Canvas Help?

It is important that you follow your schedule in Focus and NOT what it says in Canvas.  If in Focus you are scheduled for English 1 first period, then you click on your English 1 class in Canvas during first period, not at any other time.  If you are scheduled in Biology Honors second period in Focus, then you click on your Biology Honors class during second period even if it says first period (or any other period).

Please make sure you are completing the Canvas tutorials.  This will save you so much heartache!
