Unexpected Delay in Being Able to View Student Schedules in StudentVUE/ParentVUE
On behalf of our high school, we empathically apologize to our school community about an unexpected delay in allowing our students and parents/guardians the ability to view student schedules in StudentVUE/ParentVUE. Student schedules were set to be published in StudentVUE/ParentVUE by the close of business on Monday, August 22, 2016. Unfortunately, our high school does not have the administrator ability to allow our school community using the StudentVUE/ParentVUE app to view the published schedules. This adminstrator ability is solely at the district level. We have reached out to our district office so that they can assist us.
Our high school will make a public announcement on social media and our school website when student schedules are able to be viewed. We are hopeful that schedules will be able to be viewed on Tuesday, August 23, 2016.
Students and parents/guardians who have a current StudentVUE/ParentVUE account will have the ability to login to the app to view the student’s schedule after our school district activates our students’ schedules. There is a known issue that if a student forgets their password and reaches out to our high school for a new activation key, that they will encounter an error at account setup. This same error is encountered for parents/guardians who need to setup a ParentVUE account for the first time. We have reached out to our school district for assistance with this district-wide error with StudentVUE/ParentVUE as well. To request an activation key, you may point your Web browser to our StudentVUE/ParentVUE Activation Request Form. Requests will be fulfilled once the error is resolved.
Student schedules will also be made available for pick-up at our high school on Wednesday, August 24 and Thursday, August 25 from 9:00 AM-2:00 PM, in addition to being able to be viewed through the StudentVUE/ParentVUE app after our district assists us.
Again, we apologize about this unfortunate situation.
