Emergency Card and Contact Update

Emergency Card Update Instructions

Follow the instructions below to fill out your emergency card on the Aspen Parent Portal. An Adobe PDF version of these instructions with screen shots can be downloaded and used by clicking here.

Before you try to login, be sure you have enabled pop up windows from x2.bedford.k12.ma.us. Many computers have more than one pop up blocker installed. Most web browsers have their own pop up blocker and tool bars such as Google or Yahoo also can have their own pop up blocker. If you do not know how to enable pop ups from one web site (x2.bedford.k12.ma.us), then you should allow all pop ups while using Aspen.

  1. Go here.
  2. Log in with the username and password you received in the mail. If you did not receive a username and password, please contact via email.
  3. If this is the first time you have logged into Aspen, your password is expired. You will be forced to create a new password as you login by re-entering the password from the letter sent home and entering a new password twice. If the pop up window to pick a new password does not appear, you have not allowed pop up from x2.Bedford.k12.ma.us in all your pop up blockers.
  4. Your new password must be 6 character minimum and have at least one capital letter and one number. Password are case sensitive.
  5. Once you are logged in, you can start the Emergency Card Update process - click on the initiate button in the Tasks area to the right.

  9. Click next to go to step 2 of the wizard.
