Accessing Your CVHS Course on a Mobile Device.
All CVHS courses whether on Canvas or GradPoint can also be accessed on a mobile device such as a smart phone or tablet. You will need the Canvas Student app for any course in Canvas, and the Puffin Academy app is for any course in GradPoint.
Most mobile devices do not support Flash, which makes it difficult to view and complete some of the GradPoint content.
The Puffin Academy app has been developed to be used as an Internet browser that can make accessing the GradPoint content that uses Flash possible.
Puffin Academy enforces site filtering by allowing only whitelisted educational websites.

Remember that all work in your CVHS courses must be completed by 11:59 PM on May 31, 2018.
If you do not finish a course by the May 31st deadline you may re-register for the course, but coursework will not be saved and will not be transferred over when the 2018-2019 school year starts on June 11, 2018.
Even though the deadline for coursework to be completed is May 31, 2018 we recommend that you continue to work through your courses now.
Don't wait until the last minute to submit assignments or take a proctored final!
