A Parent Guide to Student Chromebook Use in LPS

Being the parent of a “Chromebook student” can be frustrating at times. While few students would sit and do worksheets all evening just for fun, it may be that your student DOES want to work on their Chromebook all evening. It may be hard to distinguish homework from entertainment when they are staring at a device screen. Check out this resource [lps.org/go/o9bk] for information and strategies that may be helpful when making these nightly decisions.

ParentVUE

We’re working hard to make Synergy ParentVUE more of a “one-stop shop” for information about your student’s teachers and classes. ParentVUE provides parents/guardians secure access to student grades (secondary), assignments, attendance information, and much more. ParentVUE is also the avenue for parents/guardians to verify student enrollment in LPS. Our school has also worked hard to increase the information that you can find on the Class Websites tab inside of ParentVUE, so check it out!

The District has a goal of ensuring at least one parent/guardian per household has activated and use their ParentVUE account. If you haven’t yet activated yours, please contact the school office for an activation key. Contact DeAnn Karg in the Moore office at 436-1225

More information about ParentVUE can be found on our school home page under Essentials.
