To all students and their families,
My name is Mrs. Dannis and I am so excited that you will be joining the Deer Valley Online Academy for virtual learning, through Canvas, as you continue through school year! Canvas is a great mode of virtual learning, where you will have access to lessons, zoom, activities, resources, grades, and more! The link to Canvas is https://dvusd.instructure.com/ and be sure that you will be in consistent contact with me to make sure your child succeeds. If you are having any issues with the technology, you can always go onto https://www.dvusd.org/edtech for assistance.
On Canvas, the students have a list of courses and when you look into each course, you will see a tab called modules. This is where all student lessons, activites, assignents, and quizzes are located. The daily optional zoom schedule can be found in the Canvas homeroom, so please check there if you would like to save the copy. If you need to contact me, the fastest way would be by using Canvas and I will get back to you that same day. If I have a lot of information that needs to be sent out, I may send that in a group email to parents. This school year is going to be different, but just know that we are all here for you and your children. Everyone is doing what they can to make sure you get the support necessary for success!
We’ve got this!
Please see our Canvas homeroom and look at the tab labeled "Important information from Mrs. D" to see great information about DVOA and conferences.
