  • Partial Lockdown on Friday, March 15, 2019, at 2:30 PM

    Posted:  March 15, 2019

    On Friday, March 15, 2019, at 2:30 PM, the Stafford County Sheriff’s Office advised North Stafford High School to go into a partial lockdown due to a suspicious person in the area.  A partial lockdown allows instruction to continue but prohibits entry and exit to our building. At no point were our students and staff in danger.  Because student dismissal is at 2:15 PM, most of our students were not affected by this partial lockdown. Our first priority is always the safety and security of our students and staff, and we will always err on the side of caution.  The partial lockdown was in place for approximately six minutes, and concluded at 2:36 PM.

  • 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
