Google Classroom offers a program called Guardian Summaries. This program allows parents to receive a weekly or daily summary of assignments and classroom activities. ... Google Classroom's main function is student and teacher collaboration and communication.
As a guardian, you must receive and accept an email invitation before you can receive email summaries. Only teachers can send these invitations. Make a request to the teacher to send you an invite.
You have 120 days to accept an invitation before it expires.
- The teacher or administrator emails you an invitation for a particular student.
They can send it to any email address.
- In your email program, open your email invitation.
- Click Accept.
If you’re not the guardian, click I’m Not The Guardian.
- Click Accept again.
- (Optional) To access the email summary settings page, create a Google Account.
When you accept an invitation, you, your student, and the person who invited you (the teacher or administrator) receives an email confirmation.
To manage your email summary settings, you need a free Google Account. You don’t need a Gmail address to create the account. You can use your current email address.
- In your email program, at the bottom of any email summary, click Settings.
On the email settings page, click Create New Account.
Fill in the requested information and submit.
The email settings page opens.
- You can choose the frequency of the emails, such as daily or weekly.
Note: Daily means Monday to Friday. You won't receive email summaries on Saturdays or Sundays.
You can unsubscribe or remove yourself from Classroom 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
