Canvas Parent Observer Account Slideshow

This is a brief slideshow that gives you a tour of Canvas using the same information that was provided to JH students to start the school year.  The videos linked on the slides are very helpful.


When looking at the grades page in Canvas, do you wonder what the icons and colors represent? Check out this Canvas guide to help you out.

All JH and HS parents should have a Canvas account created for them using the email address that you have provided in PowerSchool. To activate your account, click on the link in the email, then create your password. Your username is your full email address; your password is one that you create.

 Please contact Dan Marceau, for any of the following:

  • The link re-sent to your email address.
  • You have students in grades 7-12 that you are not seeing when you login to Canvas.
  • Any other problems with using Canvas. If you have questions about a class, please contact the teacher directly. All teacher contact information can be found on this page.

If you already have a Canvas Parent account, you can continue to login using the button above or the Canvas Login under Quick Links. For any 7-12 grade parents that do not have an account yet, you will receive an email in the next week to set up your account with a password. A reminder to set up your account will arrive through the School Messenger system. 

Parents will no longer be able to create an account. Parent accounts will be created using the email addresses in PowerSchool. If you believe your email address is outdated, please contact your school guidance office to update your information.

Parent account training tools will be available on this page in the near future. Your students are likely the best guides to their classes in Canvas--feel free to have them show you around!
