  •  Google Classroom Guardian Updates

    Stay connected with what's being assigned and your student's activity on Google Classroom. Google Classroom has a great feature that allows you, as a guardian, to receive email summaries about your child's work. Your child's teacher will send you a guardian invitation to the primary email you provided at registration, or you may email your child's teacher to provide them with the email address you'd like to use.

    1. The teacher or administrator emails you an invitation to join your student’s class.

    2. In your email program, open your email invitation.

    3. Click Accept.
      If you’re not the guardian, click I’m Not The Guardian.

    4. Click Accept to confirm.
