Family Portal Challenge

This Family Portal is a user-friendly way for you to access and understand your child’s progress and communicate with their teachers and campus leaders. The Family Portal provides you with key data related to your child’s success, including grades, missing assignments, attendance, and behavior, in one location and will support in-app chat, email, and live translation for more than 60 languages. We encourage you to log in and explore the Family Portal and its features.

You can access the Family Portal at https://familyportal.yesprep.org Check your email inbox for login instructions and your temporary password sent out on 8/16/21. If you did not receive an email, simply follow the steps under "Set up account" on the Family Portal Help page. The campus with the highest percentage of families logged in at the end of the semester will have breakfast delivered to their next family association meeting.

If you experience any issues or have suggestions to improve the Family Portal, click the blue “?” icon (Help / Resources) on the login screen to submit a help desk ticket.

Early Student Pick-up 

We have seen that a high number of students are being picked up early from school. This means that students are missing important class time and are risking falling behind in those courses. 

*If you pick your student up early for an appointment, it MUST be before 3 PM and provide proper documentation. If not, that absence will be marked as UNEXCUSED in your student's record. 

You must have a valid ID present and the person picking up must be listed under emergency contacts for the student. The emergency contact list can be found in Skyward. Updates to this list can be made on the Back to School Forms. Again, please be reminded that ealy pick-up ends at 3 PM. 

Student Absences 

If your student is absent due to a doctor's appointment, illness or court appearance, please remember to send an excuse note or documentation with your child within 2 days of return. You can also email an absent excuse note to Ms. Salazar at Oneida.Salazar@yesprep.org. If your child is out due to testing positive for COVID, please call the front office at (713) 967-7800 to inform them and send documentation upon their return, so the absence can be coded appropriately as being ill with COVID. 

Please remember if your student is experiencing symptoms of any kind, to please keep them home until they are well enough to return. 

Back To School Forms 

If you haven't already, please complete the Back To School forms for your children! All returning and new students to YES Prep will need to complete this process. Back to School forms are available through your Skyward Family Access acount by selecting the tile named 'Back to School Forms 21-22'. You can complete these on a computer or on your mobile device via the browser (you cannot complete the forms in the Skyward app).

See Something, Say Something!

We value the relationships we have built through the years with our parents. Did you know that more than often, you all are the reason we are able to stop incidents before they start? You have access to information first hand from your children that can impact the safety of your student at school. When you have this information, we ask that if you SEE SOMETHING, SAY SOMETHING. Please complete an incident report using the link below if you hear of any issues that may affect the safety of your child at school. This can be bullying, threats of violence, or even disturbing things you may see on social media. Together we can make Southeast a safe place for all students.
