  • How to Access Canvas for Virtual Classwork

    If your child is absent from school due to potential exposure to COVID-19, they will be expected to complete their classwork virtually until they can return to school.

    All of their classwork and materials are accessible in one place- CANVAS!

    Here is how your child can log on:

    1. Have your child log on to ClassLink using their 8# and password.
    2. Click Canvas. Canvas
    3. Once your child accesses Canvas, they will see my courses! I have 4 courses:
      • ELA with Ms. Mentzer :)                  ela
      • Math with Ms. Mentzer :)                math
      • Science with Ms. Mentzer :)            science
      • Social Studies with Ms. Mentzer :)   SS
    4. From here, students can click each course and they will see their weekly assignments under "Modules." They can also see any announcements I make as well!
