Update your Contact Information

We use many methods to keep in contact with parents, mainly email and phone.   We rely on you to provide us with the most current contact  information so that we can keep you informed. If you have a change to any of your information , please call the Main Office at 815.485.2136 or email Mrs. Laurie Ford, school registrar.

Automated Messaging

PCHS uses the automated messaging system called Notify to contact families about school closing, meeting reminders, and other issues concerning your student. We use the phone numbers and emails you provided via the re-enrollment online form which you completed in July. Therefore, it is important that you contact us as soon as possible with your new contact data. We don’t want you to miss any important calls or emails!

Receiving Emails from PCHS

We rely primarily on email to send newsletters and other information to families. Please be sure that you have whitelisted the following addresses

  2. Any  email address
  5. Any email address
  6. (these are emails that are sent via PlusPortal)

It is always good practice to check your junk/spam/clutter folder for any emails from that may have been incorrectly flagged.  (See below for more details.)

If you are a parent or guardian and are not receiving our emails, please follow these steps:

  1. Check your junk, spam and clutter folders for the email.
  2. If you find the email in one of those folders, be sure to mark it as a “safe sender” or “not spam”.  This will prevent future emails from us from being marked as spam. (See below.)
  3. If you still do not receive our emails, it is possible that we do not have your correct email on file.  Call or email our registrar Mrs. Laurie Ford (, 815-717-3181) to confirm your contact information.

Managing your Spam and Junk folders

For your convenience, we have provided links to tutorials for handling junk mail folders for the most popular email software and providers:

  1. Outlook junk folder
  2. Outlook clutter folder
  3. Gmail spam
  4. & spam
  5. Yahoo spam
  6.  & spam
