Fort Collins Lambkins

Where Excellence is Expected

Checkin dates for FCHS Students--August 10,11, 13 & 14

Dear FCHS Community,
We hope this email finds you well and enjoying your last few weeks of summer break. We are excited to welcome over 1,900 Lambkin students to Fort Collins High School in late-August. Our support staff has worked hard throughout the summer with updates to technology, extra cleaning, and maintenance of our building, and organizing classrooms in preparation for the 2020-2021 school year. In addition to getting much-needed rest, our teachers, counselors, and administrators have attended trainings, professional development and collaborated on curriculum with peers. We are eager to share our experiences with your child! With the announcement from Poudre School District on Monday, July 27th, related to the start of the school, we have postponed student Check-In dates.

What is the ParentVUE Portal?

The ParentVUE portal allows parent/guardians to view their children’s school information. The information is accessed directly from the student records system Synergy SIS, so the records are always up to date. While the website is accessible over the Internet, access is secured via a logon and password. Parents can only see information about their own children. Parents may only view the information; they cannot make changes to the student records.

How to Access ParentVUE:

  1. Go to http://www.psdschools.org
  2. Click the PARENTS link
  3. Click the ParentVUE button
  4. Click the “I am a parent” link
