I use clear plastic page protectors with sticky tabs attached. Inside of the page protectors I place a sheet with only the student's class number written very large (on the front) and the information sheet (on the back). I then label the sticky tabs with student numbers so that I can find a student's page quickly. After each student's page protector, I place copies of my parent communication log sheets, so that there is one section for communication records for each student and it comes immediately after their information sheet.
Since the tabs and fronts of page protectors have student numbers (and no other info), they can be reused each year. You would only need to throw away and replace the student info sheets and contact logs.
Here are some pictures:
Until then, here is the student information sheet and parent communication log I have created:
