Canvas and Instructional Information
FCPS has adopted Canvas as the Learning Management System (LMS) for middle and high schools. Canvas is a much more robust and complete program to allow students to access lessons and curriculum. Canvas has a parent app that can be used to review upcoming or past assignments, check on grades, receive alerts for student activity, and communicate with teachers.
FCPS has training resources available for students and family members at www.fcps.net/Page/16307.
Students will access each of their classes through Canvas, where teachers will post daily lessons and assignments. During the Crawford Cruise drive-thru orientation math and language arts textbooks and workbooks will be distributed, along with chromebooks. Instruments for students scheduled in band and orchestra classes will also be checked out during that time. We are not requiring specific school supplies at this time, however, we will be handing out a few basic supplies during Crawford Cruise to help students during distance learning. When a date for in-person learning is determined, we will communicate any school supplies that are needed
