Synergy Codes and 2017-2018 Registration: The registration process for 17-18 will require you to have an active Synergy ParentVUE login. You will not be able to register your student without having an activated Synergy ParentVUE.
You should have received an email if your account has not been activated. Please stop by the front office to pick up your Synergy parent account activation. You will be asked to present a picture ID since Synergy houses personal and confidential information. If you cannot stop by, please call Kimberley Junk at 619.522.8921 x 3096.
NOTE: If you are in a two parent/guardian household, both of you have your own Synergy ParentVUE accounts. Only one parent/guardian account is needed to login to register a student for school online. You will, however, continue to receive reminder email messages to the email of the Synergy ParentVUE account that has not been activated due to the inactivated status in the system.
