Canvas for Parents
Canvas is Surry County Schools' official Learning Management System (LMS). Our district uses this platform to provide a consistent platform for our students and families. Canvas replaces our former LMS, Haiku/PowerSchool Learning. With Canvas, parents can act as Observers of their child's account, keeping up-to-date their grades, class activities, assignments, class/school announcements, and can communicate directly with their child's teacher(s).
This Canvas Guide for Parents [Spanish Version] will walk you through the steps needed to connect to your child's Canvas account.
