Back to School Forms

We hope you had a wonderful summer and we are so happy to welcome all of you to the 2021-2022 school year.  We can’t wait to see all of those smiling faces in person on August 31st.  There are many forms that we ask you to read and/or complete to help us all have a successful school year.  This year all forms will be completed online using our Tyler Student Information System (SIS).  If you are unable to complete these forms online, need hard copies or need these forms in Spanish, please contact Liz Harris at liz@citygardenschool.org.

On Tuesday, August 3rd, all families will receive an email invitation to access the parent portal in SIS to complete all of the necessary forms. This will also be used to complete the required daily health survey.  Once you receive the email, you will have 24 hours to create a log in.  Your email address will be your log in and you will be prompted to create a password.  If you miss the 24-hour window, you will need to send an email to Sharmouel Mosley at sharmouel@citygardenschool.org. Current families will not need to create a new password. You can use the same login and password used to complete the daily online health survey during the 2020-2021 school year.

On Wednesday, August 4th, you will receive a text message reminder to complete portal access setup.  We will also launch the online registration where you will be able to complete the online registration forms. In order to receive text messages from City Garden, you will need to opt in using the information below.  If you do not receive Wednesday’s text message, please email Sharmouel Mosley.

Directions to View and Complete Online Forms

Once you log in to the parent portal, you will notice a red exclamation point inside a yellow bar toward the upper part of the screen.  In the yellow bar you will see the word view in blue underlined. This is the link you will need to click to complete and view all forms.  This will also be the section where you will need to click to complete the required daily health survey for your student. Once you click the link that says view, you will be routed to the online registration page.  On that registration page you will need to click edit in order to view/complete each form.  Please note that some forms will only require you to read, others will require you to enter family data.  In order to complete each form, you must select the check box in the bottom left hand corner beside the text in red font.  Checking this box serves as applying your electronic signature.

Once you have selected the check box, click the yellow “Next” button at the bottom of the page to access the next form. Please note that you may save your progress and return to complete later. Forms will indicate whether they are complete or incomplete. Once you have completed all forms, you will see a pop-up window with a header that says “Submit Forms?”.  If you are satisfied with the information on all forms, select the continue button below to submit them. Upon completion a pop-up window will appear saying “Congratulations!” If you have any questions, you may contact either Liz or Sharmouel.
