  • How do I sign up for a Canvas account as a parent?

  • Having issues finding a student lunch pin? See below for assistance.

  • Classlink Log-In Tips: 
    User name - (Student ID #)
    Password – ##### (Student lunch pin #)
    Some schools have reset Classlink passwords to include shorthand names of the school before the student's lunch pin number (Example: SCMS-student lunch pin # or CHS-12345) so be sure to check your Listserv email for any possible password changes. Be sure to include the dash (-) in-between the school initials and lunch pin.

    If your student does not know their lunch pin, check the Parent Portal and click on "Child Info" then click on "Classified." This is demonstrated in the diagram below.
