 You can find out which teachers you see by looking at your own schedule. You can find your schedule in StudentVUE or ParentVUE.

  1. To log into StudentVue, make sure that you are logging into the right place first. 
    1. Computer login is here
    2. On the StudentVue app: make sure you choose Prince William County 
  2. For your username type your whole email including the pwcs-edu.org part 
  3. Use the same password you use for Office 365 and Canvas 
    1. If you need to reset your password, you can do it at http://password.pwcsbackpack.com 
    2. If that link doesn't work, you can call 703-791-8826 

To log into ParentVUE here. Most parents already have an account. If you forgot your account information, please follow that link to reset. If you do not have an account, please e-mail the Parent Helpdesk at flms-helpdesk@pwcs.edu for an activation key. Please provide your student’s name in the e-mail requesting the activation key.

Once you know your schedule, you can find the Zoom links by looking in Canvas. For example, if you have Mrs. Huffman for Chorus to start the day, you can go to her class in Canvas and find the link. If you don't see the correct class in Canvas, please email your teacher to get the correct Zoom link.

Once you join the Zoom link, you might be prompted to sign in. If you see that:
