Student Password Expiration

Students your Computer/Microsoft/StudentVue password expires 1 year after it was created. If you have an expired, or soon to be expired password a notification is automatically sent to your office465.pwcs.edu Microsoft email. Additionally, I (Katherine Fielding) will send you an email to your school Gmail notifying you of the upcoming expiration and the action you should take. Keeping your computer password active is important to be able to access StudentVue.

Interim Reports (Now Digital on ParentVue)

Just a reminder there will no longer be paper interim reports sent home, only end of quarter report cards. This means access to ParentVue is extremely important. If you have not received an email with an activation code you can contact your child's administrative secretary and they can help you get your activation code and make sure you have a correct email in the system. The secretaries assignments are listed below:

Special Education/504 Students: Mrs. Darwish darwiswy@pwcs.edu
A-Dep: Ms. Guevara
guevarcm@pwcs.edu

Der-Kn: Ms. Johnson johnsondr@pwcs.edu

Ko-Ram, and Ran-Z: Ms. Spoone spoonebl@pwcs.edu

Tech/Podcasting Club

An interest meeting for the Tech/Podcasting Club will be held on Sept 19 in Password Paradise in the library.  Join Google Classroom code cq0dj0 if you are interested in joining.

StudentVue Login

Student passwords expire each year. Make sure to reset your password yearly.

Here is a video I made about some issues I have seen when students try  logging into StudentVue

Google Classroom Guardian Summaries

Guardians/Parents do not get direct access to Google classroom, however, you can receive weekly Guardian Summaries.  To receive the summaries contact your student's teacher so they can send you an invitation.  You can read more about Guardian Summaries in this FAQ by google.

If you would like real-time access/view of the google classroom we recommend you sit down with your student and log in together.

Google Classroom Phone App

You must have a passcode set on your phone for the Google Classroom app to work. That is new this year, added security imposed by Google.  

If you are getting a warning that you don’t have access to google classroom because of your “domain administrator” completely remove the google account from your phone, and then re-add the account. Deleting/reinstalling the app will not solve this problem.

Back to School Night

StudentVue Login Issue

Could you get into StudentVue and now you can’t? That means your computer/Microsoft/StudentVue password expired.  Passwords expire after a year, so if you reset your computer password at the beginning of the last school year you need to go to a computer and make a new password for this school year.

If you are not having this issue you should log into https://toolbox.pwcs.edu on a school computer and check to see when your password will expire and create a new password before that date.

Office 365 Downloads

Each student gets 5 Office 365 downloads.  Students should go to office365.pwcs.edu and log in with their username@pwcs-edu.org and password (Same as StudentVue).

To install click “Install Office” which you see here in the top right corner of the screen.

Shows the apps as they are layed out in the Offiec365 screen.

It should be said that as soon as a student un-enrolls or graduates the product becomes inactive and will no longer work on your machine.

ParentVue

Welcome to the new school year.  This year we have a major change as ParentPortal is now The Hub. If you have not received an email with an activation code you can contact your child's administrative secretary and they can help you get your activation code and make sure you have a correct email in the system. The secretaries assignments are listed below:

Special Education/504 Students: Mrs. Darwish darwiswy@pwcs.edu
A-Dep: Ms. Guevara
guevarcm@pwcs.edu

Der-Kn: Ms. Johnson johnsondr@pwcs.edu

Ko-Ram, and Ran-Z: Ms. Spoone spoonebl@pwcs.edu

StudentVue

StudentVue is also live. Students should log in with their @pwcs-edu.org email address. Their password is the same as their computer login. I have created a worksheet that should help students navigate their school accounts. Students can come to my office this week if they need assistance with their account.

Student Email

Students, whenever you email a teacher or administrator you should use your verified student account. Please make sure to email teachers from your Google (@woodbridgeshs.com) or Microsoft (@pwcs-edu.org).  If you email from your personal account teachers can’t be sure you are who you say you are.  Your confidential academic emails should happen in your professional school accounts.
