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.

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. Then send the message again to the remaining students. For more information, see Gmail sending limits in the G Suite Administrator Help Center.

You can’t email students in different classes all at once. Instead, you could post an announcement to multiple classes.
