CANVAS LOGIN INFO/HELP

We’re working hard to make life easier for parents and students with regard to logging into Canvas.

EC3 - GRADE 2 PARENTS

This week, we are updating EC3 through Grade 2 emails and logins so parents will no longer use their parent email address to log in to their child’s Canvas account. This will make things simpler and quicker for parents and allow them more flexibility in viewing their child’s account. By end of week, EC3-Grade 2 parents will be emailed their child’s login information.

GENERAL LOGIN LOCATION

Also, please make sure you log in to Canvas through canvas.ldi.global. If you have more than one child accessing their WYIS email and Canvas accounts on one device, you MUST log out of both programs before logging in as another student. If you do not, that will probably cause you problems.

Thank you for your patience as we work through these processes.

SECONDARY OFFICE HOURS

Dr. Rehm has set up Open Office Hours for secondary students from now until September 11.

  • Hours: Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday from 8-8:30 (China time), and Wednesday from 8-8:15 (China time)
  • Zoom link: HERE
  • Meeting ID: 983 0421 1774
  • Students were emailed the password.

KEEPING SAFE IN THE LIBRARY

In keeping with COVID-19 safety procedures, parents are not allowed in the library for the first few months of school. We are working on an alternative way for parents to still borrow library books without entering the library. Thank you for your patience as we work through our safety procedures on campus.

SAFE & CLEAN WATER

Our Academic and Athletic Buildings are equipped with water machines that students can use to refill their water bottles. The filter on the machines ensures the water is as safe and healthy as possible. Every floor has one water machine students can access. Our main lobby holds the water machine for the first floor, which both parents and students can use whenever needed. Our goal: to help our students, staff, and community stay as safe and healthy as possible.
