Carrots, Broccoli, and Clementines, Oh My!


Prince William County Public Schools is pleased to offer the Fresh Fruit and Vegetable Program (FFVP) at Vaughan Elementary School during the upcoming school year. The FFVP is entirely funded by a grant from the United States Department of Agriculture and is administered by the Virginia Department of Education. 

All students will be offered fresh fruits and vegetables at no charge during a morning or afternoon snack period at least three times each week during the school day. We plan on offering a variety of items to the students, including carrots, broccoli, clementines, tomatoes, kiwi, melons, and many exotic and unique fruits and vegetables!  

This is a wonderful opportunity for your children to receive a nutritious snack while enjoying a variety of fresh fruits and vegetables.

FAQs about Parent Portal


Who is eligible to use the Parent Portal?
 
All students, plus any person who has legal rights to view his/her student’s school records is eligible to receive a user ID and password.   Students will receive their account information from their school. Parents must register for an account.
 
What is the registration process?

On the Parent Portal website click on Request Account and fill out the requested information. The schools must go through a validation process and compare the information you provided against the information in the student information system to validate the information. Once the validation has occurred, an email is sent which contains your user information, however the account is inactive. The person applying for the account must print the email, sign the bottom and take it to the school of their choice. Be prepared to show a photo id.    As in past years, all accounts are issued to an individual, therefore the individual that applied for the account must be the person that signs and presents the email and their ID.

What do I do if I am “locked” out of my Parent Portal account? 

As a security measure, if you have five failed attempts at inputting your username and/or password the system will lock you out for one hour. This protects you from having someone sit down and continually try to guess your password. The system will automatically reset itself within one hour. 

Can I update my child's emergency information online?

Through Parent Portal you can update your child's emergency card.  The SMS administrator at your child's school will be notified electronically that changes have been made.  If you have any questions regarding changes you have made to your child's emergency information, please contact the school office.
