Canvas Resources for Student & Parents

The Canvas Learning Management System (LMS) is used by our teachers as an extension to in-class instruction. Teachers using Canvas can post assignments, give feedback, and communicate with students. If your child is absent from school, they should go to their teacher's Canvas page where daily assignments will be posted with instructions. If you or your child has a question about a specific assignment, please email the teacher.

Here are some videos to learn more about how to navigate in Canvas. Please click here.
