FIRST DAY VERIFICATION INFORMATION
Whether this is your first year as a Spring-Ford parent, or your last, the transition to a new school year can be a bit overwhelming. To help with this process, the Spring-Ford Area School District will implement online First Day Verification for the 2016-2017 school year. This means parents no longer have to complete the very lengthy First Day Packet for every child in their family!
Parents/guardians may log into Skyward Family Access beginning on August 8, 2016 to complete the First Day Verification process. Families may complete the First Day Verification at a desktop or laptop computer, on a smartphone or tablet. Click here for more information.
