Remember when you created that portal log in to register your child/student? You can still log into the Portal at https://portal.graniteschools.org/. Once logged in you can get easily get to Gradebook to check up on the students grades. You can also get into Canvas and see the assignments for your student. No, you can’t actually complete them but you can see them! Only student can submit assignments. If you are not logged in automatically to these sites… your log in is the same as your log in to the portal. You can go directly to these website and log in and bypass the portal.
Honestly the best way to learn to navigate these sites is to ask your child – they know how! Or, at least better by now… Be sure to get these features though…
In Gradebook go to the bottom left and click on “Miscellaneous” and get the “Alerts”.
In Canvas, click on your name at the top right. And then “Add a contact method”. Include your cell number and an e-mail that you do check.
Then click on notification on the left side. Choose what you want to be notified about. Two things tho…
- The text messages are limited characters. So I get both a text and an e-mail.
- If you end up getting too many… go back in and change your notifications. Get a lot to start with then go back in and remove some if you need to.
You DO NOT need to set this up under the student account. YOU HAVE YOUR OWN account!
