New Parent Backpack

Parent Backpack works on any device and is mobile friendly. 

To access Parent Backpack, go to https://parents.gcsbackpack.com/signin.aspx and create an account. Please access directions by clicking on Creating a Parent Backpack Account - English Directions or Direcciones en Español
