  • Remind Service Restored for Verizon Customers

    Posted:  January 26, 2019

    Our high school is pleased to have received, and be able to share with you, news from Remind that Verizon customers will continue to receive text notifications.  An agreement has been reached between Remind and Verizon. There will no longer be a disruption in text message service when a Remind message is sent to Verizon customers.  To view this update, point your Web browser to


    Remind is a free communication service that educators can use to send out mass messages to students and parents/guardians without having to know personal contact information.  The service allows end users to sign-up for an educator’s class through a unique code. The educator is then able to send out Remind messages pertaining to course work and upcoming events.  There are two ways that end users can sign-up for a class or group using Remind: text messaging or the Remind app (for Apple and Android devices). Remind is not unique to our high school and is used by schools around the country.  This service has been approved to be used at our high school and is utilized by many of our educators to communicate information in addition to Synergy Class Websites.


    We still encourage our Remind users to download the Remind app for a better user experience.  To download the Remind app, select your device platform below:

  • Class Websites Mobile App Reported Issues

    Posted:  December 11, 2018

    We have reported to our school division the Class Websites mobile app issues that users are experiencing when utilizing the StudentVUE/ParentVUE mobile app on their device.  These issues are being investigated further.  The issues explained below are division-wide and not just isolated to our high school.


    Reported Issue #1:

    Users of the StudentVUE/ParentVUE mobile app may experience an error message when selecting the Class Websites button.  The user will be unable to view any class websites through the mobile app only.  


    The workaround for this issue is to access your StudentVUE/ParentVUE account from your device’s Web browser rather than the mobile app by pointing your Web browser to


    Reported Issue #2:

    Users of the StudentVUE/ParentVUE mobile app will be unable to view multiple file attachments that are posted by a teacher on the class pages when selecting the Class Websites button for a student’s courses.  This issue is present when a user is able to access the Class Websites button from the mobile app (see Reported Issue #1).  This issue only appears in the mobile app.


    The workaround for this issue is to access your StudentVUE/ParentVUE account from your device’s Web browser rather than the mobile app by pointing your Web browser to
