“Teasley is taking another step towards being paperless and will no longer be printing report cards for students.  This means that you must have access to ParentVUE to be able to view your students’ grades.  If you do not yet have your ParentVUE Activation Key (which was handed out at conferences in October), please stop by the front office with your photo ID.  We can provide ParentVUE Activation Keys to the parent/guardian on file.  Quarter 2 ends on December 20th, so please get access to ParentVUE before that time.  We appreciate your cooperation and assistance with this process.”
