Updates Needed for Your Student’s Record

At the start of every school year, we are required to update your student’s records with certain information.  Typically, this happens with a “Back to School Packet” that we send home with each student for you to return hard copies to the teacher. This year, with student’s not on campus, we have a “digital packet” for you to update.  PLEASE HELP US BY COMPLETING THIS INFORMATION FOR EVERY CHILD YOU HAVE AT HANCOCK. It should only take a few minutes of your time.

  1. Updates in Parent Portal - Please log into PowerSchool Parent Portal and select these two options from the left hand navigation to make updates for 2020-2021. If you have not set up a Parent Portal account, follow directions here.  Contact if you have any questions about setting this up.  Note: this does not work on the PowerSchool app, you must log into the website through the link above.

Update Your Information: Please make sure we have the most up to date contact information, including email and phone numbers. Submit any changes.

LCFF Data Collection:  Hancock receives funds from the state through the LCFF (Local Control Funding Formula) and the district is required to submit information about families through Parent Portal in Powerschool this year.  Please see this link for detailed instructions on how to enter and what will be asked:   Instructions for Parent.

News from Hancock’s PTF

We have officially made it into the fall season, Hancock families, and one of the ways the PTF would like to celebrate is by giving away TWO End of Summer baskets filled with incredible prizes! The rules are simple. You must be a registered student at Hancock Elementary to enter (we will be checking) and comment on our Facebook page post specifically about the contest. Contest for the basket giveaways starts Monday, September 28th at 8:00am and goes to Friday, October 2nd at 12:00pm. We will announce the winners of the baskets shortly after.   Good luck families and remember, 'Growing old is mandatory, growing up is optional'- Walt Disney

Extra Yearbooks from 2019-2020

Last year’s yearbook was paid for by our PTF.  We have many extras that were not picked up during the summer distribution.  If your child did not get a yearbook but would like one, we will have a box in front of the office each morning this week. You are welcome to come by and grab one.

Questions/Concerns About Distance Learning Technology Issues

For technology questions/issues, the District IT Department has four Technology Support Centers for Families to exchange broken student Chromebooks and for hotspot pickups. We encourage families to continue to call the Family Technology Support Line 619-732-1400 for initial troubleshooting, but we can now direct families to exchange student Chromebooks when needed to one of the four Support Centers. Please view the SDUSD Family Technology Support Center Locations 2020-21 for locations.  The district also has a support website with lots of information and guides for troubleshooting.  This is a very helpful resource for issues you may encounter.
