Cougar Connection

How do you stay informed & keep in touch with other Colina families?

______________________________________________________________________________________________

You need to be registered in the Cougar Family Connection database The Cougar Family Connection is a secure data system used by the PTSA to gather family contact information to help the school and families stay connected via email and the family directory.

  

What do we do with your authorized family information?

  • Email you weekly school activities and events and keep you up to date on PTSA activities.
  • Publish the family directory with only information that you’ve approved.  The Family Directory is a great way to contact other parents and is really handy for carpooling, homework help and just staying connected. 
  • Track PTSA memberships and donations.

 

You do NOT have to be a PTSA member to be in the system.   However, you must at least register your family name and email to become a PTSA member.  You can opt out of the directory or any email communication at any time. 

 

How do you get your family contact information into the system?

  • New Families to the school or families NOT in last year’s directory click on the following link:   

            (link coming soon)

  • Returning families that were in the directory last year:    You will receive an email several weeks prior to the beginning of the school year with a confirmation of your current information.  At that time, you can update your information using our secure online forms. If you don’t think we have your correct email or your email has changed from last year’s directory, please use the directory link on our website and enter your information as a new family. 

 

How do you get access to the Family Directory?

Become a PTSA member.  All PTSA members will receive FREE access our secure online and mobile family directory.  Non members may purchase access for $10. What’s so great about the online directory?   

  • Search by grade, first name, last name and even by street (great for carpooling) and zip code. 
  • Create your own custom list of frequently called families
  • Access the family directory from ANY internet connected device:  computer, smart phone, iPad and even your Kindle Fire!
  • Download and print your own phone lists to keep handy.
