Virtual Back To School Night / September 10 @ 6:00 pm

This year we will not be hosting our traditional Back To School Night with parents and families. Unfortunately, our campus is still closed. We will miss seeing our CHS families on campus and in person. In place of our traditional BTSN, we will be hosting a virtual BTSN on Thursday, September 10 @ 6:00 pm.

On September 10, you will receive an email by 6:00 pm with a spreadsheet containing pre-recorded video links from administration and each of your child's teachers. Prior to Thursday, please know your child's schedule, teacher names, course names, and period numbers. Teacher videos will be approx. 5 to 10 min. each in length. We will keep the links live for a couple of days in case you are not able to view the videos that evening or would like to go back and watch a particular video again if needed.

Again, we are sorry that we can't host this event live and in person this year. However, you will still receive the important information from teachers regarding academic & behavior expectations, grading, curriculum, etc.

Canvas / Zoom Support Page (Troubleshooting Tips)

Please see the following link in the CHS Counseling page for tips if you are still experiencing challenges with Canvas and Zoom..

Canvas Parent Account Information

The following links give parents and guardians all they need to create a parent account within Canvas and to link that account to a student account. These links are also on our district parent tech support page. We hope our CHS parents find these links useful in supporting student work.

Online Reminders for Students

You must be logged into your TVUSD student Gmail account in order to attend the Google or Zoom meetings. You will only be admitted if you are enrolled in the class.

Students received an invitation to the CHS Student Homeroom course in Canvas. The activities and information will be published there as well on Monday mornings for students to access in case they are absent, to complete assignments, or to access information again at a later date.

TVUSD Student Code of Conduct Online Learning

Students are expected to follow online classroom expectations at all times. (CLICK HERE to Review Student Code of Conduct).

If you are having trouble logging onto the IC Student Portal, TVUSD Gmail Account or have a schedule conflict and need to talk to your counselor on Monday, please click here on the Zoom Office Hours Link, find the correct zoom room, and staff will help you. The Zoom Office Hours will be open on Monday, September 8.
