    Where can I view the Virtual Whirlie Nation Open House Video? 

    Each year, Grimsley welcomes our community back to school with a campus celebration that features tours and introductions to teachers and the Whirlie Way.  This year, the Whirlie Nation Celebration streamed the open house from the Grimsley Facebook page.

    How to Create a Parent/Guardian Observer Account for Canvas

    1. Log into Student Canvas Account via ncedcloud.org
    2. Go to Account by clicking the person icon in top left of screen
    3. Select Settings
    4. Click the “Pair With Observer” button (lower right of screen or bottom of screen depending on device)
    5. Write down the code

     Then the parent/guardian creates the account by…

    1. Go to https://gcs.instructure.com/login/canvas(this is not the same link as for students, please make sure you use this url)
    2. Select “Parent of a Canvas User? Click here for an account”
    3. Enter your name, email, choose a password, and enter the pairing code (#5 from above)
    4. Start observing!

     

    Still having trouble?  Email School Librarian, Jen Worrells, for assistance.  worrelj@gcsnc.com

    SMART Phone Access

    Once you have your Pairing Code, you can download the Canvas Parent App to your Android or iOS Device. To locate GCS in the App, enter gcs.instructure.com to search for school. Select “Create An Account” and use your Student’s Pairing Code.

    Can parents join classroom Teams meetings?

    No. If you wish to see what it is happening in the classroom, you can sit beside your student at their device. 


     

    My student does not have a device.  What can they do? 

    We recognize that every student will need a device and are working with the district to get more for distribution.  Currently, if your student(s) do not have a device: 

    1. Make sure you are on the list to receive one when available.  
      Text @needlaptop to 81010 (once you have received a device, please remove yourself from this Remind list.
    2. Students should read every day. They can familiarize themselves with their textbooks (see textbook pick up schedule above). 

     

    1. If your student has a Smart Phone, they can download the Canvas and Teams Apps in order to view and join a live meeting with Teachers. This is not ideal but will help keep your student up-to-date until they have a device.
