Message to Secondary Parents to Reset Password

Dear Parents/Guardians of Students in Grades 7-12:

Tuesday, September 8, 2020, is the first day of school for students. Due to our 100% virtual start for the school year, there are a few steps students must follow in order to join their classmates and teachers in Canvas for each of their classes on the first day.

Please share the following steps with your children in grades 7-12. 

Prior to September 8th

STEP 1: (FOR STUDENTS USING A PERSONAL DEVICE ONLY) Create a Google Chrome Profile using the student’s existing CRSD account (

STEP 2: Reset Your CRSD Password

On the First Day of School – September 8th

STEP 3: Login to the Council Rock Canvas Site. Students must use this site to access their classes. (

Chrome is the preferred browser to access Canvas. Do not use Internet Explorer.

Bookmark this link as a favorite for future reference.

Use the Student ID as the username and newly reset password from STEP 2 to login to Canvas.

STEP 4: Once in Canvas, students will see a personal dashboard showing classes.

STEP 5: Accept the course invitations. Be sure to accept the invitations for all of the courses. 

STEP 6: Students should select their first-period class as listed on the schedule in the Home Access Center. The teacher will post instructions on the “Home” screen with a link to join the live class session.

We thank you in advance for helping students prepare for the start of school and look, forward to seeing their smiling faces virtually on September 8th!
