Getting Started

Parents/legal guardians of new LCPS students may pre-register their children for the current or next school year (available in January/February). Students previously enrolled in an LCPS school may also be pre-registered. Once parents/legal guardians submit the pre-registration, parents must call the school to schedule a face to face meeting to finalize the registration. You will need to bring all required paperwork to this meeting.

Online Pre-registration Highlights:
  • Parents and legal guardians complete all pre-registration information online from any internet enabled computer.
  • Parents may save their work and return to finish later. Completing the pre-registration in one sitting is not required.
  • Available for current LCPS parents and parents new to the District.
  • The portal is available in both English and Spanish.
  • Parents/legal guardians must pre-register all their children new to LCPS at the same time.
  • Pre-registration screens guide parents/legal guardians and ensure that all screens and fields are completed.
  • Students will be pre-registered at their zoned school. Parents may monitor the status of the pre-registration after it is submitted.

Online Pre-registration Data & Security

The ParentVUE Online Pre-Registration portal has a number of features designed to make the system safe and secure for maintaining the registration information. First, the URL begins with https://, rather than the standard http://. This indicates that the information contained on that page is secure and encrypted. This is similar to what you would see in the URL for online banking or any e-commerce site.

The primary method for keeping the ParentVUE Online Pre-Registration portal secure, however, is to keep your password confidential, and to always logout of the system.
Although the website is accessible over the internet, access to your students’ information is secured by a user name and password. Parents can view pre-registration information for their children only. They cannot access the records of other families. The application is hosted within LCPS – no third party vendor is hosting this.

Navigation & Data Entry

The ParentVUE Online Pre-Registration portal goes through an address validation procedure as the home address is entered. The green checkmark that appears indicates that the entered address is within an LCPS attendance zone. It is important to enter the appropriate information into each field so that the address may be validated.

Common issues to avoid:
  • Entering the street type (Ct., Pl., Ave., etc.) in the Street field; this part of the address should be entered in the Type field.
  • Entering direction (S, SE, N, NE etc.) in the Street field; this part of the address should be entered in either the Direction or Post Direction fields.
If your home address fails to validate, you may not use the ParentVUE Online Registration portal. Please contact your zoned school to schedule an appointment to register your child. Visit the LCPS Registration page to download registration forms or obtain them from your zoned school.
If your family lives in an apartment/townhome building whose address contains a building letter or number designation, the building letter/number (including the dash) should be entered in the Street field, not the Street Number field. Please see the following examples.

28-2 Fort Evans Rd NE #202, Leesburg, VA 20176

28-2 Fort Evans

125 F Clubhouse Dr SW #1, Leesburg, VA 20175

125 F Clubhouse

If you cannot enter a valid home address, please contact staff at your child's zoned school.
Current and graduated LCPS students will appear in your list of students to enroll. You must not include them in the pre-registration process. Click on the Exclude button (not Delete) next to each of your children who are currently attending LCPS or have graduated to remove these students from the pre-registration process. This does not change their enrollment or delete any data held by LCPS for the student. It only removes their data from the pre-registration “packet” you submit. Add your new student to this list by clicking on the Add New Student button and continue through the process.
It is not necessary to add yourself or spouse as an emergency contact. You should add the information for the non-registering parent in the Parent/Guardian screens, and not enter him/her as an emergency contact.
You should select all the checkboxes on this screen unless you have legal documentation you can provide to the school that indicates otherwise.
If you have not yet submitted the Online Pre-registration, click on the Review button on the final Review/Submit screen to access the Print button. You will then be able to print the submitted information.
