    Parents, if you’re needing help with how to navigate Canvas, please check out our help sheet.  You can find it by clicking here or visiting our website, and clicking the “Students Parents Community” tab and scrolling to “Canvas - Observing.”  This will help you create a parent account to observe your student, and provide answers to FAQs.
