Things to Know:

Resetting Student Passwords

Students are able to reset their password from home but they must have both a PSD device, and access to the Always-on VPN, called Poudre VPN.

1. To reset from home, ensure the computer has already been logged in, then press CTRL + ALT + DEL.

2. You will see an option to "Change a password", click this. 

3. You will need to enter the Old password, then the New password, before confirming the New password. 

4. Press the arrow pointing to the right to confirm and change the password. 

5. You're all set!

For Students using a personal device during Remote Learning, if they have forgotten their password, or are having issues, you will need to reach out to your school to get help with resetting it. If you need further assistance, please reach out to your School.

Default Student Passwords

Default Student passwords in Poudre School District are broken into two groups, Elementary and Secondary password formats.

Let's take a closer look at the differences!

Default Elementary Passwords:

First 4 digits of students' PIN number (found on the Student Info menu in ParentVUE) + first initial first name lowercase + first initial last name lowercase + first initial first name lowercase + first initial last name lowercase

Ex.: 1234abab, if the Student's name was Abigail Babbage.

Default Secondary Passwords:

First 4 digits of students' PIN number (found on the Student Info menu in ParentVUE and StudentVUE) + first initial first name uppercase + first initial last name lowercase + "++"

Ex.: 1234Ab++, if the Student's name was Abigail Babbage.
