20-21 School Year Info

Click for critical information regarding the 20-21 School Year.


Miner Students and Parents,


Welcome to the 2020-2021 school year!  As with all of CCSD, we are starting the school year on a distance education platform.  This website is intended to give you critical information to help you prepare for the first day of school, August 24, 2020.  We recognize the difficulty that our current situation brings. We also understand that our current global pandemic has created hardships and obstacles outside of school that may make learning difficult.  Please know that we are here to help in any way we can.  


To ensure that all students can and will be successful this school year, Sunrise Mountain has reduced our class schedule from an eight (8) period schedule to a seven (7) period schedule. We felt that having students take eight classes in a distance education model would be difficult and may not be the best for our students.. With this move, we are committed to providing all of the needed supports necessary to ensure that our students continue to excel.  

Device Deployment


Each student will need access to a chromebook, iPad, computer or similar device in order to complete assignments and access their classes online.  If you do not have a device and still need to check out a chromebook to access your online classes, please go here.  




Canvas is the Learning Management System that we will be using.  Teachers will also use Google Meets for live classroom instruction.  Students will log into their Canvas account by going to http://canvas.ccsd.net/ and use their AD credentials (normal school login.)  If you do not know your username or password, please go to http://myaccount.ccsd.net/.


To help students get started with Canvas, we have created a Virtual Orientation video and cheat sheet.











In order for students to maintain their access to Canvas, families must complete Online Registration for the current school year.  If you have not completed Online Registration for this year, please click here.


Bell Schedule 


The attached bell schedule will be utilized during distance education.  Students are expected to attend all of the live sessions for each class.  Students will not be successful if they are not following the bell schedule each and every day.  It is essential that students are logged into their first class every morning at 8:00 a.m. just as if they were in the building. 




Student Schedules


Schedules will be accessible in Infinite Campus, and a copy mailed home, on Monday, August 17, 2020.  If there is an issue with your schedule, or you would like to request a schedule change, please email your individual Counselor.
