What is Canvas?

Canvas image

Canvas is our Learning Management System. Parents can sign up for a free account in order to view the resources and activities posted in their child’s courses that are available on Canvas. You can access our Canvas by using a browser on a computer, or by installing the Canvas Parent app on your mobile device.

Parent accounts can:

  • Read announcements, view the calendar, and see the course syllabus.

  • Access a list of assignments with due dates.

  • See your child's assignments, but not his/her discussion posts

  • View your child’s scores on assignments in Canvas. Course grades will continue to be published in Lumens.

  • Grades do not necessarily reflect the student's overall class grade if assignments were done outside of Canvas. Contact individual teachers if you have questions.

  • Use the Inbox to contact the teacher.

  • Set up notifications to get emails or texts for announcements, assignments, etc.

  • View the instructional content in the course. 

If you need to create a Parent Account, please look at the guides at the bottom of this page. Please click and visit Canvas's Clarity for Canvas Observers page to learn more about the observer role.
