How to Change Email?

Directory and Directory Preferences?
You can view the Directory itself from the Directory Link under the "Our PTA" drop down in the top navigation menu. Parents are still setting up their accounts so new entries will be added daily over the coming weeks. See screen prints below.
This year, we're taking advantage of this powerful new platform to provide an online Directory. You must opt-in to show some or all of your information by following the "Family Information" and "Directory and Publish Preferences" Links accessible after logging into your account. See screen prints below.
Manage your Account
Inviting additional family members
You can add/invite other family members to share/access your account and email communications preferences. Once logged in, go to: “My Account → Update My Account → Access” to access options to add a second parent to your account. See screen prints below.
Email Communications Preferences
When you update your account profile with your child(ren)'s information, you will automatically receive grade level communications, as well as school-wide PTA communications (e.g. Tuesday Mail).
To add/modify your email address for PTA email communications, you can login and update the information in your profile. Once your account is active, you may manage your email preferences directly by logging into the website. See screen prints below.
NOTE: There are TWO communication systems. The Baywood PTA uses the Directory-based preferences that are established on the Baywood PTA website (BaywoodPTA.org). Direct messages from Mrs. Driscoll/Mrs. Robert come from the School District’s messaging system, School Messenger. These are two distinct and separate databases.
If you would like to change the email address for which you receive direct school communications from the Principal's office (via School Messenger), please email your request to Mrs. Laughlin (email@example.com) from your preferred email address, include your child's first and last name, your current email address and the new email address. Only Mrs. Laughlin can change your preference in the School Messenger database. It is best to cc: Directory@baywoodpta.org on your request to ensure that your LOGIN email for the PTA website is consistent with the School’s records as we limit access to currently enrolled families for security purposes.
Baywood Online Directory
When you register for a Membership Toolkit account on BaywoodPTA.org, you will be able to opt-in to include your information in the online Parent/Student Directory. Participation is optional and is only accessible by registered Baywood parents/staff/teachers. Additionally, you control what information you wish to display in the Directory and you can opt-in or out at any time. See screen prints below.
Our PTA website is mobile friendly, so it can be accessed on your computer, tablet, and mobile devices. For the mobile devices, dedicated mobile app is also available for all our registered users. The app includes access to your directory and calendars. The app is available for free in the Apple Store and in Google Play. See screen prints below.
