Student Data Verification to Launch for 2019-2020

The District is excited to roll out a new online verification process this summer. LOSD parents will be invited to log into ParentVUE and review and update important information for their students for the 2019-20 school year. The District will save money by not printing and mailing paper verification forms for all its students. Look for more information in the coming weeks.

Important Information Regarding Student Passwords

All students' passwords will automatically change over this Memorial Day weekend between Friday, May 24 and Monday, May 27. The first letter of each student's current password will change to a capital letter.


For example, if your student's current password is apple12345, it will automatically change to Apple12345.


Passwords will be changing at various times thoughout the weekend. So, if your student tries to log into a device or Google account with his or her old password and it doesn't work, he or she should try the new version, with the first letter capitalized. Students and teachers have been notified directly about this change.

One Time Transfer Request for Oak Creek Resident Students
