  • Canvas Parent App

    Parents and Guardians: some changes have been made to the Parent Canvas App and how you would access observing your student’s Canvas information. Ms. Rosen, our School Technology Coordinator is currently working on this with district staff and as soon as it is made available more information will be shared out.  In the meantime this would be a great opportunity to sit down with your student and have them log onto their Chromebook and walk you through Canvas and their courses and have discussion about each of their courses. Every student has access to Canvas through their Chromebooks and have logged on daily. If your student indicates to you that they cannot log on to their Chromebook or Canvas please contact Ashley Rosen, School Technology Coordinator via email at
