  • Reminder to Secure Valuables and Division Cell Phone and Device Policy

    Posted:  November 18, 2019

    With the holiday season upon us, valuables such as mobile and wearable technology becomes increasingly popular.  Although these devices are permitted in school, following our school division cell phone and device policy, it is important to secure these devices when not in use.  Students are discouraged from leaving valuables in their backpacks unattended.

     

    As a reminder, our high school follows our school division’s cell phone and device policy.  Students at our high school will be able to access their cell phones and devices in the cafeteria, locker area, and hallways during class changes.  Students may use their device at their designated lunch time in the cafeteria. In addition, students may also use their device in any area after school, except while attending tutoring.  Before a student enters a teacher’s classroom, they must silence and put away their device. When classes are in session, students must put away their device, unless directed by a teacher.  This includes hallways while classes are going on. This policy also applies to headphones.

     

    For questions about our school division’s cell phone and device policy, please contact your student’s assistant principal.

  • 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.
