    All school resources will be accessible through our learning management system called Canvas. Canvas can be accessed through a student's LaunchPad, which also houses links and sign-ons to other school resources such as I-Ready, Office 365, their textbooks, and more! You will learn all about them as school moves on!

    Click the button to access LaunchPad and get started with school!



    As we work, we discover issues sometimes. Below are some answers to some common issues we have encountered so far. 


    Tip: Always use the Google Chrome web browser!

    Tip: Using the Teams desktop application gives you more features over using Teams in a web browser. On school issued devices, the Teams desktop app is already installed. You can download the Teams desktop app onto personal devices from within the Web version of Teams. 

    Problem: My child can't log into Launchpad. 

    Solution: 1) Make sure you are using Chrome. 2) Make sure you have typed the username and password correctly. Passwords are CASE sensitive. 3) completely refresh the page and try again.


    Problem: When I/my child clicks Canvas, it asks for a sign in.

    Solution: 1)Make sure you are using Chrome. 2) When logging into LaunchPad in Chrome, you will be prompted to install an add-on called ClassLink Extension. You must install this add-on in order to get to Canvas correctly. (If you are on a school issued device, this should already be done. If not and you are prompted, install the extension)

              Note: You should NOT create an account in Canvas for your student. They already have one. 

              Note: You must get to Canvas through LaunchPad.


    As we come across more common problems, we will add to this list of problems and solutions. If you have an additional problem and your child's online teacher can not direct you to a solution, you can call the Online Learning help desk at (706) 826-1103 or email
