    6TH-12TH GRADE PARENTS CHECK OUT CANVAS

    Parents of Waynesville R-VI students in grades 6 – 12 have a new way to view their child’s lessons, assignments and other class-related content. By downloading the Canvas Parent App, parents will be able to review upcoming and past assignments and check on grades for assignments, quizzes and tests. Parents are encouraged to keep their eSchoolPlus Home Access Center account so that they can review 6-week, 12-week and final semester grades. Official grades that will be kept in permanent files will be placed in eSchoolPlus; however, daily work may be tracked in Canvas. An email was sent to all parents of 6th-12th graders with the step sheets explaining the process.
