Attendance for Virtual Students - Attendance App

K-4

All virtual students are now required to log-in to Canvas to validate their attendance every day of school. This includes direct instruction days, application days, and academic enrichment days. Please help your student log-in and submit their attendance each day.



1. Open the app called “V attendance” on your student’s iPad. It is black with a gold check mark.

2. Click the red button that says “Log into Google” to sign into the student’s google account. This is the same email and password that students use to log into Clever. Not sure about what this login information is? Email me!

3. You should now be logged into Canvas. Click on the box that says “Period 1”. It is outlined in yellow.

4. It will come up with a question about whether or not your student is attending that day. Click yes.

5. Click submit. You did it!


You may also continue to login through the Canvas app if it has been working for you. Please reach out with any questions! Thanks!

Are you a virtual student having tech issues?

Attendance

For the 2020-2021 school year, Warren Township has transitioned to a new student information system called Synergy allowing our parents and caregivers to have improved access to school information through the parent portal called ParentVUE. We are aware that at his time some students’ attendance records are reflecting students are absent, when in fact they were present. This is mostly the case for our students who are attending school VIRTUALLY on application days or in the VIRTUAL opinion full-time. We want to assure you that teachers are keeping accurate attendance records and that we are working to correct attendance records for all our students.
