PARENT OBSERVERS IN CANVAS

Parents can sign up as an observer in Canvas!  Observers can link their Canvas account to their student’s account so they can see assignment due dates, announcements, and other course content.  Observers can view the course content but cannot participate in the course.  This is a great way to support your student and know what is going on in their classes.  To sign up for a for a Parent Canvas Account go to: https://www.4j.lane.edu/instruction/canvas/  Your student will need to give you their access code, which is found in their Canvas account under settings.

HOMEWORK CLUB IS BACK VIA ZOOM! NOTE: WEDNESDAY SCHEDULE CHANGE

Students may drop in for homework club Monday, Tuesday, Thursday & Friday between 9:30am and 10:30am and Wednesdays from 3:00-4:00 pm.

Students will need to sign in with their preferred first name and official last name to be admitted to the zoom meeting.  Use this link to join a Homework Club:  https://zoom.us/j/96276100824?pwd=WS8yYU1EQnNuMFFPTEFUbnRFS3dFdz09.

TECHNOLOGY ISSUES

* Just a reminder that when in doubt, restart the iPad.  It might be a good idea to do this every morning when starting the day, or powering off your iPad each day when learning is finished.

* Chrome should be your primary way to log in to Canvas.  The App on the iPad is not as functional.
