Understanding Student Passwords

Things to Know:

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 Secondary Passwords:

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

Example1234Ab++, if the Student's name was Abigail Babbage.

Note: Using a smartphone to access ParentVUE? Make sure to click 'Additional Information' under 'Student Info' to view the Student PIN.
 

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

Example1234abab, if the Student's name was Abigail Babbage.

Note: Using a smartphone to access ParentVUE? Make sure to click 'Additional Information' under 'Student Info' to view the Student PIN.

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 may need to reach out to your school to get help with resetting it.

Password Expiration

Every year, the District will set Secondary Student passwords back to the default as shown above.

This year it will be August 1st, before students return for the new school year.

Stay informed on these and other changes via emails from the District or by speaking directly with your student's school.  

 

Again, if you have any questions, or something isn't working quite right, please reach out to your school for further assistance.
