Dear Parents,

The Synergy Parent mobile app, ParentVUE, is now available for use. The app is available in the Apple App Store, as well as the Google Play Store. You must have a current parent portal account in order to use this app. The ParentVUE app will allow parents, who have a parent portal account, to view schedules, grades, see when assignments are due, view graduation requirements, find missing assignments, and view other important student information. An active parent portal account is required to log in to ParentVUE. If you have a Parent Portal account you will use the same log in username (email) and password that you use online. If you need to set up a parent portal account, please contact the school office.
