Google Classroom Resources

Parents and Guardians,

Ask your student for an invitation to join our Google Classroom for 2019-2020 as a Guardian in order to receive important classroom information. All you need to do is share your preferred email address with your student in order for them to send you an invitation.

What does this mean exactly? When guardians join a student’s Google Classroom, they receive regular, automatic email summaries. Guardians choose the frequency of the emails—daily or weekly—and can unsubscribe at any time.

Guardian email summaries include:

  • Missing work—Work that’s late at the time the email was sent
  • Upcoming work—Work that’s due today and tomorrow (for daily emails) or work that’s due in the upcoming week (for weekly emails)
  • Class activity—Announcements, assignments, and questions recently posted by teachers

Thanks for supporting your student and joining our Google Classroom to receive daily or weekly email summaries!
