Parent Skyward/Canvas Access
SKYWARD PARENT ACCESS
If you are a primary contact for your child, you gain access to Skyward when you register your child for school and provide the school with a valid email address. Login instructions are sent to the address that you provide. One other parent or guardian in your household also will receive access to Skyward automatically if he or she provides the school with an email address.
If one or more of the following applies, please email for access to Skyward:
- Your child lives in your household only part of the time or does not live in your household at all.
- You did not provide your email address to the school.
- You are unsure of what to do to gain access to Skyward.
After you’re registered for access you can log into Skyward here. To reset your password click here.

If your laptop shows that you’re connected to wifi but apps and websites aren’t working, shut off your laptop and start it up again. After you sign in when your browser launches you will see this window pop up. Log into it–your username is your student ID and your password is your regular login password. You have to log into this window every time it appears or most apps/sites will not work.
