Accessing Your Child's Google Classroom

If you are looking for support to access your child's Google Classroom, please see the attached document below with step by step directions. Please check your child's login, before the weekend, to be sure you have the password and are able to login successfully. If you find that you are having difficulty, please use our tech ticket to request assistance.

Locating Your Child's Email and Student ID

There are two ways to find your child’s information as we begin our year in comprehensive distance learning:

  • Through the ParentVUE system which can be found in the top right corner of our school website. ParentVUE is part of our school information system and replaces family link. Your username should be the email address of the person who registered your child for school. Even if you do not have a password yet, you can use this username to set a new password. Once logged in, you can located your child’s district provided email address, which will give them access to the suite of google tools they will need to use to access their google classroom and login to their Chromebook. For new students to our school, their default password will be the letter P and then their individual 6 digit permanent id. This too can be found in ParentVUE. For students returning to our school, it may be possible they have changed their password from this default.

  • Another option is to simply call our school. While we want all of our parents to become fluent with ParentVUE, this is an option if you find yourself struggling with logging in or frustration with the technology sets in.

Please complete Online Registration (OLR)

We ask that all families complete Online Registration for the coming school year. This is available now on our new software, Synergy. This new portal for parents, called ParentVUE, replaces Family Link. For returning students, this is a pretty simple process to confirm certain student information.

To complete Online Registration, parent-guardians are asked to go to this link. Your username is the same you used for Family Link. You will need to set a new password. To do so, click the "Forgot or Need to Set Password" button on the login page.

If you are new to the district and need to register your student for the school year, please select "New to District - Click Here" on the login page and complete the registration.

Technology Support

Please log on to the device to make sure everything is working properly before September 8th.

If you have trouble that you believe is related to your child’s account, please feel free to get help here.

If you believe the issue is the device itself, please sign up for a time slot to return your Chromebook. We will provide your student with a replacement Chromebook.

If you need a Chromebook for your child, we have one for you! Chromebook distribution will take place at Boones Ferry Primary on Monday, August 31 through Friday, September 4th. You can sign up for an appointment here. We will need to get two forms from you; they will be available for you to fill out during your time slot, or you will also receive the links in your email confirmation when you schedule your time slot so you can print them out and complete them at home, then bring them during your time slot.

Suggested school supplies have been posted!

School supply lists are now posted on our website. You can find them under the "For Parents" tab as well as Quick Links on the homepage. If you have any difficulties with gathering supplies or need assistance please fill out the request form online (available in both English and Spanish) and we will be in touch with you.

Meals Are Again Available and Free for All Children Aged 1-18


Just like last spring, all meals will be FREE for children under 18 years of age. This will continue through the end of December.

NEW THIS YEAR, families will need to order meals ahead of time ONLINE through the Nutrition Services website. Families can view the online menu and set up an account by visiting the Nutrition Services website. Simply click on the menu for your level (primary, middle, or high) and when you’re ready to place your order click ‘Online Ordering’ in the blue box at the top of the screen. Families will be prompted to create an Online Order account the first time they go to order.

By ordering online the day before, we will be able to have your meal ready for you upon arrival and cut down on waste.

Pre-ordered meals will be available at the following schools for "grab and go" pick up outside school buildings between 10:30 am-12:30 pm every Monday-Friday when school is in session. Families can pick up one breakfast and one lunch per child per day at any school locations regardless of attendance.

The menu is available on the Nutrition Services District website. We will have a rotation of cold entrees and entrees that can be warmed up at home to create hot meals.

**If your student has an approved, documented allergen through the nursing staff and Nutrition Services for us to accommodate, please let the staff know at your pick up location you will be needing a meal made so we can have it ready for you.

This institution is an equal opportunity provider.
