Dear Gibson Elementary School Parents,

In our continuing efforts to improve communication between our schools and parents, our district has moved to a new online gradebook and communication tools that are integrated with our student information system. It will allow parents just-in-time viewing and information about student assignments, test scores, and progress, and will allow you to better manage your personal contact preferences.  Our district is confident that these new tools will strengthen our home-school partnership.
  • Parents will have to create their own Aeries account. An email or letter was mailed home with your own unique verification code that you will need in order to set up your account for the first time. 
  • If you misplaced/did not receive the district letter or you have changed your email and did not receive the district instructions, the front office staff have your verification code, but you will need to come in person to confirm your identity. 
  • If you have your child's student ID number, the verification code and your own personal email, you are ready to create a parent account.   Here is Parent Portal Account Creation Handout  to walk you through the process.  
  • If your home phone number has changed and you have not contacted your child's school site with the change, the account process may give you an error message until the school database has been updated. 
On the WJUSD webpage at, videos and information will be available for parents who need support in setting up accounts. If you’re having problems creating your Aeries Parent account, contact your school office.
If problems persist, contact Janet Garcia at (530) 406-3259 or email at

How to create a parent portal account:
Please visit for step by step directions and a video with detailed instructions on how to create a parent portal account.

I don’t have a computer. How can I access this information?
Aeries is fully accessible via any internet connected device, including smartphones and tablets. Additionally, each school site has a kiosk computer in the office which is available for parents to use.

I have more than one child at different schools in the District. Do I have to create multiple accounts?
Parents can choose to setup an account individually or have one account for their family. Using the unique code per student. All children can be linked to the same parent portal account.

Linking to additional student: Once you have created an account for one student in your family, you may link to your other children through Aeries Portal by clicking on the CURRENT STUDENT drop down menu selector at the top right hand side of the homepage and click the link to “Add Additional Student Not Currently Listed”. You will need to provide a separate Permanent ID number, telephone number, and VPC for each additional student. One final note: Be sure that the browser being used is set to refresh each page with each visit so that the most recent data is always what your computer displays.

My child lives in two different households where each parent retains educational rights. Will each parent get separate VPC codes?
At this time in Aeries, there is no way to create multiple logins to view a student. It is recommended that both households determine how this login will be shared.

Do parents need to create an account every year?
No. This is a onetime process. If you have another child that enters the district, you will be able to add them to your existing account.

What if I see incorrect information on my student’s account (i.e., a phone number or address)? What if I move during the school year?
The information that you see in the Portal is what the school has currently on file.  If you see contact or address information that is incorrect or needs to be changed due to a recent move, contact your child’s school. School office staff will make changes to phone numbers or address (with proper documentation).  Once those changes are made in school Aeries, they will show in your portal account.

Can I set up email notifications for regular updates?
There is the ability to set up a weekly notification about student progress in the options link in the Aeries portal.
