Set up guardian email summaries

This page is for teachers.

You can only add guardians for students using Classroom with a G Suite account. For details, see About Classroom user accounts.

If your school administrator has turned on guardian email summaries, you can choose which classes to include in those summaries. When you include a class, guardians can receive automatic regular emails about their students in that class. 

Before you can invite, remove, or email guardians: 

  • You must use Classroom on a web browser or the Android app.
  • Your administrator must verify that you're a teacher.
  • Your administrator must give you permission to manage guardian email summaries.
