What to Know This Flu Season
Flu and COVID-19 are both contagious respiratory illnesses, but they are caused by different viruses. While it’s not possible to say what will happen, it’s likely that flu viruses and the virus that causes COVID-19 will both spread this fall and winter.

Protect yourself, your family, and your community against flu this fall and winter by getting a flu vaccine. Also follow other CDC recommendations to protect yourself from both flu and COVID-19.

ParentPlus Mobile App: How to Get Started
To set up the ParentPlus mobile app, you should download the app to your device and then register the app with your student's school.

Downloading the ParentPlus App:
The ParentPlus app for iOS and Android is available on the Apple App Store or the Google Play store. To locate the app, you can search for ParentPlus or Rediker.

Register a School in the ParentPlus App:
When you first open the app, you are prompted to enter your PlusPortals username to search for your school and register the app.
Before you can register a school in the app, you must activate your PlusPortals account on that school's PlusPortals website. After activating your account (or changing your password), you may experience a brief delay before the app recognizes your login credentials.

  1. In Username, type the PlusPortals username associated with your account. For parents and students, an account username is an e-mail address; however, for student accounts, schools have the option to assign a username. If you don't know your username, contact your school.
  2. Tap the search icon to look for our school.
  3. Select your school from the list and tap Register. If you have PlusPortals accounts at multiple schools with the same username, all associated schools appear in the search results. Select one school from the list.
  4. When prompted, type your password for the selected school, and then tap Login. You can repeat the registration process for each school that you want to add to the app. If you use the same username and password for multiple schools, each school is registered at the same time. Otherwise, you must repeat the steps above for each school.
