Guide to Google Guardian

As a guardian, you can get email summaries about your student’s activity in Classroom. Email summaries do not include grades. For grades, ask your student or contact the teacher. 

In email summaries, you can review:

  • Missing work – Work not submitted when the summary was sent.
  • Upcoming work – Work that’s due today and tomorrow (for daily emails) or that’s due in the upcoming week (for weekly emails).
  • Class activities – Announcements, assignments, and questions recently posted by teachers.

If there’s no activity to report or if a teacher turns off email notifications, you might not get an email summary. 

Get email summaries

To get email summaries of your student’s work, you must accept an email invitation from a teacher or administrator. You have 120 days to accept an invitation before it expires.  

  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

  5.  Click Accept to confirm.

When you accept an invitation, you and your student get an email confirmation.

The best option for parents is to use a google account. If you want to use another email account, please ensure you are not signed into any google account when accepting the invite, as google classroom will assume you want to use the account signed into google.
