Email your students

This page is for teachers. Students go here.

You can email a single student, a group of students, or an entire class. You can also send a private note to a student when you grade and return an assignment. To email students, Gmail must be turned on for you and your students.

Limits on sending email

  • You can send an 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. For details, go to Email sending limits.
  • You can only send an email to a single class at a time—To send a message to multiple classes at once, post an announcement to multiple classes. For details, go to Post announcements to your students.

My students can't send email
