Parent Info for GCR

Our teachers use Google Classroom (GCR) to assign work and make resources available to students. Unfortunately, there is currently no means of access in GCR to allow parents to see what the student sees.

However, GCR does offer Guardian Email Summaries to be sent to parents on either a daily or weekly basis.

If you would like to receive these digest emails, please request them from your one of your student's teachers. Once your email address is connected to your student, you will receive digest info from all classes that have Guardian Summaries enabled.

What’s included in an email summary?

  • Missing work—Work not turned in 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 activity—Announcements, assignments, and questions recently posted by teachers.

Guardians who sign up for email summaries can’t see the Stream, Classwork, People, or Grades pages in Classroom.

When do guardians get summaries?

Guardians can get emails daily or weekly and can unsubscribe at any time.

Guardians won’t get an email summary if:

  • There's no activity to report for the given time period.

  • All their student’s teachers turned off notifications for their classes.

  • They accepted the invitation but chose not to get any summaries.

  • They aren't connected to any student in Classroom.
