Virtual High School
VHS is currently experiencing an extremely high volume of phone messages and emails. We are responding as quickly as we can, and we understand that your concerns are pressing. Please know that students have not missed any content in courses to date. Our first day of classes is Friday September 18th. Teachers also understand that many students still do not have completed timetables and will be accommodating students who join late.
Timetables: This week we had to add several new classes in order to accommodate the large number of registrations that came in last week. This meant that we had to reshuffle everyone’s timetable. Some students who had a complete timetable may now find that they have a conflict. If this is the case, please fill out the following form https://forms.gle/TLkD74cayh79BzTt7 and a guidance counsellor will follow-up (please do not submit more than one form, we will get to you!).
In Edsby you will only see first quadmester classes (period one and two). Edsby only refreshes every 24 hours. Changes made today will appear tomorrow. In order to see all assigned classes for the year please click on this link https://classlookup.kprdsb.ca This link will be refreshed every 12 hours.
Logging into Edsby: We are also hearing that many students and parents are having trouble logging into Edsby. Please go to https://studentcreds.kprdsb.ca/ and enter your child’s OEN. If you are still having trouble logging in please contact the Help Desk at 1-877-741-4577 Ex 3001. If the voice mailbox is full, please continue to try again (we are answering messages).
OEN Numbers: Can be found at the top of any previous report card.
Hearing from Teachers: Period one teachers will reach out to students through Edsby with course start up information. If a student was recently added to a class, they should Edsby message their teacher as they will not show in the class list until the following day.
Requests for Technology: If you do not have a device in the home for your child to use, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
Returning to Your Home School: If you are wanting to return to your home school immediately, please contact them ASAP to see if they have room in courses. If you wish to return later in the year, it is advised that you let your home school know in order for them to plan accordingly.
