    Common Canvas Questions:

    Canvas, a Learning Management System (LMS), is the official online classroom for the secondary schools. Students will be accessing Canvas daily for many of their subjects completing lessons, quizzes, and many assignments within the system. Parents can create Observer accounts in Canvas to be able to follow along with class content and view the progress of their child. Canvas can be accessed on any computer using the links found in the Student and Parent Portal on the school website or through the Canvas Parent and Students apps for Apple and Android devices, downloadable through your phone app stores. 

    Detailed information on many Canvas topics can be easily accessed through any Canvas course using the "Canvas Help" link found on every class home page.
