About guardian email summaries

This article is for students.

Guardians can only be added for students using Classroom with a G Suite account. For details, see About Classroom user accounts.

When your guardian joins Classroom, they receive regular emails about your work and classes. These emails, known as guardian email summaries, include information about:

  • Missing work—Work that’s late at the time the email was sent
  • Upcoming work—Work that’s due today and tomorrow (for daily emails) or work that’s due in the upcoming week (for weekly emails)
  • Class activity—Announcements, assignments, and questions recently posted by teachers 

A teacher or school administrator can invite a guardian to receive email summaries about you. When a guardian is added for you, you’ll receive an email letting you know who it is and their email address. If you don’t recognize a guardian, contact your teacher. 

Here's an example email your parent or guardian will receive:
