Parents - need your Schoology code? 

Ask any of your teachers or office staff for your parent Schoology code. Schoology parent codes are unique for each student. Parents sign up one time with the student code and it is attached to that student for their duration with SVSD.  They do not need a course code or to join individual teacher’s courses.


These tips keep the laptops working at their best performance:

-Turn off (shut down) the laptop each night.  This is important. 

-Login each morning to Classlink for apps to download updates and perform their best.

-Make sure you have your charger and fully charge the laptop each night.

-Do not lose the charger, stylus or case you were given with the laptop.  Items not returned to SVSD will incur fines.


Replacement parts: My student lost their stylus or charging cord. What do I do?

Please contact the CKMS Librarian, Margie Bardsley for a replacement.  She has the same ACER stylus and charger in stock that came with your student's device - ready for purchase at cost.  To purchase, a "fine" will be added to your student's online payment account for the item(s) they are replacing.  The stylus is $42.40 and the charger is $17.40.  

Please note:  If you do not replace these lost items, you will be fined for them at these same prices (our cost) when you return your device to SVSD.
