If a student is the sibling of an existing student, you can quickly add the new student while copying shared information, such as family name, family phone number, family address, emergency and medical contacts, and pickup information. Besides saving you a great deal of time entering duplicate information, it prevents you from inadvertently entering a duplicate family.

 To add a student using another student's record
  1. On the Home screen, click Students.
  2. To select the student record, click the student's name.
  3. On the toolbar, click Actions > Related Item > Add Sibling.
  4. The new student's record will contain family, emergency, medical, and pickup information copied from the original student’s record. Enter additional information, and click OK.


If a child’s parents have previously been entered in HeadMaster, you can quickly add a new, related student. When a student is added from the parent record, information such as the family name, family phone number, and family address are copied to the new record. Besides saving you a great deal of time entering duplicate information, it prevents you from inadvertently entering a duplicate family.

 To add a student from a parent's record
  1. On the Home screen, click Parents.
  2. To select the parent record, click the parent’s name.
  3. On the toolbar, click Actions > Related Item > Add Child.
  4. The new student's record will contain family information copied from the parent record. Enter additional information, and click OK.
