Welcome to CVHS!

Big Red start up and success information in 3 easy steps.

Step one: know your student number and how to log on.

Your CVHS student number is used for email, PowerSchool, and Schoology. The CVHS Counseling office will provide you with your student number.

Chippewa Valley Schools uses Office365 so you will have online access to OneDrive (cloud file storage), Word, Outlook (email), PowerPoint, etc.

Once activated by the district's technology department, you will have a username and password for access to the technology.

Your username is your student number followed by the email extension.

Your initial password is always the last 2 digits of their ID, the last letter of their 1st name and the last 2 letters of the last name.


Jane Doe Student number and PowerSchool Username: 123456789

Example email and username: 123456789@cvs.k12.mi.us

Example Password : 59eoe

This email address is used to log onto Schoology, Office365, and school computers.

The CVHS Media Center is a good place to ask for your username if your counselor doesn't provide it.

If you want to change your school provided password, download the document below.

Student Tech Help Desk Request/Ticket Link:

Submit a ticket at https://studenthelpdesk.cvs.k12.mi.us.

*If you receive a security alert, the page is secure. You can click on advanced options and proceed to the helpdesk site.

If you cannot log into the ticket system please email cvstechhelp@cvs.k12.mi.us

PowerSchool or Student/Parent Portal is your school info source.

PowerSchool is an online portal accessible anywhere on the web that students can log in to and see their grades, scores, attendance, schedules, school bulletin, and more.

We also call it the "student/parent portal" because parents can use their own log-in to look at a student's grades and sign up for School Messenger (getting important phone, email and text messages from our school).

To access the PowerSchool Student/Parent Portal, visit this site: https://ps.cvs.misd.net/public/

Student User Name is your full student number: "example 123456789"

Your password is your full birthdate: two digits for month, two for date, and four for year (example: 01312006).

Parents: you can get your PowerSchool username and password by contacting the CVHS Counseling Office.

PowerSchool is also available as a mobile device app on your phone's app store. Be warned that the PowerSchool app is not as reliable as using the website to login. The counselors are not able to help you troubleshoot problems associated with the PowerSchool app.

Below is a document that further explains how to get onto PowerSchool:

Schoology our online classroom platform.

Schoology is the online place where your teachers can conduct their class meetings, present lessons, post resources, etc. It is also the place where you can communicate with your teacher and upload completed work.

The website is https://cvs.schoology.com/home (there is a Schoology cell phone app available on your app store but you will probably like to work on Schoology using a larger screen with a physical keyboard).

Your user name is your school-provided email address: "example 123456789@cvs.k12.mi.us".

Your password is your school provided password.

By asking one of your student's teachers for an access code, parents can gain access to Schoology.

Here are two documents (one for students and one for parents) that will help you work with Schoology.

Teams is our Zoom...

Microsoft Teams is what we use for video and audio conferencing, chat, and webinars.

Below is a helpful download on how to access Teams within Schoology.

We have a "6 hour school day" even in a virtual setting.

Below is the typical daily schedule. There is about 6 minutes "hall passing" time between periods(hours).

Step 2: Know what's going on.

At CVHS, there is something positive going on all the time. It is essential that a parent sign up to receive phone, email, and text messages through PowerSchool's SchoolMessenger. This is done through the Parent (not the student) PowerSchool Portal. You can obtain your PowerSchool Parent Portal user name and password through the CVHS Counseling Office. Below is a document to help you set up your account to receive messages.

Get news from CVHS Counseling through Remind.com

We use Remind.com to send text messages about important counseling related topics and events. Don't miss important dates or scholarship info. Sign up for your class's Remind Account.

If you haven't already done so, students and parents are welcome to sign up.

Class of 2021 text @de22ake to the number 81010

Class of 2022 text @d9eg2e to the number 81010

Class of 2023 text @6497a6 to the number 81010

Class of 2024 text @7673gc9 to the number 81010

Don't be alarmed if you occasionally receive a Remind text that you have been removed from our lists: This happens because we have to keep our lists under a certain number. We add you to a new group and the text reminders keep coming.
