Schoology

Schoology at Elmwood

Schoology is our primary way of communication with parents and students at Elmwood. All the information our current families will need on a day-to-day basis will be found on Schoology. Please use the following instructions to sign up to Schoology and join our “Junior School Parent Updates”Group OR our “Middle/Senior School Parent Updates” Group. These groups are where you will find the school calendar, information about school events, the weekly Bistro menu, letters home and more.

You will also be able to connect to your daughter’s Schoology account, giving you a better understanding of her experience here at Elmwood. If you have any questions you can always start by asking your daughter, as she’ll soon be an expert on Schoology—she’ll be using it every day.

The following instructions will help you sign up for your Schoology Account.


Creating your Schoology account

Joining Schoology is easy, simply visit the Schoology Parent Sign up page to create your parent account. Schoology will now prompt you to enter your daughters code.  If you are unsure of your daughter's code, please contact us.

Once you have entered the code, you will be prompted to fill in your own details, including your email address, to complete your registration. You only need this code once, so you do not need to write it down, however both parents can create their own account using this same code.

Once you are registered, you can return to http://www.schoology.com whenever you would like to log back in. Click the Login button at the top right then type your email address and password to login.

If you already have a Schoology Account and you’re adding your second daughter. Login to Schoology, click the arrow at the top right, and choose ‘add child’. Put the access code above into the box that pops up.

Once you have signed in to Schoology, you will be able to join groups and set your preferences.  The following series of videos demonstrate the most common tasks.  

Smart Phone App

Schoology has free App for both iPhone, iPad and Android devices. So download it and you can see what's up at Elmwood from wherever you are. Trying to access Schoology through the web browser on your phone or tablet can cause problems so always use the App. Choose the "Email Login" option when signing in to Schoology on the App.

If you have any trouble or questions you can ask your daughter, your daughter's homeroom teacher or Matt Perreault, our Director of Technology.
