Dear Pretoria Campus Parents,

Thank you Middle School parents for joining us for Open House last night. We had a wonderful turn out and appreciate your participation. 

SAFETY FIRST:

Parents we need your cooperation:

 Phone numbers and email addresses: It is critical that phone numbers and email addresses are entered correctly, as per the examples indicated. If not entered correctly, AISJ cannot guarantee parents will receive SMS and/or email messages.

 

Updating and Confirming Demographic Information in PowerSchool

Update if necessary, and confirm address, phone, 3 emergency contacts (not parents) and medical information for each child in PowerSchool.

 

Steps on how to do so:

  1. Log onto PowerSchool. Click on your child's name. Click 'Forms/Signups' (towards the bottom of the navigation panel on the left). Click 'Demographic Update'.
  2. Review, and update if necessary, the data listed on the 'Address,' 'Parents,' 'Emergency Contact' and 'Medical' tabs.
  3. For each tab, even if you made no changes, check the confirmation at the bottom of the screen, and 'Submit.'
  4. If you have more than one child, click on their name, and follow the steps above - you will need to re-enter changes for each child.

Do not enter text into phone fields. Do not enter more than one phone number in a phone field, or more than one email address in an email field.

 

If your child is absent or if you need to contact our school for pertinent information please use the following email address:

Pretoria-Office@aisj-jhb.com

 

Today's events:

  • Please join us today in the Annex, 1:45-2:45 PM for a parent workshop where members of our communication and technology team will provide support for AISJ communication including utilizing our AISJ website.
