Frontline Health Portal

The ICSD has licensed the Frontline Health Portal to allow families to conduct their children's daily health screenings on a secure, remote platform. On this page, you will find instructions for activating your account and completing the health screening, as well as some helpful troubleshooting tips.

For additional support, please visit Frontline's Help Center for Families & Faculty.

Health Portal Instructions

Parents/guardians can activate their accounts and complete the daily health screening via Frontline's Mobile or Desktop application.
  • Mobile: Go to the Apple App Store or Android Apps on Google Play, search for Frontline Health Portal, and download the app.
  • Desktop: Go to the ICSD Health Portal login page to access the activation portal.
Activate Your Account

After you have downloaded the mobile app or used the secure link to access the desktop app, follow the steps below to activate and access the Frontline Health Portal (download a PDF of the activation instructions or watch a step-by-step demonstration).

  1. Enter your email address and select the blue button, “Send me a temporary password.”

    Note: You will need to activate your account as a family with your personal email address that the district has on file for you in SchoolTool. Instructions for verifying and requesting changes to your contact information in SchoolTool can be found on our Parent/Caregiver Communications page.

  2. Open the email in your inbox, copy the temporary password, and click on the link to go back to the Health Portal login page. (Please check your email’s spam folder if you have not received the email in 10-15 minutes.)

  3. Enter your username (email address) and the temporary password, then follow the steps to update your password and continue to the Portal Terms of Use.

  4. Click the checkbox beside “I have read and agree to the Terms of Use and Electronic Service Agreement” and follow the eSignature instructions (be sure to leave out any spaces between /S/ and your name), then select the “Confirm my agreement” button.

  5. You will be prompted to assign student(s) to your account. Provide your child's last name, student ID, and date of birth, then click “Add this student.”

    Note: Your child's student ID is a 9-digit number beginning with 71000, which can be found next to their contact information in SchoolTool. For assistance, contact your child's school or email ICSD Communications.

  6. Once you've added each of your children, select “I’m done adding students” to complete your account activation.
