Frequently Asked Questions
What is Back-to-School Night?
Back-to-School Night is an opportunity for families to hear about the processes and procedures used for each class. If parents need to discuss individual students please email the teacher. There will not be time in these sessions to discuss individual student needs.
Who should attend Back-to-School Night?
Parents and guardians of OLCHS students are invited to attend Back-to-School Night. Students do not need to attend Back-to-School Night, but will need to help families access Canvas, videos, and WebEx call links.
How can parents attend Back-to-School Night?
Teacher videos or WebEx links will be posted to the student’s Canvas pages for all the classes. Parents can watch pre-recorded videos by clicking on the video link or attend the video meetings by logging on with their student’s device or using the link on their own device. If parents do not have a device or have difficulty with the calls, they can use their student’s school issued iPads. Students should be able to assist parents with accessing videos or call setups if needed. Links for the Canvas training and the Student Services/Dean sessions will be emailed out separately in a Back-to-School Night message.
What is Parent Canvas App Training?
Canvas allows parents to have their own Canvas accounts that are linked to the student accounts. Once parents set up a parent Canvas account, they will be able to monitor their student’s progress in the courses their student is signed up for. This training is optional.
Is the Student Services/Dean session mandatory?
No, the Student Services/Dean session is an opportunity to hear what each department is focusing on during this remote learning period. Feel free to watch their pre-recorded videos at any time.
What if family members cannot attend Back-to-School Night?
Back-to-School night is an opportunity for families to connect with a student’s teachers. If you cannot attend please discuss class expectations with your student and continue to check both Skyward and Canvas to monitor student progress. Several staff members will provide pre-recorded videos that can be watched at a later time and date. If you have specific questions about a course or your students progress please contact your student’s teacher through email.
