Google Classroom Guardian Summaries


 

While parents and guardians do not have access to their child's Google Classrooms, those who wish to receive Email Summaries about online assignments may request to be added as a Guardian in Google Classroom.

To be added as a Guardian

1) Email your child's teacher and request to be added as a Guardian in Google Classroom. Supply the teacher with your child's name, the class, and the email address you wish to receive these summaries through.

2) The teacher will invite you as a Guardian. Watch your email for an invitation (you may check your spam folder, depending on your email settings), confirm that the student listed is your child, and click "Accept Invitation." You will have 120 days from the date the invitation is sent to accept.

3) Upon clicking "Accept Invitation," you will be directed to a page which will allow you to adjust your email summary settings. You may choose to receive daily or weekly summaries of your student's assignments and activity in Google Classroom (across all subjects!), and may choose to stop receiving the summaries at any time.

Please note: To manage your email summaries, you will need to set up a free Google Account. You do not need a Gmail address to accomplish this; just use your preferred email to set up a free Google Account if you do not already have one.
