SETTING UP CANVAS: link provides steps on how to set up a parent account on Canvas

Please be sure to encourage your child to advocate for his- or her- self at school, as this will prepare them for high school.

We will be taking students on a field trip to the high school on February 23rd. There was a blue permission slip sent home last week that needs to be signed and returned to a special education teacher by February 18th. On the day of the trip students will check-in their first hour class for attendance, and then meet down in the lobby by the office. We will be gone 1-3 hours. Teachers are aware of the field trip and are attempting to plan accordingly.
