  • After-Prom Cancellation Decision

    Posted:  March 28, 2019

    Due to a decline of student attendance in recent years at After-Prom and rising costs, our high school has made the decision not to have an After-Prom when Prom 2019 concludes this school year.  Traditionally, our Parent Teacher Student Organization (PTSO) has organized an After-Prom event. There is an additional student fee that is charged for students who want to attend After-Prom. After-Prom is not included with student dues.  It has become cost-prohibitive to fund an after-prom with the amount of students that attend and the costs to rent a facility and/or attractions. The PTSO has been collecting student feedback about After-Prom to find out areas of improvement in future school years.


    Although After-Prom has been cancelled, students will still have the opportunity to win amazing prizes when attending Prom 2019, taking place on Saturday, June 8, 2019, at 8:00 PM in the Fredericksburg Expo Center.  More information about Prom 2019 will be made available soon through our communication channels.

     

    Our high school will continue to provide student and family events, especially with the decision to not have After-Prom this school year.

  • 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 https://psp.staffordschools.net.

     

    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 https://psp.staffordschools.net.
