Skyward and Canvas Expectations

Be respectful, Be responsible, Be safe

SKYWARD Grading program:
Parents and students should regularly check grades and messages sent through the grade book messaging program.  Comments are often included next to assignments.  Alerts can be set up for parents.  Passwords can be obtained through the school office.  Students and parents have separate logins.

Canvas:
Canvas is used to create a community of learning for students, parents, and teachers.  Canvas allows all stakeholders to have one place to go for information and to safely collaborate.  This is also where homework will be posted daily. Canvas may show grades, but is not considered the grade book.  All permanent grades will be found in Skyward.

Absences:
ONE DAY: Science meets every other day, therefore if a students is absent for a class they are expected to see me the next day to check in and turn in homework or get the homework even though they don't have science that day.
MULTIPLE DAYS: Students should email me for homework or arrange to have it picked up in the office. Much of the information is available online and recorded on the homework calendar.
VACATIONS: Students should email teachers and collect homework . Homework is due when they return from the vacation. If topics covered are not able to be self taught, then after school time will be expected to get caught up when the student returns.
LONG TERM PROJECTS/TESTS:  These dates are given to the student ahead of time and time is given to write down in the assignment notebook.  Being absent one day does not mean the project or test dates are changed unless a significant amount of learning has been missed.
