On Wednesday, August 19, 2020, you received an email and text from our automated messaging system letting you know you would soon receive your student’s Online Registration snapcode so that you could register your children online.
The message went like this.
August 19, 2020
Dear Parents/Legal Guardians:
As Lexington County School District One practices social distancing amid COVID-19, this year’s Online Registration process is more important than ever.
Our Online Registration system gives you an opportunity to register your students, fill out other paperwork, and even pay fees online.
This week someone at your child’s school will email you a secure code, called a snapcode, and some instructions that you will need to use to register your child in the Online Registration system.
Since 97 percent of our students have a parent/legal guardian email address on record in PowerSchool, this email with the snapcode will come to the email address you have listed in PowerSchool as the primary parent/legal guardian email address.
If you do not get an email from your child’s school by the end of the day, Friday, August 21, don’t worry. We will send you another message with further instructions next week.
If you do not have access to the internet at home, work, or at your local library, but you would like to register your child online, contact your child’s school to find out when you could use a school computer to do that.
If after receiving the email with your child’s snapcode, you have a question about your snapcode or the online registration process itself, please call your child’s school directly. Just remember that most schools have only one person in their front office during the summer, and you may have to call the school more than one time.
We also realize that some of you may need help registering online because of language barriers, lack of devices, or lack of access to the internet. In order to help you, each attendance area will offer two Family Registration Help Days. There will be teachers and other staff at the Family Registration Help Days to help families that need help with the Online Registration system.
Your child’s school will let you know when and where those Help Days will take place. But, if you’d like to know now, go here.
Thank you for your patience as we worked through the new process of creating three different schedules for students in the AA, BB, and C (Online Learning Academy) cohorts at each school.
