Elmonica Families,

We hope you and your children have had a successful week connecting students to school. Our staff has had a crew working to make and receive phone class to work through all of the technology and equipment challenges. As the days go by, more and more students are engaged and learning. We are off to a great start to the school year.


Accessing School on Chromebooks / iPads

  • Malfunctioning Chromebooks and iPads can be exchanged by appointment. Please email, shd@beaverton.k12.or.us.
  • Students should be using school equipment for best school support and function of the applications.
  • You can retrieve your child's password in ParentVue. All parents should have a ParentVue account to access all student records and complete the enrollment/verification process.
  • If you have never established a ParentVue account, please call the school office for an activation code.


Technology Needs & Problems


  • Please contact the Student Help Desk if your child still needs to exchange technology.
  • Email or call the Student Help Desk. Thanks for being patient with our long wait and call back times right now. There are only a handful of technology support staff for 40,000 students.

School Meals

Our Nutrition Services department has developed a plan for providing meals during Comprehensive Distance Learning (CDL). We have just received waivers from the USDA which allow any child (age 1-18) to pick up free meals.


  • Parents or guardians may pick up meals for students who are not present.
  • Meal pickups will occur two days per week: Tuesday (2 days of food) and Thursday (3 days of food) from 11 a.m. to 12:00 p.m.
  • Meals will be packaged with breakfast and lunch together.
  • Masks must be worn by anyone picking up meals.
  • Meals can be picked up by driving up to the cafeteria doors @ Elmonica.
