Send an email to students

This page is for teachers. Students go here.

You can email an individual student, a group, 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 both you and your students. If you don't see Gmail Email next to a student's name, contact your IT administrator to enable it.

You can’t send an email to more than 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 more information, see Gmail sending limits in G Suite.
