing the updates. We hope you find this information and the new programs helpful. We are looking forward to the strong start of great year!
To complete the Annual Information Update Process:
- Login to Skyward
- Click the Annual Information Update tab on the left
- Select a child
- Fill out the forms on the page
- When finished all steps, click Submit Annual Information Update (If the submit button is greyed out, you must go back and complete all sections.)
After the student’s Annual Information Update has been submitted successfully, you will receive an email confirming your Annual Information Update has been submitted. You will need to complete this process for each child. Can’t remember your Skyward Login information? Click the “Forgot Login/Password” link on the Skyward login screen. Only the primary guardian will have access to complete the full Annual Information Update; however, all parents will be able to update their individual contact information via the Annual Information Update tab. If you have any difficulties, please contact the school office for assistance.
Post Cards with busing information will no longer be mailed. Busing information for all Owen J. Roberts students will be available by logging on to your student’s Skyward account and selecting the Busing tab. 2018-2019 Busing information will be available August 17, 2018. Although information is available, we strongly suggest logging in closer to August 27th as there are several last minute changes that could affect your student’s pick up and/or drop off times. Please contact the Transportation Department with any questions at 610-469-5254.
SchoolPay is our new electronic payment processing service. Please visit SchoolPay.com to make online payments for school related fees and registrations. SchoolPay is now available to make online payments for Food Service. The District no longer uses eFunds for acceptance of online payments. For your protection, any stored payment information was not transferred to the SchoolPay system. As per District policy and consistent with prior years, account balances from the 2017-18 school year will be carried forward to the new school year. Please direct SchoolPay questions to 888.88.MYPAY (phone) or email firstname.lastname@example.org. If you have an email on file with the school, an account has already been created on your behalf. Simply go to SchoolPay and click Find My Account and enter your email address.
