How do I create a parent account in Canvas?

To create a Canvas account, go to the Lincoln Lutheran website, scroll to the bottom of the page and click on Canvas. That will take you to this page:

Click on "Parent of a Canvas User? Click Here For an Account." Then you will see this screen:

Enter your information and the information for one of your children. Note that this is not the same as your parent access key for PowerSchool. It is the actual password that your child uses for their school accounts. If you no longer have this password, ask your child. You can add additional children once you have created your account. After you click "Start Participating", you will see this screen:

You can "Get Started" right away, but it's probably a good idea to log into your email and look for the Canvas email. It should look like this in your inbox:

When you open the email you will see a message that looks like this:

After you "Click here to finish the registration process", you will be taken to this screen:

Note that your username for Canvas is your email address. Enter any password that you'd like. Set your Time Zone and click "Register". That's it.

From now on when you click on the Canvas link at the bottom of the Lincoln Lutheran website, you'll enter your email address and password and you will be able to see your child's assignments, class resources and so forth. Note that grade we are still using PowerSchool for grade information.

If you have another student to add to your account, Canvas has a nice guide on how to add additional students
