Friday Requirements

Student requirements for Fridays are changing. Every student is required to attend school on Friday unless their teachers let them and their parents know that they do not have to attend. Students that are required to attend on Fridays will be required to stay until their work is complete.

No School on Friday, March 10th

There will be no school for students on Friday, March 10th due to teacher in-service.

Canvas Parent App

Kingsport City Schools has begun to implement Canvas as our learning management system. Teachers have most, if not all their coursework in Canvas. To view your student's grades in Canvas you will need to download the Canvas Parent App.

Canvas Parent enhances the potential for parents to engage in their children's education. Parents can review upcoming or past assignments, check on grades, and receive course announcements.

Canvas Parent can be used by anyone who creates an account, has been added to Canvas with an observer role, or has signed up as a parent using the web browser.

Access to Canvas Parent is managed by the student's institution.

Parents can use the Canvas Parent app on all iOS and Android devices. View the Canvas Parent Android Guide and the Canvas Parent iOS Guide.


View Student Courses and Grades


The Courses tab displays the list of courses where their students are enrolled. For each course, parents can see course grades, the syllabus, and assignments and events. Grades display according to the course grading scheme.


View Student Assignments and Events

Assignments and events can be viewed by course or week. Parents can set reminders for a specific assignment or event, which are sent to mobile devices as push notifications.


Set Alerts for Student Activity

The app settings allow parents to set alerts for specific assignment and grade activity. Alerts are displayed in the Alerts page in the app.
