On May 29th, the district will switch the student information system to the Summer School term. This means that up until that time, you can review final grades in the ParentVUE Report Card tab. After that date, you can access final grade information from the Documents tab or Course History tab in ParentVUE.

Summer Chromebook Use

REMINDER: Only graduating students will return their Chromebooks at the end of the school year. As the end of the year draws closer, please make sure your student can locate the charger (2 pieces), the bag/carrying case, and the Chromebook that was issued to them at the beginning of the year. More details will be shared with students and families through official communications in the coming weeks.

All other, returning (current 9th, 10th and 11th grade) students will retain their Chromebooks during the summer.
