ParentVue Online Verification Open July 12 to September 6, 2021

LPS Online Verification

Each year parents are required to update their child’s information such as phone number, email address, etc. with their school. Parents update this information through the LPS Online Verification process on ParentVue. Contact our school office at 402-436-1169 or click for  Online Verification assistance.

Some Hints for Online Verification

  1. Online Verification can be done on a smart phone only if you access it through Safari or Google Chrome. It is not available through the ParentVue phone app.
  2. Once you log onto ParentView you will see the Online Registration button in the top right corner to start the Online Verification process.   
  3. Once inside of Online Verification, you can change your address, phone number etc. just like you could on the paper form of census  sheets.           
  4. Final Step, you must click the box “I have reviewed all registration data and verified that it is correct” and press the submit button . You will know the process is complete when you receive an email.     

Need a ParentVue Account

It is Zeman’s goal to have every parent sign up for ParentVue. This only needs to be done once, so if you have opened a ParentVue account, you are good to go. On July 9th, Parents needing to set up a ParentVue account received an email with their activation code. If you need assistance click here for ParentVue Getting Started Documentation. 

ParentVUE is a secure, private website that allows parents and guardians easy access to their students’ real-time information. In addition to the online verification portion, you will be able to track attendance, see class websites, view report cards, and access Special Education documents. Each parent or guardian with educational rights for the child(ren) is assigned an individual ParentVUE account.

Note: If you did online kindergarten registration for your incoming 2021-2022 kindergarten student, you have already set up your ParentVue account. Your spouse, however, will need to set up their own ParentVue Account. All incoming kindergarten families will need to complete Online Verification in July/August. 

Note: Only Parents/Guardians with Educational Rights and Custody can do Online Verification. Educational Rights: Indicates the parent/guardian has rights to make decisions regarding the student. Has Custody: Indicates the parent/guardian has legal custody of the student.

School Supplies – Families Provide

Lincoln Public Schools provides all necessary supplies for students throughout the school year. Families are only asked to provide a backpack and tennis shoes. The backpack should be large enough for students to take a large Tyvek/mailer Wednesday Folder as well as papers to and from school. Tennis shoes will be worn when your student attends PE class.  This does not need to be a separate pair of shoes.  Also, if your child wishes to bring a cold lunch, you will need to provide a lunchbox for your child.

If you would like to donate school supplies, classroom teachers and specialists always welcome donations of items/supplies, which may be dropped off  in the office throughout the school year (please label with teacher name, if desired).

School Supplies – Suggested Donations

  • Tissues
  • Hand sanitizer
  • Unscented dry erase markers
    • (EXPO brand, black chisel-tip & fine tip)
  • Pencils (#2)
  • Glue sticks
Note from Lincoln Public Schools 
 
Traditionally, one of the rituals families participate in as they prepare for the new school year is to purchase school supplies. In accordance with the Nebraska Constitution and state and federal law, Lincoln Public Schools provides a free, public education to all students. This generally means the district provides the supplies needed for instruction at no cost to students. This includes text books, pencils, erasers, crayons, glue, scissors, paper, notebooks, tissues, etc. For this reason, please do not send school supplies for your child’s individual use at school.
 
You are NOT required to purchase any of these items, but you may wish to purchase and donate some items to your child’s classroom. We ask that you do not put your child’s name on any items. All items purchased will be graciously accepted as a donation to the school and will be shared by all students within the classroom. 

Zeman Summer Hours

The office staff are available at Zeman all summer from 7:00 am – 4:00 pm.
