HCPSS is excited to share a new mobile app, Canvas Parent, designed to help parents/guardians monitor their children’s progress on the go. The app allows parents to check grades, review assignments and events, view course announcements, see a weekly calendar, and set student activity alerts, such as missing assignments or grades above or below a set threshold. Parents can easily swipe between profiles to view information for multiple children. The Canvas Parent app requires parents to go through an easy one-time account set up. Parents/guardians will need their child’s login credentials during initial set up to create the connection.
Parents can use the Canvas Parent app on all iOS and Android devices. HCPSS will provide a Canvas Parent Android Guide and the Canvas Parent iOS Guide with complete details. Please note that the Canvas Student app (red/orange icon) is no longer supported for parents/guardians, who now should use the Canvas Parent app (blue icon). Grades and assignments are available for middle and high school levels only.
