Hi  @rkreider918951  , and  Welcome to the Canvas Community!

 @isobel_williams ‌ has given you great advice, but I will add one thing. 

I just checked, and your school has enabled pairing codes, and this information is posted on your school's website........... 

"Parents can access their student’s classes on Canvas through the parent portal and see assignments, resources and check grades. To access Canvas parent accounts, please follow the directions below.

  1. Click on http://elkhart.instructure.com
  2. Click on parent access in the top right corner
  3. Sign up for a parent account
  4. You will need a student pairing code to create an account (what is a pairing code and how do I get one?)
  5. After you create an account, log in to http://elkhart.instructure.com anytime to see your student’s work, assignments, grades, comments and to communicate with the teacher."

I hope that this helps,
