  • Important reminders for VHCS parents regarding SchoolCast Rapid Notification

    Each family has been assigned a user name and password in order for you to access the Dashboard feature in the SchoolCast Rapid Notification System used by The Vestavia Hills City School District. Log-in information was sent home to families earlier this school year.

    The SchoolCast Rapid Notification Dashboard is a private and secure web-page where you can add, update, and change your contact information (phone numbers, email addresses, etc.) at any time. You may also review all text messages and emails sent from VHCS using SchoolCast.

    If you need to make changes or update contact information at the SchoolCast Dashboard, please follow this link:

    The most important number you can provide VHCS is your cell phone number listed as your first (priority) number. Cell phone numbers are typically the best and fastest way to reach parents in the event of school closings or any other urgent matter requiring your immediate attention. If you would like an additional person on the account to receive priority messages, please select “Always Contact” for that person as well. Additionally, it is important to check that voice and text are confirmed as “YES” for the cell phones you have listed on your account.

    We also ask that you provide at least one email address. There may be occasions that an email only is sent through SchoolCast for non-emergency situations and without an email address, you will not receive that announcement.

  • Dear Parents, 


    Welcome to East!


    School registration is an important process that all parents, veterans and rookies, must take part in each school year.  This year our entire school district is taking advantage of a technology called InfoSnap that will allow you to complete registration at your own convenience through our website starting on July 26.  At the end of this semester, parents will receive a “Snap Code” which serves as your child’s unique login ID for the registration system. Do not throw away the Snap Code! The code will allow you to “snap” data onto the online forms, which should greatly reduce the amount of time it takes to register your child(ren). Parents of newly enrolled students will receive this code through the mail.  At the conclusion of the registration process, you will be able to pay by e-check, credit or debit card; if you prefer to pay by cash, you will be able to schedule an appointment with your school’s bookkeeper through the registration system. 


    In the event anyone needs help with this new process or does not have Internet access, our school district will be offering assistance on July 26 and August 2 at the Board of Education building on Montgomery Highway. We will also be emailing additional information and instructions on how to use the system before it goes live in July. 


    I would like to thank our school district leadership for implementing this new convenient tool this year, as well as the many volunteers from the PTO who are already preparing for a new school year.
