    Sign up for Canvas alerts!

    I will send these out frequently for missing assignments, upcoming events, test retakes, and reminders about class activities.  Any information entered into Canvas will not be visible by me, but will help keep you in the loop about class events.

    • Log in to dvusd.instructure.com using your students log-in. This should be the website and not the app. Feel free to email me if you don’t know what that is.
    • In the upper right click on the icon that says account when hovered over.
    • Click Settings – You may need to log in again with the same log on.
    • On the far right, add email addresses or cell phone numbers. I will not be able to access this information, only Canvas will use it to send notifications.
    • On the far left, click Notifications.
    • Canvas can go a little overboard with these, so to avoid alert fatigue I recommend you turn them all to X Do not send me anything expect for these items:
      1. Submission Comment – This will tell you when I leave feedback on your students’ work.
      2. Added To Conversation & Conversation Message – This will let you know when I send a message about missing work or updates to your student.
      3. Announcement – Will let you know if an announcement is posted in the class, this is usually about test re-takes or make-ups.
      4. Grades – This will tell you something was graded and gives you the option of also sending the score for the assignment.
