How to Update Your Contact Information - Parents

  • Evanston Township High School uses a school-wide notification system to deliver emergency notifications and other important messages to students, parents, guardians, and staff. The notification system will send messages to parents/guardians based on the contact information provided in their Home Access Center account. Students will receive email messages through their school-issued Google email account (@eths202.org).

    Here are the basic steps for updating existing parent/guardian email and phone contact information online:

    1) Log in to Home Access Center using your parent/guardian user name and password.

    2) Navigate to Registration > Demographic, and click the Edit button in the "Contacts" box.

    3) A pop-up screen titled Update Select Contact Information will appear (you may need to allow pop-ups to appear in some browsers). This is where you will update or add contact information for the existing contacts that appear in this screen.

    4) Be sure to click Save at the top of the screen. Changes made here are effective immediately in Home Access Center. The school’s notification system will receive your updated contact information the following day, and will begin sending messages to the updated email address(es) and/or phone number(s) at that time.

How to Add New Parent/Guardian Contact Information

  • Here are the basic steps for adding contact information for additional parents/guardians online:

    1) Log in to Home Access Center using your parent/guardian user name and password.

    2) Navigate to Registration > Update Registration and click the New link.

    3) Click through and submit changes to the Parent/Guardian Contact Information section. This is where you will enter additional parent/guardians names and their contact information by clicking the Add Contact button. You can add as many parent/guardians as you would like, but the automated notification system will only send messages to the first three (3) guardians listed.

    4) Be sure to click Save at the bottom of the Parent/Guardian Contact Information section.

    5) Check the “I Agree” box and click Submit at the bottom of the page to submit the request to change to your student’s record. Our Registrar’s Office will receive notice of your request and will process it accordingly.

    Please note that you will not see the requested change in Home Access Center until it has been accepted by the Registrar’s Office. You will receive a confirmation email when your student’s record has been updated.  The school's notification system will receive the updated contact information for up to three (3) guardians the following day, and will begin sending messages to the updated email address(es) and/or phone number(s) at that time.
