Parents can connect with ParentVUE

In order to help facilitate constant communication about academic growth and progress, the Oregon Trail School District has announced the opening of ParentVUE Internet portal for elementary school families.

The ParentVUE portal allows parents to monitor their child’s educational progress. Parents of elementary students will have access to attendance records, announcements, grades, assignments and electronic report cards.

The information available, once logged into ParentVUE, is extremely confidential; therefore user names and passwords for ParentVUE were mailed home Friday, Feb. 13.

Parents are encouraged to keep usernames and passwords in a safe location and be careful not to share them with others. If at any point the user name or password is lost, parents or guardians will need to come to the school and show identification prior to a new user name or password being reissued.
