Canvas Learning Management System
Help for Parents and Guardians
Welcome to our Canvas Help Page for parents and guardians.
The Horseheads Central School District has adopted Canvas as our Learning Management System (LMS). Canvas allows teachers to provide a personalized learning experience through instructional support, class calendars, messages, notifications, assignments, collaborative activities, and course resources in one platform.
Parents/guardians can set up parent accounts to view assignments, due dates, and other information. However, if you have a child in grades PK-4, the best way to support your student at home is to have your student long in to Canvas using their student email address and password.
Use the links below to learn more about Canvas and to access the parent/guardian link to log in:
Parent/Guardian Canvas Login - To log in to Canvas, use the email you use for your Schooltool Parent Portal account. You will then set up a password when you first log in.
Note: Students and parents/guardians should continue to use Schooltool/Parent Portal to monitor grades.
