Skyward Information Verification for returning PFSD students

On or around July 12, current PFSD parents/guardians will receive an email regarding Skyward Information Verification for students RETURNING for the 2022-2023 school year.  Avoid the long registration lines and verify Skyward information online using your parent Skyward Family Access login (Family Access link). NOTE:  This must be a parent user name and password, not a student’s account.

Parents / Guardians are able to update student contact information and complete all annual paperwork. 

The Skyward information verification option is available Tuesday, July 12 through Friday, August 12.

If you have not already accessed your Family Access Account, click on the “Forgot your Login/Password?” link and then reset your password to get to the Skyward information verification.

Incoming kindergarten students and students who are new to the district will NOT be able to use this online option.  Instead, check the Post Falls School District website for in-person registration information.
