Please find some helpful links, instructions and suggestions for setting up accounts that might help you to navigate FCPS and Gunston digitally.
ParentVue SIS and FCPS 24/7 Accounts
One very important set up for parents is the username and password for access to SIS and 24/7 (sometimes referred to as Blackboard.) An account can be set up for each parent who provides an email during registration. Parents will only need one account to access all their FCPS students and it will follow them through high school.
Parents can set up accounts as soon as they get activation information from FCPS. This information is sent by mail to all newly registered families. Parents can also contact Gunston for their activation information. Email Elizabeth Hurst at firstname.lastname@example.org for information or questions or look here.
Students will automatically have THEIR own logon information for FCPS 24/7 (different from the ParentVue logon.) Parents can access a wealth of information from these two places such as emergency card updates, bus stops, grades and assignments. The username and password, once setup, will allow access to either of these sites. They are easily reviewed on cellphones and tablets too.

Here Comes the Bus App
This optional app can added to cellphones or tablets to keep track of where your child's bus is located. It can help provide notice of when bus is approaching your stop.
In order to set up this app, parents will first need to set up their 24/7 SIS ParentVue accounts. The FCPS code is 28982
Gunston Gazette Newsletter
The Gunston Gazette Newsletter arrives by email via News You Choose (sometimes known as Gov Delivery.) It is also posted on the website once it is sent.

You can easily unsubscribe from the link at the bottom of any newsletter or by logging into News You Choose. Find the link to News You Choose on the Gold Bar on the Gunston Website.
