Canvas Registration

Hello Friends and Families of North Eugene High School,

 

I sincerely hope this message finds you safe and well.  We are excited to be starting school on Monday, September 21st, and look forward to once again interacting with your students even though we will not be on campus as usual.  In the meantime, the information below is being shared to ensure a more smooth start to the school year.  Thanks for taking the time to read.

 

The first thing to be done is to make certain your student(s) can log into their 4J email account.  If your student has forgotten their password, or it is not working for whatever reason, please fill out this form.   A staff member will contact you in short order with a temporary password and directions for how to change it to a permanent secure password.  This year, more so than in previous years, it will be important for students to easily access their district-issued email address as the login credentials for that account will also allow students to access Canvas, the district’s Learning Management System.

 

Once students have verified 4J email access, the next thing students need to do is access their Canvas account.   In order to do so, students will need to navigate to the Canvas Registration page, click on the Canvas for Students icon and follow the directions for establishing their Canvas account.  Once established, students should see the classes they are scheduled to take in the coming term.  We understand that some students may need to make schedule changes.  Families should take this opportunity to set up their Canvas accounts as well.  Doing so allows you the ability to more easily track what is happening in the classroom, check on student progress and sign up as an observer.  Families can register as a course observer from the same Canvas Registration page where students registered by clicking on the Canvas for Parents icon.  You can find more information about the role of an observer and additional directions for setting it up by clicking here.

 

Finally, students should enroll in the Canvas 101 for Students course.  You can do so by navigating to this link and following the instructions.  I would recommend that students and families take the time to go through the course.  It should take two to two and a half hours to complete the entire experience so plan accordingly.  That may seem like a long time but it will be invaluable for your students as they start the year.  The benefit for students is that they will learn to navigate Canvas, explore communication tools we will frequently use, learn how to submit assignments, and generally become comfortable with this learning management system.  If students run into problems or become confused, Don’t Worry!   Time will be spent in the initial days of the school year making sure everyone knows what they need to know in order to make the most of their classes.  I would highly recommend that family members providing support to students during comprehensive distance learning go through the Canvas 101 course as well.  This will ensure you are familiar with the Dashboard, how to navigate to different areas of the system, and generally feel more confident when trying to problem solve and monitor progress over the course of the term.  We will be scheduling help sessions in the first few weeks of the school year and those dates/times will be sent to you as the time approaches.

 

We understand many of you justifiably have questions about this school year.  In an effort to answer many frequently asked and some predicted questions, we have developed a Family Handbook for Distance Learning.  There are both English and Spanish versions attached to this message.  More than providing helpful information about Canvas, there is also more general information about attendance expectations, grading, schedules, and resources designed to help everyone make the absolute most of the coming term.  No doubt there will be questions not answered by the Handbooks.  Please know that we are available to answer your questions whenever they come up.

Hola amistades y familias de North Eugene High School,

 

Espero que se encuentren bien. Estamos contentos de comenzar la escuela este lunes 21 de septiembre y de poder comenzar a interactuar con sus estudiantes aunque no van estar en la escuela. Mientras, la siguiente información se esta compartiendo para que el comienzo de la escuela sea mas fácil. Gracias por tomarse el tiempo de leerlo.

 

 

Para prepararse, asegúrese de que su estudiante tenga acceso a su correo electrónico de 4J. Si su estudiante no tiene acceso complete éste formulario. Alguien de la escuela se comunicará con usted. Este año, más que antes es importante que su estudiante tenga acceso a su correo electrónico del distrito para tener acceso a Canvas, el Sistema de Aprendizaje del distrito.

 

Cuando su estudiante tenga acceso a su correo electrónico de 4J, necesita acceso a CANVAS. Haga clic aquí y siga las instrucciones para Canvas for Students. Cuando termine, su estudiante verá sus clases para este semestre. Si su estudiante necesita hacer cambios de clases, por favor llama a la escuela. Las familias también deben inscribirse en CANVAS. Esto le permitirá ver el progreso de su estudiante en las clases. Siga las instrucciones para Canvas for Parents.

 

Finalmente, su estudiante debe inscribirse en la clase Canvas 101 para Estudiantes y Familias. Puede hacer clic aquí y seguir las instrucciones. Es importante que su estudiante tome el curso. Esto les permitirá aprender Canvas. Debería tardar entre dos a tres horas. Entendemos que esto pueda ser mucho tiempo pero es importante pare el comienzo del año escolar. El beneficio es que su estudiante va saber como navegar es sistema de Canvas.  Si su estudiante tiene problemas o se confunde, no se preocupe. Los maestros dedicarán tiempo la primera semana para apoyar a los estudiantes y repasar lo que necesitan saber. Al igual recomendamos que los miembros de la familia que van ha estar apoyando a sus estudiantes tomen el curso de Canvas 101. Esto le ayudará a aprender el sistema. Habrá sesiones de ayuda las primeras semanas de clases. Le enviaremos más información sobre fechas y horarios.

 

Entendemos que van a tener preguntas sobre este año escolar. Incluimos un manual en español e inglés que va contestar varias de sus preguntas, Manual de Aprendizaje a Distancia para Familias (Family Handbook for Distance Learning). Incluye información sobre calificaciones, horarios y más. Si tiene preguntas, llámenos.
