Get Ready: Login to Virtual Paragon and Set Up Your Account

  • Newton North High School uses an on­line parent conference reservation system called Virtual Paragon.

  • The school’s master password is: Walnut16

  • If you have not done so already, please create your own account. Choose a user name and a password. If you created a user name and password last year please use those log in credentials. For more explicit directions on setting up a Virtual Paragon account please see the “Parent Directions” attached to this email and posted on the NNHS website.

  • If you need to add an additional student to your Virtual Paragon account please see the directions attached to this email.

  • It is crucial that you set up your account, and get it ready, by 11/9/17. This will ensure that you can call the main office and get help before the system goes live.

Phased Sign-Ups

  • To make sure that all parents have the opportunity to see teachers, there will be two phases to the

    sign­up process.

  • During the first phase of sign­ups, from 6pm on 11/13 until 6pm on 11/16, you may only schedule a maximum of 3 teacher conferences per child.

  • ○ If you schedule more than 3 conferences per child, we will randomly delete the extra conferences. Please don’t break the rules. 3 conferences maximum per child. 
  • During the second phase of sign­ups, from 6pm on Thursday 11/16 until 8am on Monday 11/20, you may sign up for a maximum of 3 additional conferences. Total conferences CANNOT exceed 6 per child. Reserve only one 10­ minute slot per teacher.
