New Online Service for Elementary Parents

posted Aug 17, 2015, 4:02 PM by Clear Lake   [ updated Aug 17, 2015, 4:49 PM ]

Parents of Salem-Keizer Elementary students will have access to an online information system called ParentVUE starting this fall.  

Previously, parents of middle and high school students could find information about student attendance, classes, and grades online through a service called Intouch Online.  This fall, ParentVUE is replacing Intouch Online.  

ParentVUE will offer some information for parents of elementary students.  Parents will be able to log in to find information about their student's:
  • Attendance
  • Class schedule (Homeroom, PE, Music, etc.)
  • Immunization records
  • Progress reports when finalized (three progress reports per school year)
  • District calendar

The District will be mailing log in information for ParentVUE to families prior to the start of school.

For more information about ParentVUE, please visit
http://www.salemkeizer.org/parents/parentvue or call the school office.
