Email your students, co-teachers, or guardians

This page is for teachers. Students go here.

You can send an email to your students, co-teachers, and guardians from Classroom using your Classroom account.

Before you begin

  • To email students, your administrator needs to turn on Gmail for you and your students.
  • For your students to send email in Classroom, the Gmail and Directory services must be turned on for students. For help, contact your Google Workspace administrator.
  • You can email to up to 100 recipients at once. If a class has more than 100 students, you’ll need to email some students first and then send the message again to the remaining students.
  • You can only email one class at a time. To send a message to multiple classes at once, post an announcement to multiple classes.
  • Guardians don’t need a Gmail account for you to send them an email from Classroom.
