Rockwell students are made up of a diverse group of children, including children who may live in more than one household. We understand that this can present issues when receiving school communications, ordering items, and even for volunteering.  Here are some options for handling this situation when it comes to using the PTA website.

When setting up an account, if you enter in a student name and teacher that matches the student name and teacher entered by another family, your accounts will merge and become a single shared account.  The following information can be seen and edited by all parties who share the account: full name, email, phone, address, volunteering preferences, product orders, donations, and membership signups.

If your families do not have any privacy limitations, it is recommended that you set up a single account with all parents from all households for your child(ren). This can be done two ways:

1) Just enter in the first and second household information in the signup screen.  Then when placing orders, you may need to indicate special instructions from time to time.

2) One parent signs up with their household member information. They then add a parent to their account by adding in the other parents' name and email address (you do not need to input password or any other info). The parent of the second household can then go to the sign-in page, requesting and setting their password at that point to gain access to the account. At this point they can input their household member information.

If your families do have privacy limitations and want to ensure that the other family sharing a student at the school cannot edit or view personal information such as email, phone, address, and volunteering preferences and orders, then you will need to follow these instructions.

Option 1 (Recommended)

Each family will set up their own account.  The two families will enter the student name slightly differently in order to trick the system into thinking there are two separate children.  For example, one family will enter the student name as Jane, and the other will enter Janie (or Joe and Joseph, Alex and Alexander, Chloe and Chloee, Madilyn and Maddie, etc.).  Student or family names with and without accents will not match up automatically (e.g. Renee and Renée) however the directory search function is not likely to find Renée or other students and parents with accented names.

Option 2

Each family will set up their own account.  Only one family will enter the student(s) and the other family will leave this information blank.  Alternatively, one family could enter the older child on their account and the second family could enter the younger child on their account.  This can cause problems when ordering Spirit Wear, yearbooks, or making donations and this option is not recommended.
