WHAT IS “MY FAMILY ROOM”?

Designed for busy parents in a digital age, My Family Room is a secure website that acts as a one-stop, single point of access to all electronic services provided to parents and legal guardians of students in the Upper Canada District School Board (UCDSB).

Its focus is to enhance Board-Parent communication and provide 24/7 access to useful information related to your child. All parents and guardians with legal custody can register for a My Family Room account.

WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS?

With this service, you can:

• Receive phone calls, emails or text messages pertaining to your child, such as absence notifications, school emergencies, bus cancellations, and school events.

• Easily customize your contact preferences to receive emergency notifications to one destination (example: your mobile phone) while receiving non-urgent notifications to a different destination (example: your home phone or email address).

• View key contact information for your child’s school, such as phone numbers and email addresses for Principals, Vice-Principals, and office staff.

• View your child’s transportation, address, phone, absence, and health information.

• View your child’s school calendar online, including PD days, exam days and other calendar items entered by your child’s teachers and school staff.

HOW DO I SIGN UP?

You can register for a My Family Room account by contacting your child’s school. Let the school office administrator know you wish to sign up for a My Family Room account. You will be asked to provide a valid email address to which your My Family Room account activation details will be sent.

WHAT IF I HAVE MORE THAN ONE CHILD?

Parents with more than one child attending schools within the UCDSB can have all children associated with a single My Family Room account. If your children attend the same school, you can complete the registration process for all of your children at the same time. If you have children enrolled at multiple schools, you will be required to contact each school separately to complete the My Family Room registration process.
